Typically designed for high pressure or high volume, the latest crop of tires push high volume to the extreme. Adding to the few fat bike hand pump concepts we’ve seen recently, Lezyne unveiled their new Micro Floor Drive XL in Taipei.

Over the last week we’ve brought you lots of goodies from last weekend’s NAHBS. Tyler and Anna each took their own ways of digging through the shows and we’ve still got plenty more on the way. At the same time Cory just updated us on his time riding volcanoes with a pre-production all-mountain crank from Vyro that shifts with no front derailleur required. Then by the middle of the week both Zach and Trey we in Taipei digging up some great new tech there too, maybe the biggest of which was an electronic mountain bike group from Microshift that seemed to come out of the blue. Oh yeah, and a spy shot that may be the next Dura-Ace Di2!

It was an eventful week and there are plenty of new bits and pieces to see, plus of course a slew of one-of-a-kind show bikes, below the fold…

TPE16: Exclusive first look at HT’s new M1 XC Pedal plus updated AE03 Flats

Use P1100237

We had yet to hear about anything in the pipeline, but with the introduction of HT’s T1 Trail/Enduro pedal, the suspicions were high about them coming out with an XC pedal. While visiting their anodized-colored filled booth today, I asked if there was an XC pedal coming out soon… “We’ll have one at Sea Otter”, (April). I asked for a sneak peak, and after a little gleeful staring, “TC” stepped into the closet and came out with this blue puppy.

Check out the New HT M1 pedal and specs as well as some welcome updates to their AE03 flat pedal…

Wet and gnarly trails call for new Maxxis Forekaster 29er mountain bike tire

maxxis forekaster michelin power challenge tubular vittoria graphene tires

As a little tease of what’s promised to be a number of new tires to come, Maxxis was showing their new Forekaster at Frostbike. If you were paying close attention, you might have spotted a prototype hidden in plain sight at CX nationals. And for good reason – the wet, icy in spots, and loose trails around Asheville are right up the Forekaster’s alley. Only offered for the moment in 29, if you are looking for something a bit more aggressive from Maxxis this could be it…

Best Videos of the week: Emily Batty Ep. 3, the smallest wheels on the trail(?), & an extreme utility bike

This week we found Scott / SR Suntour Enduro Team member Rémy Absalon playing in the snow aboard his Scott Genius LT700. We continue on with part 3 of “Ambitions” where Emily Batty shows us that even the best riders can have the silliest of crashes and the importance of being involved with the community.

For those of you worried about e-bikes roosting your local trails, there may be another new “multi-wheeled” population you need to keep your eye on. Plus a Xtracycle getting taken to the next level in “Music meets Mobility” further proving a bicycle can be used in more ways than ever before and a bike you won’t believe until you see it…

Not only are we bringing you previews of NAHBS, Tyler and Anna are there now! They got there yesterday and were sneaking around the halls trying to get a few glimpses and and words before it got too crazy. In what is expecting to be a record event, what we’ve seen so far will surely not disappoint.

Also Zach is at Frostbike where they’ve released the much talked about All-City Log Lady, and today Heller’s new carbon 27.5+ Shagamaw… with a new fork from Manitou! We also finally get to see SRAM’s XC version of their highly revered Guide brakes with the new Levels and the titanium, Pinion gearbox hardtail from Domahidy that he teased us about.
