    Some real innovation?

    Bit of noise today with the wonderful news of the new that is not new but old but wait it is still new 157 hub. Just to compensate here something that looks like a bit more seriously innovative: Robot Bike | Robot Bike new frame including "Laser Powder Bed Fusion Additive Manufacturing" for the Titanium lugs (sort of "3D printing"), very fancy carbon tubes, and the latest Dave Weagle suspension design. Bit expensive though .... £4395.00 for a costum frame

    no worries, I'm sure if you look hard enough you'll find something to complain about. Some people always do.

    I hope so, the idea of an easily customisable FS bike is very cool, bring on cheaper 3d Ti printing!!

    I'd love to see a gif of that suspension cycling through it's range of movement, it looks very interesting...

    Imagine that marketed as a kit of fittings and tubes that you trim to desired lengths and glue together.
    Use it, use it, use it while you still have it.

    Unfortunately not! But you can get +Hyper Boost+ 160 based on the Tandem standard

    Jokes to the side, they do say "New hub standard? Change it with CAD. New headtube standard? Change it with CAD" .. not sure what happens to the glue but there you go: insurance against changing standards forever!

    Anyway, the way the fittings are grown is somewhat like magic:
