2021 Marin Alpine Trail - Across the Pond Beaver
Short chainstays means they couldn't fit a seatstay bridge, as it would crash into the seat tube. With trunnion mount, there's no bolt tying the left and right sides of the rocker together through the shock eyelet. So they had to make a one-piece rocker to keep the system from being flexy as all get-out. It's not so much a feature as an explanation of the design trade-offs. No idea on the tolerance control, though.

Sunday Randoms - Sea Otter 2019
That one's nothing new. It's a transmission from a Fazua Evation system. Similar to e-bike systems from Shimano, Bosch, Yamaha, etc. Except that the removable battery also has the motor attached to it, rather than permanently bolted into the frame. https://fazua.com/en/evation/bikes/ They're working with a dozen brands already, and you wouldn't mistake any of them for 'analog' bikes up close. They're getting closer, though.

OneUp Announces Droppers in Every Length from 100mm to 210mm
I wouldn't say that everyone is subject to the problem you're describing. Some frames are only reamed to a certain depth, but have clearance for the actuator. But yes, it's good to have both dimensions published.

Does the new post have the same cable throw as the old one? In other words, are V1 and V2 posts both compatible with V1 and V2 remotes?

S-Ride's 13-Speed Drivetrain - Taipei Cycle Show 2019
I don't see the point for MTB use. SRAM's 10-15 12sp has a 500% range. Shimano's 10-51 12sp has a 510% range. This has a 472% range. Sure, it has narrower steps between gears, but MTBers don't want that. I once tried running a 12-27 9sp on my MTB and felt like I had to make too many shifts. I currently have an e.thirteen 9-46 11sp with 511% range, and the steps seem fine.

Marin Releases the 2019 Mount Vision
@skerby: True, but the virtual measurement is taken at a certain saddle height, and Marin has not shared that saddle height with us. I worked it out in CAD, and you have to drop your saddle to 590mm to get a 76° effective SA.

if you squat with your hips directly above the balls of your feet, you're squatting wrong.

Exploring the Relationship Between Handlebar vs Stem Length
@martn: Yes! I've been saying this for years. Giving us two bend angles is meaningless when every rider clamps the handlebars with the grip area in a horizontal or slightly inclined plane. I want 4 standardized measurements for bar fit: width (mm), bend (deg), stack (aka rise)(mm), and negative reach (mm). All measured with the grips rotated into a standardized plane (horizontal, or maybe 5° inclined).

Video: Danny MacAskill vs a Horse
Interesting that they edited it so Danny "won." Future Plans was clearly pulling away from Danny in every shot of them together.
