Bosch Expands ABS For E-bikes With TRP & Tektro
100%. It interesting for mountain bike but I would LOVE this on the commuter. How many times have you had to emergency brake in the wet because a car is starting to drift into your lane or someone opens a door in front of you. Would be nice to not have to manage a front wheel slide while also filling your shorts.

Round Up: 13 Bike Industry Jobs Available Right Now
"Seeking an experienced engineer (degree not necessary)" Then you aren't seeking an engineer you are possibly seeking a product designer or a draftsperson but most likely just an underpaid CAD user.

Don't worry, it is also not the same colour as the team bikes.

Specialized Cuts Global Ambassador Program
I think turning against the people hit by cuts in almost any (but maybe not all) industries where profit has not actually dropped significantly probably does them a disservice. Lets be honest this is not a requirement for Specialized to be profitable or make a bottom line. This is a rehash of the typical corporate model where the second profit growth rate drops (note: not actual profit just growth) executive boards shift to aggressive cost cutting models in order to maintain share price growth and their own share-price or profit per dollar related bonuses that constitute so much of their compensation. People are more productive than they have ever been (largely due to the tools they can access), and they deserve better from companies that making them obsolete on a whim so a balance sheets looks a little better over a 12 month period.

You gotta want to save 2lbs of bike weight REAL bad to spend an extra 6000 freedom dollars (more than 8000 Canadian pesos for those counting) on it.

Video: Pro MTB Suspension Setup (Bracketing Properly) | How To Bike Season 2 Episode 2
@ismellfish: You *probably* aren't actually leaking air on the pump disconnect but actually losing a bit on the reconnect. All the digital shock pumps (90% of which are from the same manf.) have a zero loss coupling; the hiss you hear when removing is the shock pump hose dumping its air. As the couplings wear I do find they can leak a little, you could probably replace the o-ring inside the schraeder valve to help this. If you are seeing the pressure drop between readings it is because when you attach the pump some air is needed to pressurise the hose. If you need to get a clean reading of current pressure a trick I use is to gently thread the pump on until you just feel the hose engage. Then you can do a couple of small pumps to pressurise the hose close to what you expect the fork/shock to be at. Then you give it a quick turn and take a final reading.

It is a non-issue. The factor of safety on a pump will be loads higher than you will be able to increase by compressing by hand. Might cause issues with very low quality analog gauges from topping them out IF you were to exceed the pressure significantly. Digital gauges will not have a problem. Worth noting that compressing the suspension to equalise the pressure between positive and negative is mandatory when checking pressures or you will have meaningless readings. On many shocks you can actually hear the equalisation (especially when inflating a significant amount such as from zero). Also if you are inflating from zero you should equalise along the way.

VHS Anti-Chainslap Tape Now Comes In 6 Different Colors
I used to be all in on the mastic solutions but I think this is probably the best possible product for reducing chain slap. It's a very well though out riff on the mastic humps that a lot of WC teams were using. The advantage over mastic is the surface material is less gummy on your chain and the outer surface is less adhesive for other stuff to stick to it. Pretty much exactly the same noise-damping level as a mastic/foam hump combination. Looks a lot tidier than mastic too (although not quite as nice as some of the OEM options in my opinion).
