Here's the Latest Long-Travel 29er Fork – Taipei Cycle Show
@EnduroManiac: not all new bikes feature boost forks, and sure as hell no one is 'upgrading' to boost front end. I would be very surprised if the idea of 110x15 is catching on, it may finally be time for the mtb giants to stop trying to make existing standards obsolete to drive product sales and actually just go with what works better, what has worked for a very long time and what already exists... 20x110, you can make fork legs wider apart without increasing axle width if plus tyres is your thing too.

Tioga's Prototype Glide G3 Tire - Taipei Cycle Show
Oh gawd they were crap! The fat66 dh versions were great though. I don't trust tyres under 1kg without butyl inserts & dual ply, ain't nobody got time for flats.

New Tires from Maxxis, WTB and Vee - Taipei Cycle Show
@xeren: I ride similar terrain to what you're describing, the HR2 has the best out and out grip but the aggressor really isn't far behind at all, it only loses grip on those climbs where you might as well walk anyway, it also rolls waaaay faster than the HR2, I use the DD casing in 2.3"

New Tires from Maxxis, WTB and Vee - Taipei Cycle Show
Ardent rolls ok, but has no traction on steep climbs if it's slightly loose or wet as the centre knobs are too close together and if you lean the bike past a certain angle they just lose grip entirely, no warning whatsoever... The aggressor is a much better tyre with similar rolling speed, would like to try the tomahawk too

New Tires from Maxxis, WTB and Vee - Taipei Cycle Show
My current bike is 650b as there were no cheap 26" options, my next bike will be a 26", there still plenty of aftermarket support for 26" from the decent brands, and I just don't get what all the hype about 650b is, it's ok, just a little less fun. Will be looking at a boutique brand that still makes 26" moving forward.

Box Components' New Carbon Wheelset - Taipei Cycle Show
errrr... why not just mold the carbon to the shape of the 'Inter Spoke Milling' technique that Mavic uses, surely you would entirely ruin the grain structure by machining it afterwards!? Also 28 spokes means you're limited for replacements in a hurry :-/

You guys never heard of shock tunes then? Properly set up low speed damping beats mechanical pedalling efficiency every time
