Cool-beans goods from the Taipei show!

Randomly stolen from a French site that I can't read; but the pics can speak for themselves:

RST in woodgrain:



Your next chain, Dannihilator?




Whoa - - a dual-disc hub?

So...who's making the dual disc fork to mate up to the hub?

Duh! It's a flip-flip wheel. I know I burn through discs on my gnartastic downhill runs and always wished I had a spare.

I wonder if I still have that old issue of Rod & Custom that shows how to do that? Think I might try bringing back airbrushed murals instead, though

Wood grain with the word "Space" on it just seems contradictory.

I was just talking about dual disc. Since yamaha seems to do dual disc on all there bikes (at least sport bike idk about anything else) I kinda figured it would leak to mtn bikes eventually. Not that it necassary but still kinda cool
