13 Bikes That Could See An Update In 2023
Next years Santa Cruz V11 ad. Well, your bike's on 10, your rider's on 10- all the way up, all the way up, where do you go from there? Nowhere. What we do is when you need that extra push, over the cliff, 11. So is the V11 faster? Its 1 faster init. Could you just make the V10 a little faster? This one goes to 11.

Spotted: A New Rocky Mountain Slayer for 2023?
@brianpark: I used to design cars. We'd put all kinds of time into camouflaging prototypes. Everything from the paint scheme to lots of tape to change head/tail light shapes to even more fun. There are people who make their living by taking spy photos of cars.

Field Test: 2022 Intense Tracer S - Energy & Speed
I'm light so I'd be willing to bet it's oversprung for me. I know with motocross bikes I almost always had to change spring rates. Could the high progression/ not using all the travel be from a spring rate that's too high?

Allied Cycle Works Debuts Domestic Carbon Mountain Bike
I want to want one of these, but I don't. As an industrial designer I just see a pretty good design concept with really weak form execution. With some love, it could be really nice. As it is now, not so much.

Fox Sues SRAM Over Fork Bleed Valves
@badbadleroybrown: Maybe. Most corporate counsel is not specialized in patent law. Every patent Ive been involved with was written by patent attorneys who are indeed on retainer. Corporate counsel typically reviews them for sure and would be made aware of possible infringement. I would bet that Sram is going to at least claim prior art.

Canyon's Sustainable 3D Printed Prototype Mountain Bike
@mjcutri: Laser sintered parts like this are more similar to a casting. One thing about designing like this is that it's easy to put material where the stress is so there is a lot of potential. It opens up a lot of possibilities when tooling consideration is no longer a part of the design process. What Canyon missed communicating clearly is that the most potentially sustainable part of this is in reducing the shipping. At some point, its reasonable to assume that putting the 3d printers closer to the final destination is going to happen, so this is a cool experiment. Everything that is shipped from Asia to Europe or North America is inherently wasteful, especially when often the raw materials are shipped there first.

Industry Digest: Ellsworth's New Owners, Shimano Shuts Down Fake Website & 2022 Predictions
Walt, you're not an old fart, you're still a youg'un. You do remember correctly that Ellsworth was known for being an dick as well as for his unreliable frames. Agreed that any ip they have wothless, but at least their brand name is negative.

First Ride: The 2022 Ibis Exie is Made in USA & Ready to Race
@HB208: Not just housing prices, California also has insane taxes and silly regulations. I'd like one, but the cost bump will make it hard to justify.
