Mojo Man- outdated outboard BB bearings- I run Octalink- now thats outdated!

Bradley- I will get engineering working on the auto saddle which will be tied into GPS conrtol with gyroscope. They are also specing that the saddle shape/firmness will adjust to the riders backside. Not only will tire pressure change, but also tire width. Tires will also be self repairing in case of flats. Mud or other dirt does not stick to the bike frame or tires so bike looks factory clean all the time.
If you grab another bike all your information will transfer to the new bike. It is stored in the large chip that is implanted in brain by dealer at time of sale.
The constant headaches are a small price to pay for the latest technology

Mommy- theres a root on the trail! Make it go away! I want my Binkie

I'm selling off everything I own and getting 650B's, but I'm waiting for the 3 x 25 drivetrains to come out. if 10 is good, 11 must be better and 25 will rock! If will feature carbon fiber belt drive, on the fly air adjustments for wheels and shocks and shifting will be computer controlled via a gps system. Frame and wheels with a 250mm travel fork will weigh just under 5 lbs.
Cost will be $40,000 but it's worth it-pre order now!

Can we add an automatic saddle height adjustment? When the bike is pointed downhill the seat drops & when the bike is pointed uphill it raises to normal X/C height? That would work well with the on the fly tire pressure changes. :lol:

Long Live the Fest!!

In all seriousness count me out, I like my non carbon SS hard tail with the outdated 1 1/8” fork tube, outdated quick change skewers, outdated outboard BB bearings and outdated 1" diameter spindle crankset just fine.

Oh, I almost forgot, the now new, out dated 29’r size wheels.

Maybe it's just because being 51, I'm outdated myself.


Mojo :D

What are the advantages of riding a mountain bike anyway?
Staying at home, lying on the couch is much more comfortable

Type II Roller Clutch!!!
A lever that moves the shifty bits outta the way for wheel changes!!!!!!!
Tiny four bolt spider!
Dedicated (ie 'super special') chain and shifter! Forget about being saddled with old 10 speed bits.
The question that most riders will ask after riding XX1 will be, “Why has it taken so long for the industry to figure this out?”
Whoooo whee. I wonder how much cost that Type II Roller Clutch!!! adds to the pricetag. There's more levers and buttons on that shifty thing than a B58 Hustler.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
