2016 SR Suntour Durolux R2C2 enduro mountain bike suspension fork tech details Italian Trash-3

We had some fantastic items come across our desk this week as well as some meaningful fundraisers for a couple of pretty awesome guys that need our help. From the best looking, as well as the strangest looking e-bikes from Italjet and Gi FlyBike, new fork and technology from Suntour, what Canfield Bros just whipped up, and a glimpse at Boeing’s new “lightest materiel” which could make its way down to our more grounded needs.

Take a step back in time to take a gander at what we brought you last week, because if my calculations are correct, you’re about to see some serious sh……

  1. Lots of great stuff here Thx.

    Except……..for the e-bike…..

    I’ve come to the conclusion that bikerumor (not motorcyclerumor) is getting kickback$$$$ from the e-bike industry.

    Why else would you continue to polute your wonderful site with such nonsense. Motorized a bike and it’s not a bike anymore. Moped, ebike, motorcycle…..all the same.

    Other than that a big thank you for covering bike related stuff and all your hard work.

  2. @ Pipo, it’s the 9th one down. It’s about Moot’s effort, (which sold out later the same day we posted about it!).

    @ascarlarkinyar – Thank’s for the props and reading the Rumor! I hear you and know there are a vast number of perspectives on e-bikes and where they fit in. There is no “e-bike” industry to speak of as they come primarily from bicycle based companies as well as a couple of independents and are all sold though bicycle retail outlets or direct. Even the old crusty vets in our industry say there is a place for them….. there are just a lot of questions as to where, and only time will tell.
