    I wonder what the 2009 XTR and Dura-Ace improvements will be.

    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

    shameless POWERCRANK plug
    Recommended reading for all cyclists - Cyclecraft - Effective Cycling
    Condor Cycles - quite possibly the best bike shop in London
    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!
