    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.


    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.

    There’s plenty of exciting new stuff coming out…

    What rumors have YOU heard? 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.

    I wanna see some stuff from One Ghost Industries and their new component line Candy Components. I read good things, but haven't seen much outside of the bikes at MSC races.

    Skinny cassettes for SS hubs

    +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.

    Good job! Thanks for Asking!

    Hi Mtbr.com Folks,

    I'd love to see info on:

    1) Bionicon Tesla
    2) Canfield One
    3) FlyPaper Pedals or any other super thin pedal
    4) Lighter version of Hammerschmidt or any viable replacement to current drivetrain system

    Thanks for the work that you do!

    Michael
