Pinkbike Poll: What Area of Mountain Bike Technology Needs the Most Improvement?
Cheap fully integrated electronics. $50 for a switch that controls all derailleurs, chain tension, seat post, fork and shock travel, all rebound and dampening adjustments, and tire pressure. This will be the next revolutionary technology for mountain biking. Everything in the last 10 years is simply incremental. Imagine descending with setting 1: chain tension is adjusted, fork and shocks are set to fully open, rebound and compression are set, seat post is lowered, tire pressure is increased 3psi to avoid flats. At the bottom of the G-out in one flick, your bike immediate transforms into a goat with setting 2: chain tension is increased, fork goes to 75% lockout, shock to 100% lockout, rebound and compression are adjusted, seat post is raised, tire pressure is slightly decrease in the rear for better traction. Hell you could even have it GPS linked to your trail so your bike changes settings for each section of trail, this would be a game changer for racing.

Review: Pacenti PDent Handlebar and Stem
Or you just taper the bar towards you with any regular stem and you can have a negative virtual stem length, no dent needed, this is ridiculous haha.

Intense Uzzi 275 - Interbike 2015
There is already a very clear article covering all axle sizes and why 148 is different than 150, etc

First Ride: Santa Cruz's Updated Bronson and 5010
It doesn't matter what you think about the 148 standard. The fact is that a lot of new bikes are coming with it in 2016 and I would guess more than half sold in 2017 will have it. YOU and people like you are not the driving economic force behind the market. Personally I'd rather not see another incremental standard like this, but if you add up all of the incremental standards over the last 20 years it makes a huge difference. After I buy a new bike I have yet to ever replace the rear hub or even the rear wheel, which I would guess is most of the market. Therefore most people will simply adopt the 148 standard and it's supposed benefits, and go on with their lives.

Factory Tour: Inside ENVE Composites
"will always be extortionate in price as a result" Totally false, you can already buy quality carbon rims from light bicycle for $250/ea. Once ENVEs patent expires in 10 years, and manufacturing and material sciences are more developed, I have no doubt you be able to buy this exact rim for much less than even $250.

First Look: Giro Montaro Helmet - Crankworx Whistler 2015
The safety and manufacturing molds arguments are all bullshit, the exact same safety tests and manufacturing molds are required by a $15 Bell helmet as required by law. It's 100% marketing and sales boloney that it costs so much. Pay it if you want, but know that the ONLY thing the price is based on, is the most you will pay.

First Look: Industry Nine Trail S
They look nice but there is nothing new or innovative, and are overpriced. For $372 you can build spank/MTB270 wheelset that weighs 1633g. Or for $200 more use carbon light bicycle rims and shave another 200g off. Plus you can choose from many colors.

First Ride: Cannondale Habit Carbon 1
They sell $7k bikes so you feel like you're getting a "great deal" when you buy a $2-4k version.
