Magura Vyron Wireless Dropper Post - First Ride
No matter what you do though, there is electricity controlling your locomotion in the system between your brain and your muscles. A bike is just a step backwards in what biology learnt a long time ago - controlling things mechanically is inefficient. To feel 'fully connected to your bike', you'd best get ready to plug the gears and brakes directly into your brain so electricity can do its thing! I love bikes because of their mechanics, I can see it and understand it and repair it. Even design it. But I'd actually like to be able to code my bike as well because the bike then is a closer representation of what we are as people; bio-electro-mechanical.

Stemtee-Nukeproof's Custom DH Shock
where there's money to be made, you can be damn sure companies will renege on prior comments... says the cynic in me.

Stemtee-Nukeproof's Custom DH Shock
I did read somewhere on here a while ago that CC were working on a remote lever for the CS. Still hoping for word on that front...

Stemtee-Nukeproof's Custom DH Shock
For the love of God it better come with a blow-off valve! The number of times I've gotten myself into a sticky situation over mouse droppings on a Sunday tootle... let alone Fort Bill WC!

5 Questions I Want Answered - Opinion
@jerrytek: I'm currently working on a concept frame that is 150/180 adjustable, but to get the most of the adjustment you need different components. I'm working on getting a working prototype this Summer to test the theories. Fingers crossed it's not unattainable!

5 Questions I Want Answered - Opinion
@pigit77: To a certain extent, it already exists. There are a couple of frames that are 26/27.5 compatible such as by Banshee. Any frame with a 1.5 headset will run any fork or geometry adjust. Bikes like the Intense Socom have interchangeable axle mounts for different standards and adjustable travel shock mounts have been around for donkeys years. I just don't know a single bike that allows all of this on one frame. I reckon the previous generation Scott Voltage probably ticks many of the boxes though.

Meet Fairdale Bikes' Front Derailleur Repurposing Division - Video
Naaw fella! Some of us abandoned a triple long before it was deemed a 'new tech'. I even ground down the mounting points on my old M960 so it now only runs a single... I forced it upon myself!
