I fix bikes for fun and profit. Sometimes I even ride bikes.

Meet Your Maker: KT Taiwan's Massive Hub Facility - Taipei Cycle Show 2024
Yeah, lots more of this please. Also, this is the best tech feature for a pivot to video. I know that most factories will frown bigly upon that, for obvious reasons. However, if anyone is willing to let you record things in operation, I would love to see it.

Could be a hub for a quad-cycle, handcycle or racing wheelchair. Not sure if those exist in suitable quantities for a dedicated hub forging, but that's my best quess.

Sorry to be a pendant, but I'm pretty sure those are not molds up there in the photos. They are jigs, or fixtures.

Round Up: 13 Bike Industry Jobs Available Right Now
I'd like to petition PB to not publish jobs for which no salary range is provided. Making applicants do all the work before even revealing arguably the most crucial part of any job is disrespectful and cowardly.

Jank Components Releases Steel Idler Pulley, Chain Guides, & Beer Holders
I don't follow the mechanical side of things close enough anymore to know if the idler is a result of a real need for a better part, or just some talented people having fun designing things. Either way, they look sweet and are a fun, clever solution. Those steel SRAM rings last approximately forever, so it'll be neat to see how many the average owner goes through in the life of the idler. Good stuff all around!

Forbidden Announces Details for New Supernought DH Bike
There's a version out there as well with Trent Reznor on vocals instead of Al. It's an early demo for the 1000 Homo DJs project. Since that was a one-off, Al stuck to covering it with Ministry in roughly the same form, and we get to enjoy it to this day. woo!

Spotted: Under the Cover of Specialized's Prototype Downhill Bike
Under current UCI regulations, they should be just fine. Aside from some weird rulings, like "no skinsuits in DH" the UCI generally leaves MTB alone when they want to experiment, which is fine by me.

First Ride: SRAM's New Powertrain Motor
Respectfully, adding a features flow chart to this article as they did over on Vital could go a long way towards helping people understand what's up at a glance. The lack of a standalone display option seems like a weird choice to me, but keeps with the trend of integrating all the things, all the time. At least it is less likely to get janked up in a crash. All-in-all, its an interesting system and we'll see how it holds up against the Bosch and Shimano hegemony. If SRAM does their normal mega-discount OE pricing for brands that buy all-SRAM product family kits on their bikes, I think it'll go quickly beyond the initial four brand offerings.
