Rigid forks = better efficiency on the road

Chainguards, more common in other countries where cycling is more widely
accepted as form of transportation vs. a toy or recreation device?

Price, depends on the bikes? For example?

Quoting Ari Pollak <ajp at aripollak.com>:

* So I'm currently in the process of shopping for a new bike, and have a few
* questions.
* - Why do some bikes come with a chainring guard and some don't? Could
* something as simple as that really affect performance or weight?
* - Why do hybrid bikes tend to be significantly more expensive than
* mountain bikes, even when the mountains have multiple shocks?
* - Why do some people prefer stiff forks instead of front shocks if they
* come out to the same price?
