RockShox Releases 2016 Product Updates
nothin stealth about orange, though, color options wouldn't hurt sales. There's other brands like Carbon-Ti that make one a few grams lighter and almost 3x as much.

ENVE, Gravity, Michelin - Sea Otter 2015
Well for some that have the money, it's nice to have that option. Sometimes you wish there were something nicer out there because you do have the money. Anyway, I have a slope style bike I'm tempted to put these On. I really enjoy the rise i currently have of the widest, highest rise and reasonably light bars I'm using. Its the NS proof bar. These enves are lighter, less flex I'm sure, less rise but more sweep and a lot more money...if it had another half inch of rise I think I'd already be sold. Are there higher rise carbon bars out there?

Did You See That? RAM Bikes URT Chassis and Quadrilateral Fork - Sea Otter 2015
This is the guy making the fork I've always thought might be a good thing to try. It looks kinda wack right now but I've always thought there must be a cool and logical way to make a fork more like a shock. Shocks are always more responsive because they only have one stanchion (half the friction) and they're under a leverage ratio (even less depending on the ratio) so shocks are usually 3-4 times as responsive as a fork simply for those reasons. Anyway, I hope to see more people trying to make that practical. This is a start. I believe in it!

ENVE, Gravity, Michelin - Sea Otter 2015
I do kinda want that. But it's so much more money than I think it's worth. But then again...it's ENVE. I think they pride themselves in that name.

Legit, Commencal, Mongoose - Sea Otter 2015
All the practical things that make a pressfit favorable really only benefit the manufacturer's. Why? Because it saves time, money, and allows for a bigger shell which results in more rigidity around that area. But it makes me think 2 things. 1. What about the consumers? It's a pain in the ass when you get problems or scary sounds like creaking. On a carbon frame, that could mean something much more serious so it would make me pretty nervous. On top of that, who want's a creaky bike? Drives me nuts. 2. If it's about rigidity then why not change the standard of threaded BB to something of a wider diameter shell? I guess it's less about that and more about it being easier to make the frame. Finding ways to thread a carbon frame is kinda awkward but I think pressfits are too. Maybe they'll find ways to make it better. For now, I'm avoiding getting a new carbon frame that's press fit.
