Bionicon doesn't care how the others do it. Their ClimbAir system allows riders to drastically change the bike's geometry with the push of a button that moves air from the fork to the shock, or vice versa, through interconnected tubes. This allows you to steepen the bike for climbing and then, just by pushing a button, slacken it out for descending. It's the rEVO 0 that's pictured here, that rolls on 27.5'' wheels and can be had with either 160mm or 180mm of travel via different rocker arms and its X-Fusion suspension.

The ClimbAir system allows for a massive 5-degrees of adjustment that can be stopped anywhere between being fully extended or fully compressed.

You've seen Cane Creek's beautiful eeWings titanium cranks before, and you'll be able to read a long-term review soon, but I couldn't resist snapping a photo of this unassembled set of arms. Cane Creek also had their new bar plugs on hand that, while not nearly as exciting as titanium cranks, do look pretty nice.

The Alpina Rootage is a sharp-looking lid thanks to its carbon panels that, according to the company, also increase safety. The styling is clearly enduro-esque, with more coverage at the back and room for goggles as well, and the vents lead into open channels inside the shell. There are a load of helmets out there to choose from but, if you ask me, this is one of the best lookings options on the market.

Joe's No Flats latex-based Super Sealant is said to be able to plug holes up to 6mm in size, and unlike some other sealant, it works in temps as low as -20 Celsius.

The Granite tool pouch and strap system is an easily configurable setup that lets you carry all sorts of stuff, from the tiny tool pouch to a tube, levers, or whatever else you can fit. The pouch is made from heavy-duty Cordura, and it's home to a small ratchet wrench, an extension, and a bunch of tool bits that will fit most things on your bike. The strap is long enough to wrap around any part of your bike, and an inner Velcro loop is what holds your tube or other bits in place.

Fork legs are so over-rated, aren't they? In an effort to maximize aerodynamics, this machine sees its front wheel nearly completely enveloped by a fairing.

This carbon fiber beast comes from 1994 and was the result of a collab between Scott and CAT. Check out that seat mast!

Push's new ElevenSix SS sees its reservoir offset to one side to allow it to fit more frames, including the new Nomad. The SS model looks different due to the new layout, but all of the adjustments remain, and it's still assembled at Push's HQ using parts that are almost entirely manufactured in-house. If you have an older ElevenSix and want to convert it to the new SS layout, Push can do that for you, too, by replacing the old piggback bridge. The new ElevenSix SS retails for the same $1,200 USD as its predecessor.

 from what I can tell it's a stupid rebranded Taiwan or Chinese e-bike abomination, thing. Every one and their mother has branded it, or a version of it. Including Caterham. Yes Caterham cars/F1

 That aero bike is amazing, pity it no longer meets the UCI's definition of a bicycle.
  • + 8
 Iron man and time trail don't care what UCI calls a bike, and with aero like that this is what this bike will excel at.

 Finally someone made that Park tool pizza cutter into a bike.

 @Kustomango: it really pisses me off if triatlon said f*ck it to bike rules and we have been getting incredible designs on a bike thats is simply made for going on flat roads. imagine what could happen for roadies. road bikes are missing out on so much inovation for very stupid reasons

 @optimumnotmaximum: follow the brake lever down. You can see the outline of the cutout for the front wheel to turn. The pivot is where all the bars meet he frame.

 so impressed with that bike.... but you know, the UCI bike rules have nothing to do with ppl who want to ride fast for fun... i might buy this bike just to finally be able to ride fast on a road bike!

 in what ways are ElevenSix shocks so amazing to cost 1200$? Just curious. Never ridden one.

 Ah yet more designs consisting of military colours and patterns. You'll start looking like an air soft hero in no time

 Bionicon has an interesting concept there, would like to try one out.

 They are amazing in the flesh... err, metal. I tested one close to ten years ago now and if they have improved, well worth a look. the difference made by the button is incredible. They also (or used to) manufacture their own fork and hub and had a great through axle QR system. German engineering.

 @iamamodel:10 years ago I had a Nomad and a Bionicon Ironwood. I raced megavalanche qualis with Ironwood with all their own suspensions and made 3rd best time all qualis arriving with Clementz... Then on day race I swop to Nomad cause was more pedally but they bring us to the qualis track cause storm prediction... Man Nomad felt like cheap toy compared when I raced the day before with Bionicon... how smoth their suspension were was incredible... also tried other models and I was amazed...

 A friend had a bionicon supershuttle about 10 years ago. Yes it's a little gimmicky but really loved that bike and rode it for a long time. There's a niche for everything I guess? :-)

 I love Ceepo bikes. They're pretty sick, and I met the owner - he was a cool dude. Love it.

 Who makes that tube/tool pouch frame attachment thingy @mikelevy ? It looks kinda cool...
  • + 2
 Im going to assume its these guys:

www.granite-design.com

Dont think the new pouch is up on their site yet though.

 Normally not a fan of the stupid/weird stuff, but the Ceeco is awesome.

 I will buy that push rear shock when I win the lotto for sure

 On the Joe's No Flats sealant: 6mm, I doubt it.
