    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Mtbr Interbike request - thanks for the suggestions

    Hey Everyone,

    Mtbr.com will be at Interbike with a pretty big crew this year. We’ve got a lot of exciting stuff planned, including the featured coverage we provide with our Virtual TradeShow Booths, which include video, too.


    <b>In addition, we like to take suggestions and requests from you, the online mountain biking community, on what YOU would like to see from the show.</b>

    There’s plenty of exciting new stuff coming out…

    <b>What rumors have YOU heard?</b> What do you want us to take photos and/or videos of? (besides booth babes, of course!)

    Thanks,

    -gregg, francis, forrest, john and the Mtbr crew

    As controversial as the discussion always turns on e-bikes, I would like to see some coverage of Cannondale and Scott's new e-bike collaboration with Bosch.

    illnacord and TORO1968...any particular brands? Specific requests are actually easier to work with than broad general interest categories.

    e-bikes controversial? For mountain bikers, definitely. For roadies and commuters, not so much. There is definitely a lot of fear of couch potatoes hittin' the e-throttle and crowding our trails, but I think this fear is mostly unfounded. And then, of course, there is the land usage, motorized vehicles rules and laws issue. But we will cover e-bikes for sure.

    Pivot Cycles, SE, Hayes....check, check and check.

    Good suggestions, guys, keep 'em coming.

    Niner, and noted changes in the 2011 lineup, like possibly headsets, or head tube angles being more slack for their Trail / AM versions.

    Good idea. Dave Weins will be there. Most of the Kenda Legends tire guys should be around. Lots of current riders

    700x2.0 tubular (sew up) tires, and "29er" wide aluminum tubular rims. I'm interested in both knobbies, CX tread patterns, and road/all-rounder tread patterns.

    Monstercrossers that are: 700x2.1 capable, non-suspension corrected, disc braked.

    A seatpost that is cheaper than Ti and lighter than a Thudbuster, and somewhere between the two in cush (seems like something that already exists perhaps?).

    Drop-bar hydraulic brake levers. I'm interested in cable-actuated remote master cylinders, integrated STI type levers, or even mods to mountain levers for use on 23.8 bars.

    3-piece mountain crankset that would work with BB30 or press fit or whatever the new oversize standard is. Anyhows, I specifically want 3-piece, with the idea that using spacers and different spindles, we could have a modern crank with an adjustable Q factor.

    Any other novel way of having an adjustable-Q crank. Maybe something at the pedal end instead of at the spindle end?

    Any novel ways of treating the BB shell/chainstay/tire/front derailleur area, where clearances are often tight.

    Cheaper or lighter Rohloff. Alfine 11 speed, mountain dyno hubs. etc.

    Any interesting front-end geometry 29ers.

    5,6, or 7 speed cassettes (either 9 or 10 speed spacing) for use on single-speed cassette hubs.

    Good, streetable gore-tex SPD shoes. I'd love a stiffer-soled, gore-tex, Adidas Samba.

    Any floor bike with bar-ends. Just for the hell of it! But really, I think bar-ends have their place, and no, not just on Kmart bikes with grocery bags full of cans hung off them.

    Fractured/shattered radial head four weeks ago. I've got clearance for some easy rides now, but two eight-hour days at bootleg probably isn't what the doc had in mind.

    Besides, I'm still trying to catch up at work for the week I missed right after the injury.

    Have fun guys.

    +1 -- this would be simple for any of the drive train component manufacturers to do, and there's certain some demand for it (according to this site anyway).

    C'mon lucky 7s!!! Hell, maybe some outfit based in Vegas can make and call 'em that: Lucky Seven Cassettes.

    KRob,

    I'm sorry to hear of your injury and I, too, will miss the wondeful reviews you've produced for some years now. I broke my femur at Northstar Bike Park in August of 2009 so my heart goes out to you. I wish a you quick and complete recovery from your injury!

    Take care,

    Michael

    UCI's decision to allow disc brakes on cross bikes bears fruit:

    650b

    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.

    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.

    WTB Booth..

    How about better info on the WTB Bronsons?

    Maxxis Booth..

    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.

    Mavic..

    Sun..

    Stan..

    Etc..

    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.
