A Closer Look at Haven Mercer's Mechanical Automatic Transmission Concept
@BarryWalstead: Look, obviously I didn't invent the singlespeed, and nothing I say here is going to be new information... :D But I converted my old CX bike commuter over to SS this fall, and it has been *incredible*- I never though a 10 year old, rim brake, aluminum cyclocross bike would ever bring such a smile to my face again, after riding all the new modern tech. There is something so satisfying about it. I have an old Scott Scale frame that I started racing mountain bikes on it high school, and just realized that I have ~90 percent of the parts to set it up singlespeed. The only thing I need is a fork. Which means, I'm about to have 2 shiftable (lol) bikes, and 2 SS. Try it, if you haven't before! Its so much fun, for so little investment!

Hey all! I’m letting go of my nearly brand new Kona Dr. Dew, due to the fact that I don’t really need it. It was kind of an impulse buy, and I just don’t have the garage space to justify keeping it :D This bike lives somewhere between a flat bar gravel bike, and a rigid mountain bike. Take off the fenders and add some slightly beefier tires and this would be a hoot off road. I may be switching the pictured bar/grips back for the OE Kona setup. Would discuss leaving the upgraded cockpit for the right price. Happy to sell the bike with either the OE Kona flat pedals, or for a few extra dollars I can throw in the XT Trail pedals. Bike has 1x12 Deore with 38T x 11-51. Willing to ship in the CONUS, buyer pays all shipping costs. I already have the original box and packaging for the bike, so it would just be the actual freight charges. Also open to local pickup in Hillsboro, Oregon.

Bike Check & Shop Tour: Lal Bikes' Nicolai Nucleon 16 Supre Test Sled
Look, I haven't ridden the thing, and I won't pretend that I even have any idea how it would feel compared to a, "normal," full-sus. That being said- major props to Cedric and Lal. To go with an idea that looks this unconventional, put it on the internet, and respond to comments himself? Only hoping all the best for the company.

First Look: Actofive I-Train
@93EXCivic: yeah, you’re correct. So let’s agree that both are wildly expensive, and the Specialized might be a slightly better bang for the buck?? Both ridiculous lol. Also both are probably more expensive than a 93 EX Civic
