Aaaaaahhh yeah, NAHBS is in full swing and the goodies are already trickling in! Things like new bikes from Alchemy with prototype bits hanging off them, one-off Chris King headset colors, and more! We’re also pushing out sweet new bikes from across the pond with Cory’s pics from the 2017 Berlin Bike Show (like that Rondo Ruut up top).

We also saw two modular chainring and crankset options, with OneUp offering quick switch rings and Miranda making the entire crankset able to be swapped around, piece by piece, to suit any type of riding you want to do.

For mountain bikes, we reviewed the Orbea Occam, a decidedly Euro take on a trail bike, and saw new tires from Maxxis for DH, winter and XC racing.

And for something completely different, we checked out the new LEOMO Type-R motion tracking system, which measures more metrics than ever to help you dial in your fit and performance, and interviewed the founder of Fullsteam Brewery in Durham, NC, for The Build Cycle’s latest podcast!

Tyler, it would be convenient if you tagged the picture montage at the top of the weekly post updates. I saw those LEOMO sensor pods and was curious what they were about. Had to go through a lot of the links before I found it. This has been a problem for many I’m sure.
