Allite's New Super Magnesium Alloy is Lighter Than Aluminum, Less Expensive Than Carbon - Interbike 2018
@nojzilla: Thermoplastic composites are usually cast. All casting is, is injecting something as a heated liquid into a mold and allowing it to cool. Gun furniture and knife handles are often cast from zytel, which is a trademarked name for a glass fiber reinforced plastic family made by Dupont.

Allite's New Super Magnesium Alloy is Lighter Than Aluminum, Less Expensive Than Carbon - Interbike 2018
I wish RC had written this feature, he at least... was a frame builder, and was still building frames when beryllium first came on the bike scene. "It turns out beryllium is expensive and toxic, so that didn't really catch on, but scandium (actually an aluminum / scandium alloy) had a much more successful run. " It was ALWAYS know that beryllium was expensive and toxic. When American Bicycle Manufacturing made four Be frames... they had to use Be tubes bonded to oversized Al lugs, and even then the frames cost about $27,000 USD each... TWENTY FIVE YEARS AGO. And while the metal in a solid form isn't toxic...powdered Be is a both is toxic if inhaled, so even just machining it requires extensive air filters and ventilation setups to suck the dust away from the tooling operators. Scandium enhanced aluminum was expensive also, which is why it fell out of favor with bicycle manufacturers (the tubesets cost so much that frames in carbon weren't that much more of a price hike). As to Magnesium.... well... we've had casting suitable alloys for a long time... forks have been using it since the Rockshox Mag20...and it was used for wheels in the automotive and aerospace wheels long before then (the lancaster bombers used cast magnesium wheels). Kirk Precision was casting whole bike frames of magnesium in the mid 80s. Lodestar & Mg Litech were both using a russian magnesium alloy that was Tig weldable in the late 90s. I used to own one of those frames and powdercoat painted, it was 2 Ibs 11 oz for a 17 inch hardtail frame. And Easton had forged Mg stems only about 10 years ago that were great because Mg has better vibration damping characteristics than other structural metals. HOWEVER... un-protected Mg... whether paint, powdercoat, or artificial annodizing...is probably the MOST prone to oxidation and corrosion of any metal after steel. Its especially bad when exposed to salt water... in this area...where the city uses a LOT of rock salt in the winter...its not unusual to see suspension forks on winter commuter bikes that have had the entire dropout area dissolved away in only a couple years. I have just such a fork in my basement right now. There's almost nothing left of the dropouts.

Burning Question: Is Super Boost 157 Spacing Going to Become the New Standard?
Why stop at 157...why not just move to 177 ? It already exists as a fat bike standard, and riders are obviously willing to put up with the Q-factor of cranks on those since they far outsell downhill bikes.
