Orange Launches Its New 279 Downhill Bike
The exposed bushings right behind the front wheel gets to me. You used 40 pounds of metal plating and just left a window in the down tube for grit to shoot right to the shock? Why? Why not cover it? For the love of tea and biscuits why???

European Bike Associations Launch Campaign to Reduce Plastic in Industry
Sustainable Frames: BIG bearings for longevity, swappable parts like rear triangles to covert between models, Z56 top and bottom headsets for anglesets and reach adjust, more modifiable frames like geometron to adjust chainstay length as well. Bearings: Chris King style of serviceability. Honestly, CK wins on so many levels. B corp, great culture, local and they build to last through easy repair and quality. Small Parts: Rebuildable drive train parts including derailleurs and shifters. Build the derailleur to take a hit and be repaired. Let the small piece of alu called the derailleur hanger be replaceable and cheap, no anodizing just a raw silver chunk of easy to smelt and reshape alu. - I know this is a thing but derailleurs still are too soft and hard to get back to 100% (at least the new 12 speed). - Same with brakes, small parts like pistons would be nice to rebuild old calipers or new seals for levers. General: Offer repair and build for quality. I am willing to pay more for corporations that are responsible with their manufacturing process and source materials. To be a higher price can reflect the true cost of a product and not just inflation or the profit margins of transnational corporations. The above are good steps, we just need more.

@privateer-wheels: No pigeon holing intended. This guy has a passion and I am excited for his stuff to come out. Good luck Jose! I'm rooting for you!

Except Vesper. The old Onyx classics were bombproof. I ride the shore and the vespers could not handle it. Corrosion, slippage and they ate bearings 14 rides out of the box. If you ride Cali XC go for light weight Vesper but any rider in the PNW should accept the weight penalty and get the classics.

A Fully Silent Hub, a Futuristic Saddle, & More - Taipei Cycle Show 2022
@privateer-wheels: Agreed. From what I hear talking to shops on the North Shore, Jose at Tairin brought some hubs to a select test group who really put the hub through its paces. Driver needed an update, maybe some spinning and premature wear, and Jose did not want to put out a product with flaws. ETA hub now May (probably not) to late summer/fall 2022. New driver sounds similar to Foss. We shall see but this guy is an engineer in the area working out of his garage making exciting products and he is testing and admitting to mistakes/flaws in design and doing his due diligence to have an end product that is functional and durable. I got a chance to see a prototype and for all the amateur mechanics at home this thing looks great. Huge bearing on each side, recessed in hub shell a little more than the new Onyx Vesper or I9, and to access the internals you need one tool. A quarter. Yep, a coin to unscrew the end cap and access the bearings. Take note Chris King, no more proprietary tools. I would love to see companies like WR1 use Tairin in their future wheel builds as part of the 500 mile diet (build?).
