Formula CTS Technology – New Approach to Fork Tuning
So it does not change the basic behavior of the system It ads a modulator or another and basically does a lot less than changing tirepressure.

Do Wheels Need to Cost So Much? – Interview – Sea Otter 2017
The article is a try to price a "cheap" carbon wheelset at 1200$. This 3x times more than a a quality aluset. At the same time limiting choices in axlewidth when the cheap aluwheel comes with spacers.And I don't like Trek/Bontrager.

Spot's New 29er Has a Carbon Fiber Leaf Spring – Sea Otter 2017
@silverfox101010: Oh, I had an Elise, best handling car there is. Corvette is bulkier but a very good handling car too. Its really way better than most euro cars. Had ample leafspring cars and trucks and two of my daily drivers are leafsprung and most were just fine. Now if you go to 600hp or more you want a rigid axle and 5 link. If you go IRS...you just bought yourself a garage beauty because little things will bend, go out of alignment and give off crunchy noise before separating from the car. I design leafsprings occasionally. Its an excellent way to spring things.

Atomik Debuts New Technologies in Carbon Wheelsets
Foamcore does nothing in this application except dampening a noisy carbon wheel and maybe cheapen manufacturing. If you were to link the crossection with a honeycomb mesh...ah nah...why bother. Alurims still better.

Spot's New 29er Has a Carbon Fiber Leaf Spring – Sea Otter 2017
@WAKIdesigns: Leafsprings are amazing. Very underrated engineering field, especially when combined with friction- or wet-lever-dampers. In many ways better than the telescopic spring/damper systems used in bikes and cheap cars. And they can be made low maintenance or maintenance-free.

BOS Returns With the Deville 35 - First Ride
Most people are underforked. Fork companies sell through lightweight claims. Bos has to play that game too. It turns a practically maintenance free item into a warranty and service nightmare. Keep those things simple and sturdy and half a pound heavier.
