I've been lucky so far. Worst was an over excited security agent in Beijing dropping my fisheye on the tile floor where its lens cover popped off and scared everyone in line. No damage though. As for gear getting broken or stolen while actually working, it was a rough year for Sven. Definitely buy that man a beer if you see him.

You all raise good points, and I'll be the first to admit that fear of the unknown is a big contributor to my own skepticism. However, one thing to keep in mind is that this is first and foremost a show for the Asian cycling market. That means dozens upon dozens of commuter bikes, folding bikes, micro bikes, and most recently electric bikes. Many of which will never leave this side of the planet but will be purchased in huge numbers in cities across Asia.

Keep in mind, many of these frames are designed to showcase the factory's manufacturing capabilities. They aren't necessarily meant to be ready-for-market bikes. That's a whole separate process involving the customer, their engineers, and the manufacturing engineers at the factory.

I'm going to hazard a guess that the average person who buys these is worried more about form than function.

I've used them both, but for everyday riding the Flows are a bit lighter and less bulky. I've regularly had them on for 12 hour stretches with no problem.

Lots of the local riders here in Taipei have had them for a while, so I can't imagine it will be too long before they start to show up elsewhere. It feels quite similar to the Vengeance fork if you've ever had a chance to ride one (which similarly could benefit from a touch more mid-stroke support at times).

Was wondering when that new Devinci would be let out of the bag...

I'm giving the UCI a break now that it's under new management. obviously a change in culture won't happen overnight, but replacing the old guard was certainly a positive first step. As for UCI being involved in Enduro it does mean they are at least paying attention to what is popular rather than trying to invent doomed-to-fail disciplines like XC eliminator. Personally I'd love to see guys like Graves and Clementz have the chance to wear a rainbow jersey, but that only comes with the blessing of the UCI.
