The Four-Year Story of Fin Woods' DIY Carbon Enduro Gearbox Bike
@enki: Torque is the issue. Us humans do not make much power. But damn, can we ever generate massive amounts of torque for fractions of seconds. Think about the length of your cranks and how hard you can push on them.

Atherton Bikes Release First 50 Bikes for Early Followers of the Brand
Sure, it is easy to create custom lugs. However, you will also need a CUSTOM jig to assemble it. If you are going to be building more than a single bike at a time, you will need many assembly jigs. Sorting that process out is not straight forward. Robot Bikes was doing it before, but it is we do not know if they ever got much past the one bike at a time stage. Doing this style of manufacturing at scale might not have been done before by them.

Interview: Vali Höll - The Future Becomes the Present
@Aem221: My wife did the Trek Dirt Series twice. It is a women's bike series that is truly all about the skills. They start the basics of body position on the bike if you are a beginner and cover the how to of jumps and drops of you are ready for it. Waterloo is the furthest east that the event is held, but there might be something closer.

Video: 77designz Goes Back to the Drawing Board After Their Prototype Bike Fails Lab Testing
As a product design engineer, patent trolls ought not to live. However, there are many good reasons to not have the idler on the main pivot. Given that the original designer did the work, solved the math, and then spent the money to protect their design, it seems totally fair that they would be able to make some money on their work an not have everybody instantly copy an original and good design. If everybody could copy everything instantly there would be much less incentive to create new designs. We would end up with less good engineering and more good marketing.
