First Look: Manitou's 180mm Mezzer Pro Fork and Mara Pro Shock - Garda Trentino 2019
The Shock sounds too good to be true -- then I look up the sizing options: metric/trunnion -- it is too god to be true :(

Stendec Data Acquisition: User Friendly System Anyone Can Own - Maribor DH World Cup 2019
I don't see this as a fit to the intended audience. As a privateer, you are driving to a venue, setting up camp, fixing food, checking the weather, talking to everyone else there, maintaining your equipment, etc. If you find time to mess with data acquisition as well, there's the question of what to do with the numbers once you have them. Even teams with someone dedicated to data acquisition and setup tend to lose interest once the novelty wears off. Three to five seconds sounds great but how do you credit that just to DAQ?

Race Face Announces New Next SL Crankset
@sarahlh: I agree there's nothing substantial in the press release with regards to performance or reliability. I'm not totally against carbon or raceface, the only carbon part on my bike is a raceface sixc bar. From where I sit as a consumer I don't have much info: - Some carbon cranks fail, reports of inserts loose. Not just raceface. I have no way of knowing how many, or whether this is an issue with production consistency or a general problem bonding aluminum to carbon. - A bike shop owner tells me carbon cranks are prone to loose inserts. - If I buy a pair and they do develop a problem, sounds like people usually are able to get them warrantied -- provided the shop that sold them still is around, the claim is not denied, and I have a spare set of cranks to keep my bike running in the meantime and I'm not injured due to the failure. Sorry @raceface, there's no info here to help me make an informed choice. Just "the product is better, trust us". I will give it a plus for being an onshore product. I just bought a new crank. My criteria were: - Accepts standard chainrings designed for SRAM direct mount (lots of good, cheap options readily available). - Inexpensive, reliable, available bottom bracket. - Stiff aluminum construction with reasonable weight. Aluminum with a better tensile strength or steel inserts so the pedal threads last. I had to compromise, seems like other than Shimano no one is interested in continuing to develop and manufacture aluminum cranks aside from an entry level offering. I guess that's just what people are buying.

Dan Atherton Unveils Prototype 22" Titanium BMX
Yeah, even if this frame would last as long as a steel frame it still means ponying up for a new one every 3 years. BMX frames are a wear item.

5 Details About SRAM's Wireless AXS Components
@Gasket-Jeff: The OEM version will only work if it can find the SRAM brakes that were on the bike when you bought it. After offering the app for free to build the user base, SRAM introduces a monthly subscription program. In five years, AXS parts are dirt cheap on Ebay because the Android app won't run on the current Facebook OS phones, and Android has gone the way of Windows Phone.

Guerrilla Gravity's Less Expensive, US-Made Carbon Frame
Would definitely be on the short list, but the seat tube length of 457mm in size M means it's for people with longer legs than me :(
