Ironically a former rocket power parts rep just dropped off six new old stock rocket parts / scary fast skinsuits for me to put on ebay.

Another New Standard? Here Comes Boost 20x110
Twenty years later... Honestly this should have happened when rockshox produced the boxxer and dho with a 20mm thru axle in 1997. They had already decided on 20 " 110 spacing, they could have standardized the industry around a wider flange and disc offset for dh forks. As to marzocchi and their QR20 in 2001. It sucked. It was an open dropout lowers with a big qr axle. If you didnt tighten it correctly the wheel fell out... Usually on the first jump landing. They then had had redesigns with wing cam paddles under the lowers to retain the axle which easily damaged and are nigh impossible to now find replacements for, and took longer to use than a simple bolt in threaded axle. Rockshox meanwhile came up with their 20mm tullio dropout and axle for the psylo forks that worked so well they never had to be improved/redesigned and indeed fox copied for their 36s fork lowers.

Spot's New 29er Has a Carbon Fiber Leaf Spring – Sea Otter 2017
Setting aside slingshot using a fiberglass spring board pivot... thirty years ago... there's both Cannondale and Arrow Racing that have done the carbon fiber leaf-spring pivot on linkage full suspension bikes.

Someone put Tara Llanes on one... (though since she works for another adaptive cycle brand that might be a conflict)

Spot's New 29er Has a Carbon Fiber Leaf Spring – Sea Otter 2017
"What sets the Mayhem apart the rest of the dual-link full suspension bikes on the market is the use of a carbon fiber plate to join the swingarm to the seat tube" Yeah except that technology has been done before by other brands. And I'm not talking about the fiberglass link used on Slingshots. Manufacturers have been using carbon fiber leaf springs in actual full suspension linkage bikes for a LONG time...go thru MBAs from the early 90s from issues where they attended the taipei and euro bike shows and you'll find a lot of them.

The Beginning of Modern DH? 1994 Foes LTS Prototype - Sea Otter 2017
Let's see how many errors I can spot... "three-finger xtr levers" .. .. actually they were properly designated 2-finger levers.... RC just has small hands. "1 inch steerer tube" .... actually the Foes LTS had 1 1/4 inch evolution size steerer tubes...and they were steel. As to the fact the restorer taking short cuts on parts... road cranks actually were used on DH bikes at that time... because again...easier to source chainrings that expensive custom order ones for 110 pattern MTB cranks. And there were direct/linear pull brake options in 1994 (Shimano's V-brakes didn't debut until the 1995 race season).
