Video: Magura Concept Integrates Brake Hoses Into Handlebars for Cable-Free Cockpit
"design language of the frame"?!?! If you have to use a bullsh!t term like that to describe your product, it is probably because the product is also bullsh!t. This is the most complicated solution to a non-existent problem that I've seen since the Rollie Eggmaster.

Caminade Shows Off Prototype Titanium Enduro Bike
So considering the fact that this thing: likely pedals like you're in deep sand, will slowly and painfully eat your left calf as you ride, has a seat tube angle that will wear out dropper post bushings just for fun, has rear shock mounts using a weak single shear design for no reason, and incorporates all those terrible ideas into the high price of titanium... can we just say that this is a dumb bike? Thank you next.

Caminade Shows Off Prototype Titanium Enduro Bike
Agreed. I'd be nervous that if I bottomed this thing out a few times one of those shock mounts would bend or break off.

Full Video Highlights: Whip Off - Crankworx Innsbruck 2018
@natedh9: Are you saying that this video must be good simply because it was made by good videographers? Maybe you are one of those people that would buy a turd if it had a Chris King logo on it... Once in a while an amateur can make something amazing and once in a while a pro can make a piece of crap, and sadly this was one of those times. This video sucked. No amount of picture quality or production value can make up for a complete lack of content.

Archer Components' Wireless Electronic D1x Shifter - Review
@atrokz: Everything you say is BS. This is a bicycle shifting system, not a flight control system that requires redundancies with a high level of reliability. A system that controls the rear derailleur of a MTB clearly has different functional requirements and different priorities than aerospace controls. You're just a bad engineer because you are clearly making the biggest rookie engineering mistake of all, which is trying to design a product or system without FIRST understanding the actual requirements and priorities of that system. Not everything in this world has the same requirements as the projects that you've worked on, and your career has clearly pigeon-holed your thought process, or maybe you've always just been a narrow-minded person... Just this industy? You're so wrong. My TV has a wireless remote despite that I always control it from within the same room. My computer has a wirelss keyboard and mouse despite that they sit only 2 feet from the computer tower. My household internet is entirely wireless despite that I never am more than 30 feet from my modem. My phone connects to my car stereo via bluetooth even though I always set my phone in the center console only 1 foot from the car's stereo. My home security cameras are wireless even though they are bolted to the same structure (my house) as the central hub. People have been making wireless systems for decades for the purpose of convenience and neatness, and while wireless systemes are generally less reliable, reliability isn't always the highest priority for a product... Sit down

Archer Components' Wireless Electronic D1x Shifter - Review
@atrokz: Whoa, calm down you self-absorbed psychopath. You're right about one thing, TiN is a ceramic, not a metal, I mispoke. While you didn't specifically mention tensile strength, the micro fractures that you've brought up twice now would be a POSSIBLE negative effect of a TiN deposition process that would most notably effect the chain's final tensile strength. I didn't completely draw out that thought process in my earlier comment because I thought such an excellent engineer as yourself would be able to connect those dots. What you're definitely wrong about is how your initial sarcastic comment regarding TiN coatings on chains clearly implied the blanket notion that using a TiN coating on a chain will always make it inferior due to manufacturing process side effects. That is just not true... I'm amazed how clearly one the world's (or maybe just Canada's, lol) "greatest miliary manufacturing engineers" has so much free time to make comments on Pinkbike, that in the end probably won't matter at all.

@atrokz: You clearly don't know what you're talking about and are just trying to regurgitate some BS that someone else told you. 1st, it is deposition, not disposition; you deposit the metal coating. 2nd, every manufacturing process has its pros and cons and can be done correctly on not. TiN coatings are about improving surface hardness, not tensile strength. A TiN coating on a chain can be an improvement if done correctly, depending on the end goals.

Here's a Better Look at the Prototype GT Downhill Bike - Windrock Pro GRT
@TheStabbyCyclist: Whooo, the gentlemen from Washington knows that it means "with". You sir receive the distinction of "summa cum laude" for the day. The rest of you need to stop acting like a bunch of nuts. This is a polite website, we can't just talk like a bunch of seamen. We have to make well thought-out comments, not just ejaculate the first thoughts that comes to mind. If you can't be polite on this site then you should just get off... Alright, I believe this comment has reached its climax, I'm finished.
