I'd like to see:

Powercranks (no, not srm power meters) that are compatible with external BBs

More gearbox bikes (gboxx, suntour gearbox or home grown stuff)

More quality internal gear hubs (rohloff and nuvinci) and hopefully less crap ones that die after ~1 year (shamino and stormey belcher, that's you)

more non-chain based drive sysyems (carbondrive)

more non diamond frame bikes (Trimble MTB)

More gas sprung and damped shocks (no, I don't mean crappy air, air/oil or similar) like they use in battle tanks

more cheap composite multi spoke wheels that aren't flexy, badly made, unaerodynamic bricks

more lean to steer recumbents

more low cost, high quality, low racer recumbents (toxy zr - compared to the velokraft nocom that is)

a new clamp design on dropper seat posts that doesn't move or snap so easily as the current ones

further trickle down of sidi's srs technology to cheaper shoes
