On the bike in the picture featuring the rear shock, is that a swiss bicycle insurance sticker on the top tube (white and lila/pinkish sticker)?

From what I found it was designed in the USA, engineered by germans (SEED engineering) because of their experience with composites and then manufactured in asia. Best of everything if you ask me.

hmmm sexy, the choice for a carbon AM just got twice as hard. But why did they name it after their old road bike?

I really don't think they are prototyping a helmet. It's just a showoff for some exhibit in my opinion. There are much much cheaper technologies to do a helmet prototype, that are easier to program, cheaper and faster.
Still impressive what a 5 axis can do! and yes I want one...

Added a product review for Fox Racing Shox 36 Talas 160 RC2 Fit Fork 7/2/2010 1:39 AM

Great at speed..weird travel adjuster

Rating:

The Good: The high speed and low speed compression adjustment works wonders. Got mine with the low speed almost closed and the high speed at 3/4 from full open and it's great! It will fail a "parking lot" test though.

The Bad: My rebound is 2 cliks from full closed position and it works fine, but it's the first fork I've had that needs the rebound to be this closed to fully closed to work. The travel adjustment isn't very reliable. SOmetimes it works sometimes it doesn't. Compression adjustments seem to change when droping the travel.

Overall: Great fork! The Talas system doesn't really need to be there since it doesn't really work. Otherwise at full travel it is great! The axle system is awesome, imo better than maxle and the chassis is super stiff. Got it on a Commencal Meta6 and a a Transition Covert.
