All things 29'er!!!! Reynolds carbon wheels. Enve (Edge) Composites new UST (or at least tubeless ready). Any other uber light yet super stout products.
I'd like to see some nice steel hardtails. And some ALT bar designs.
maybe the CST tire line.

I would like to see pics of the new Turner 5-Spot and any charges to the Flux. I would also like to see any changes in the Ventana line up.
+1 and add the Sultan to that list. Someone take the wraps off the new Turner frames!

Info from SRAM in regards to 10 speed grip shifters....
You'll find the topic is big in the WW and SRAM boards...
Obviously tires and rims/wheels, but more importantly, compatible forks.
When is the X-fusion Velvet available?
Will the new White Bros be either 650b compatible (officially) or have a 650b version?
Will the new Manitou lowers be ok'd for 650b - officially? (they made revisions that highlighted increased clearance.)
Oh...I second the call for 2x10 grip shift.

I REALLY want to see the new SixSixOne protective gear lineup. I destroyed my ribs in May, and just after I got back on the bike, I wrecked again and separated my shoulder (grade 3). I'll be able to ride in a month or so, and I needs some protections!!
The Turner DHR sould be sweet too.
tangaroo: What electrolytes do chicken and turkey have again?
rck18: All of them, because they're meat.
I am interested in finding about the new Hutchison "flat free"mountain bike tires.
Everything at the Fairwheel bikes booth!
Slowly slipping to retrogrouchyness
Kenda Nevigals in a 2.5 ust version hopefully.
Gregg, this list is gonna give you a headache if you don't have a beer in hand.
These are things I have already picked up on that customers are looking for/at.
Newest developments in armor and protection (pads, suits, gloves, helmets, etc.).
Newest Rack and Transport stuff for the new vehicles on the market.
Has Garmin made a nicer 90 degree mount you can use that doesn't drop your GPS on the first medium drop and roll off into who knows where land?
Newest mapping sites, downloads, companies doing what, etc.
Newest video sites, downloads, companies doing what, etc.
How about better info on the WTB Bronsons?
Crossmarks or Advantage in UST 2.25-2.35's yet??
New developments if any as far as what a wheel builder would use..
It's like we're a dying breed or something.
Show us who's doing what with what rims.
What DT Swiss and Wheelsmith are up to if anything.
I'm sure this is a simple topic in a way, but with all the bling out there with factory wheels the last 6 years wheelbuilding's taken a backseat and a lot of consumers forget what a skilled hand can build. (*The commuter movement's saving us though!)
*What tire companies are doing to address sealing issues on UST, or whatever they're trying to call their not quite UST stuff. The benefits, the sacrifices, etc.
**Yes, 7 speed gearing-10 speed shifting.
**Yes, steel bikes..production anybody??
**White Brother's new fork.
Housing liner supplier to deal with all the infernal-cable-routing the industry and handmade market's gone to.
Oh, wait, handmade's actually have a sleeve and it directs the cable..
Hello Big Companies?? Seriously, it's like the market's on hold for the stuff we used to get with Klein Builds.
Who else is making carbon-cork road pads now that Trek is giving notice you have to use cork pads only on their top carbon rims, same for another company.
Internal drivetrains and internal drive cranksets.
Newest stuff as far as steel tubing.
Newest stuff as far as Ti.
Newest stuff as far as aluminum.
No, I don't want any carbon info..the reps give us enough of that.
I'll buy you the beer if you don't have one..pm me when you're back in town.
