First Ride: Eminent Onset 140
as an engineer, i hate seeing a skinny spindly piece with an unsupported hinge in the middle as a compression member.. its going to chew something out or break fairly quickly.

Allite's New Super Magnesium Alloy is Lighter Than Aluminum, Less Expensive Than Carbon - Interbike 2018
@rimbro: more heat treatment in terms of removing stresses caused by the weld than trying to temper the material...

Allite's New Super Magnesium Alloy is Lighter Than Aluminum, Less Expensive Than Carbon - Interbike 2018
My only concern with magnesium alloys would be fatigue, as that was a big issue with magnesium part in motorsports 20 yrs ago.. however, it they have addressed that issue with this material... I think its a great idea. Although i would be worried whether the people out there making the frames are capable of welding such a material and whether or not it is welded to such a spec that controls the heat inputs, etc and whether or not it can be heat treated afterwards. I have worked with alloys with high molly contents and are very susceptible to heat inputs, to the point where they can crack themselves with no external forces required. Part of the reason that Orange bikes last for so long, despite the horrible welds is that the whole frame is then correctly heat treated, resetting the crystalline structure of the alloy and removing any in-built stresses due to the welds. as for corrosion, I wouldnt be too worried as magnesium (like aluminium) oxidizes so fast, that it creates a ceramic coating that effectively protects the parent material.

First Look: Trek's New 2019 Remedy
@mikeyin19: as long as you're legs aren't longer than the designed amount sure.. but after that.. you end up putting a lot more weight over the rear wheel.

Forbidden Bike Company's High Pivot Trail Bike - Crankworx Whistler 2018
Looks awesome! So glad that High Single pivots are finally making their way onto the market in the trail, enduro and DH categories.. Im a convert from way back, when I had a Balfa BB7.. which I converted to an enduro bike quite successfully.
