Video: Magura Concept Integrates Brake Hoses Into Handlebars for Cable-Free Cockpit
Easy Link looks promising... the rest looks like a bunch of holes and slots where you would least want them.

Schwalbe Magic Mary 2.6" Apex - Review
This is merely an attempt to shift the discussion... If a "nobody" can provide this detail, why can't a reviewer or a marketer? When they want $90 ish msrp for a tire, I want numbers so I can decide for myself. I've never seen anyone share calculated volumes, just nuances of more or less... Based on what?

Schwalbe Magic Mary 2.6" Apex - Review
This review is lacking... maybe even biased. What bike was used? What does the rider weigh? Why would you expect a MM to climb well as a rear? Why not tell us where you started on air pressure? Why not measure the tires with calipers after install? Why not measure the tires after broken in? For myself personally (245 lb rider, I ride in SoCal: steeps, rocks, loose over hard, and just plain dry and loose): I tried these on my Hightower, back to back with 29x2.35 MM, orange compound fronts. I calculated the volume of 29er MM on my 30mm inside rim to be 6.4L. (3D assembly of rim + carcass inside dims) The calculated volume for the 27.5x2.6 on the 36 mm inside is 6.7L. Volume for a 27.5x2.8 Rekon on a 40mm inside is 7.2L for reference. 27.5x2.35 is about 6.2L for reference or you BMX types. The 27.5x2.6 MM measured 2.54" right after installed aired to 35 psi. After a few rides and settling on 18 psi, the broken-in tire measures 2.62" at it's widest point. The 29x2.35 MM measures 2.41" run at 21.5psi. I ran the wimpier sidewall Rekons at 19 psi (27.5x2.8 on 40mm inside rims). Actual weight of my 2.6 MM was 1021g. Actual weight of my 29x2.35 was 894g. Installed on wheel weights with sealant, ready to ride: 27.5x2.6 = 2120g, 29x2.35 = 2090g Also for reference, the tread block height on the 2.6 is 5.5mm after break-in, where the 29er was at 4mm after half a season. I don't have a out of box measurement on the 29er, but they seem to be a shorter block. Initial impression (7, 2.5 hour rides): For me, the 2.6 pros: -offers better breaking traction on steeps -better cornering potential once fully leaned over -smoother over rough terrain -less vagueness than a 2.8 -better "float" in very loose situations where you would normally dig in 2.6 cons: -it seems more sensitive to mid corner rocks and roots dragging you off line -doesn't "cut" into a berm as well as the 29x2.35 -not quite as precise as 29x2.35 -not as much corner entry "confidence" aka vague on initial tip in -for my area, the Apex adds weight where Snakeskin was fine before

Who Won The Push Industries Pimp My Bike?
Congrats winner! Weren't we supposed to guess what the new product is? It appears to be a telescoping chamber with adjustment knobs at both ends. ...custom valved fork damper upgrades anyone?
