RockShox Announce New Super Deluxe Coil
For all the stupid "standards" we've seen the bike industry adopt over the past few years, Metric shock sizing is one which actually makes a whole lot of sense.

AVS Racing Handguards - Review
If you drop all the fashion out of it, they make sense for a number of riders out there. I won't ever use them- I don't feel like the problems these prevent are much of an issue for me (nor do I race), but if they were, it seems like a good idea. The price though... woof.

Pinkbike Poll: Which Major Component is the Least Evolved Part of a Mountain Bike?
It's unlikely gearboxes will ever be efficient, or as light, relative to derailleur systems, based on the nature in which each works. Even if there's advances in materials which allow gearboxes to become lighter- those same advances will likely apply to the "old standard" as well. So as long as keeping the weight down on bikes, and making them mechanically efficient are more important than reducing maintenance in MTB- gearboxes aren't going to catch on. Unless, of course, there's a radical change in how gearboxes work.

Di2... Obviously everyone who's voted for drive trains has never used/seen one.

Sick bike dude. I've got a FTW Shenanigan, and I've thought about getting rid of it several times- but I just can't. Cheers, and good luck finding a good home for 'er.
