Shimano Announces 4-Piston XT Brake Caliper
M820 .. they've always been there. ;) I've run Saints on my DH and trail bikes for a few years. I prefer the feel of the 4-piston shimano brake; better modulation, and tons of power. Shimano is going to sell a million of these.

Mavic Deemax - Return of the King?
@lifted-d: My experience is opposite. I've used King hubs forever and do a simple yearly cleaning and lubing, taking maybe an hour. I had one set for easily 13-14 years that are still going strong on a friend's bike. King rear hubs are on every one of my bikes. IMO they're bulletproof.

From the Top: David Turner
Bought my first Turner in 2002, and old school RFX. Rode that frame for 12 years without issue, and without being outdated or outclassed. Over that time I watched many companies release frames with misaligned pivots & crooked frames, poor quality, or worse, then fight with their customers over corrections and warranties. I own two Turners now. People use the term 'fanboy' like it's an insult. DT runs his business in a way that creates that loyalty.
