This week was a big ol’ mix of random stuff, including new bits and pieces for training, bike setup and more. Starting with the new What’s My FTP app for Garmin, which makes figuring your function threshold power very easy, to a new saddle fit kit from Abbey Tool, to the (thankfully) updated ENVE SES Aero Handlebar. And plenty more.

For bikes, there’s a new BH G7 Pro road bike and Speedvagen Team Issue Cyclocross Bike worth a look. And Specialized not only launched their new Turbo Levo Carbon FSR, but we also took a three-part look at their concept bike museum! check out Fast Bikes, Fun Bikes and Moto Bikes to see where their designs may be headed in the future!

Our weekly Suspension Tech series rounded up answers from the people behind Manitou, Rockshox and DVO to explain cavitation and why it’s bad for your suspension…and how they design their forks and shocks to prevent it.

We’ve even added a bit of newness to this weekend recap – click past the break and you’ll see that everything’s been categorized for quicker reading!
