This week, it’s a good split between road and mountain bikes. The new Moots shows off how integrated titanium bikes can be, and BMC’s not far behind with their new e-road bike, and Esker just adds mounts for everything on their new ti gravel bike. For MTB, there’s a new Yeti XC bike and Marin trail bike, and unbelievably light grips. Plus LOTS of fun industry news in the Small Bites section!
This week we’ve got two killer new mountain bikes from Scott and Orbea, some radical gravel bikes from YT and Rodeo Labs (plus a really light gravel bar from Cadex), and a very random assortment of weirdness, reboots, artist collabs, prototypes, and e-bikes worth a look.
This closeup look at the SRAM Eagle direct-mount derailleur and new Eagle SL cassette shows off some interesting (and confusing) features. There’s also a new one-piece Quarq power meter chainring for mountain bikes, which could be the secret to Flat Top chain compatibility on mountain bikes.
