The reason that hydraulics are so popular with dropper manufacturers is that fluids are incompressible, and a valve is a much simpler mechanism to build and operate as compared to a mechanical brake, a collet system, or an indexing mechanism.

Interbike Tech-Fest: Special Nerd Worshippers Edition
26er will be around almost forever, but at some point they will move off the trails and out to the streets. Like so many other innovative bikes, the 26er's ultimate fate is to become some worker's or bar-hopper's daily driver. Watch for them, ripping through alleys and sidewalks at dawn or the late evening hours.

In Case You Didn't See It - A Blazing lap Around the Red Carpet
Lapierre's team riders were in on the bike's development from the start. Nico said that they wanted a slight change in the linkage rates, which has been done, so I think Blenki and Bruni wanted to stick with what they knew best through the end of the season. Loris and Ragot had great resullts on both tech and pedaling courses, so it must work well. We shall see.

Top Three Finds - Interbike 2014
Bio-Pace was originally designed to smooth out the pedal circle for road bikes after Shimano did extensive research on pedaling dynamics and discovered that even the best riders don't pedal in circles. The "ovalized" sections were timed opposite to what present asymetrical chainrings are: with peak power arriving when the smaller, "easier" section of the ring is pulling chain. This caused the leg to speed up, and as the cranks came through the "dead stroke" area, the larger segments of the chainring would momentarily slow down the cranks and thus convert the inertia of the rotating foot and leg into pulling power at that brief moment.
