Bilstein yellow looks a lot like Ohlin's yellow...

Bilstein has also just got into the motorcycle world.

The original poster on the Reddit post replied to a comment about comparing to Ohlin's colours and said "100% Bilsteins logo. I personally ride ohlins and they do look similar though"

Most likely just stickers, but who knows.

Does anyone else have problems with their brake rotors getting contaminated while their bike is outside the vehicle? I've been working on a prototype cover for personal use that basically is a shell that clamps around the rotor and fork. Any thoughts or advice on the design would be appreciated!

I would try this out. How about making it so you don't have to remove the wheel from the frame/fork to attach it.

I haven't personally had issue with that but I could see it happening if you are driving on dirt roads often. Reminds me of the Muc-Off covers, although those are more for protecting the brake rotors while you're cleaning the bike and I don't know how secure it would be on a moving vehicle

Yep muc-off already makes this, i think it would work fine driving. my friend had this issue and if its really that much of an issue you may want to investigate your CAR, not your bike...

It's a big issue when traveling in CO during shoulder seasons, and Muc-Off covers work great and seem to becoming more popular

Spotted on Vital...lot's of new new. Vital members think that's a new Rockshox AXS reverb, I say it's a new Specialized electronic seat post

f*ck the seat post, new enduro!

edit nvm saw the motor. So tired of new e-bikes. Although the shock links are interesting, especially the forward shock mount allowing for the float X to be mounted with reservoir in the ventral position

If I would agree that’s definitely a Specialized post. The “Alien” single bolt clamp is straight from Specialized parts bin.

Also note that anyone testing a prototype Everb would likely also have AXS derailluer and RS suspension bits.

New Title Carbon Bar?

Essential to SST development was exploring the limits of manufacturing technology and applying it to build a light stiff and strong steel bike. The SST features SLM 3D printed Freaking Lasers hollow stainless steel chainstay yoke seatstay clevis and rear dropouts. The result is a stronger stiffer lighter and more elegant trail bike.

Rochshox inline coil? That sure looks like the RS rebound adjuster at the top.

Looks to be correct. I didn't realize there was a trunion mount DBIL and that it had that same look at the top.
