Fasst Company Announces Flexx Handlebar
Interesting as they also make footpegs for Moto and Adv bikes that isolate (elastomer) vibes passed through the frame into your feet. Very popular particularly with Adv riders.

Fasst Company Announces Flexx Handlebar
Fasstco is a very well run company who took 5 years to develop these bars.Their Flexx Moto bars are the "must have" item for all us old Moto guys. Game changers even for highly tuned and perfect suspenion bikes. I have no doubt these will be very well received particlularly for ENduro Racers and those that ride really rough and rocky terrain. Groomed flow trail and weekend trail riders probably not. The pivot and small amount of travel is virtually imperceptible when slamming across big chunky stuff. But you will notice the relief in arm pump, shoulder pain and hand numbness. I will be getting set.

@Jokesterwild: But they went to the same pricing model with the same name. Might as well be partners. RTIC is the equivalent and much cheaper.

The One Tool That World Cup Mechanics Can't Live Without?
Knipex (Pliers), WIHA (Screwdrivers)and WERA (Wrenches and Sockets) are the Holy Trinity of hand tools once you get past the Chinese trash running through most tool boxes.

Video: The Cannondale / Pong Concept Bike
@fecalmaster: I also saw a proto of a single sided fork setup for moto. They took both legs of the std USD Kayaba (I think) forks and machined new triples and bottom yokes to combine them into single sided structure . I questioned why? Then this year Yamaha comes out with a 3 wheeler that has a similar design. HMmmmmm? I think they just wanted the single sided setup and weren't projecting it to a 3 wheeler at the time, 30 years ago. I envied the Pongs ability to aggressively pursue their ideas, wacky or not. It was an exciting time in bikes back then.

@mikelevy: Looong gone. Funny how you don't always see the value of hanging onto stuff. Although I did hesitate about those. I had multiple chainrings that went with it from the ones I snapped.

I snapped 2 of them. But they were the actual Magic MC not CODA branded yet. I sold the 3rd set I had before I destroyed them.

@fecalmaster: This was created at Pongs Machine Shop on Whidby Island . I went there to get some parts for my Magic MC cranks BITD and saw pieces. They also were developing a CNC'd very low rpm and oversquare motorcycle engine. I remember thinking they were a little wacky after I saw that one. Engine development goes way beyond making cranks and bicycle parts. I wonder sometimes where they ended up as it was basically Alex and his dad.

Opinion: Moving The Needle
The one I am most reminded of with this machined and glued aluminum is Magic Motorcycle cranks. I owned several sets(3) and broke 2 in half. Their FEA was lacking for sure. Hopefully Pole's (soon to be Chuk Norris) is on point.
