    The Taipei show has some weird stuff. More images here: http://www.transcendmagazine.com/gallery/taipei08

    Truvativ is paying homage to their man in charge of the black box program...

    I give to you, the Boobar.


    Someone put this bike together upside down. Perfect to crunch the boys in.

    Is that a rockshox own upper boxxer crown or another manufacturers?

    If its another manufacturers anybody know who's making them?

    Transcend, any ideas?

    The RST R1 crown also looks like it has the Marzocchi holes as well for those stems.

    looking for classic NE singletrack
    :barf: I've seen that "no-pinch-bolt 20mm axle" RST for the last 2 years now, and it STILL looks dumb (and no, that's not a set screw hole, either).

    edit - I'd kill for a 9sp road cassette in the Red configuration though....

    I never thought it could happen, Diamondback has the best looking and most interesting product there.

    That bike's been a favorite of mine for a while now. Should be available this month, but only in Europe, and pretty spendy too.

    I'd be happy with either an 8 or 9 speed too, but not as much as my bikey would be.

    Transcend, you see the new derailleurs by Microshift? Look decent. Have some coming to play with... :)

    Yeah, it looks like there is another shock buried in front of the BB?

    That's the first Corsair Crown prototype. Yep, that's a blowoff shock mounted in front of the BB.

    once the bigger shock is compressed, it acts as a top linkage. the bike goes from a single pivot to a virual pivot point bike. quite a nice idea. and it looks pretty flashy too.
