The Cool and the Strange- Interbike 2016
Sadly it seems almost all bike rack makers on the market have gone to S***t. They are all slightly altered versions of the same thing. Even the high end ones start falling apart after a year or so and cost WAY WAY too much for what it is. Notice very few pros are ever seen in video with these crap racks. Because they cant handle anything rougher than a paved road. Northshore racks and Swagman racks are about all thats durable any more.

Pinion's Affordable Gearbox Nears Production - Interbike 2016
@makripper: Ain't bad at all. It likely replaces a little bit of frame weight too. Which would be extremely hard for anyone to calculate. That weight is being placed in the absolute best spot possible for a bike too. At same time removing unsprung weight from the rear wheel. The added ride performance should more than make up for the overall weight hit.

Pinkbike Poll: How Many Suspension Adjustments Do You Actually Need?
the worst is knowing what adjustments do and not having them. Like buying a new bike and having to deal with a lacking shock before you can upgrade.

Tech from the Pits: Vallnord DH World Cup 2016
The same type of device is used on mass produced cars. Im sure proper placement is absolutely key, but if that industry slip sit through with their tight wad bean counters, its probably legit.

No carbon layup will ever replace the beauty of finely CNC'd aluminum links and other bits. Finn Iles link is art!
