    The new L2 and L3 remotes sit underneath the handlebar on the left. The L2 operates fork-and-shock simultaneously. The L3 operates dropper seatposts.

    Is it April 1st? That surely can’t be real! As others, my I can feel blood coming out of my knee just looking at that!

    This being the most optimistic interface possible in an OTB

    Bye bye kneecap…

    Looks like something that can only go wrong in the heat of the moment or panic hitting.

    To all the people bemoaning the integration of stuff, via internal routing or electronics, I present ‘Exhibit A’

    Hope you’re happy.

    Its a problem that needs solving, but I’m not sure they’ve managed to do so here.

    Looks like it’d break if you shouted at it.

    Twistloc + normal dropper lever still the best approach IMO.

    I think the idea is that the mounting bolt will sheer if you try and impale yourself on it otherwise it’s more than strong enough for normal use with your thumb.

    Alternative to the Scott Twinlock I guess. Looks ridiculous to me personally, but I am not the intended market.

    Oh dear. So many things to press at the same time when under pressure. What could possibly go wrong?

    Why does it need 3 levers? In what works does anyone want to drop their post at the same time as lock suspension?
    Surely a “double tap” lever with a clear detent would be better such that half a push locks the suspension, a full one locks and raises the post. (Possibly a finger/thumb trigger to release the lock on the suspension, you know, like a left mounted shifter almost.)

    Can’t be that many folk who have dt fork and shock, add in the xc nature and it’s not a huge market, good option for those who buy dt suspension though, or manufacturers who spec them

    If it looks right it is right. This is not one of those moments.

    How many of you impale your knee on your RH shifter?

    How many of you impale your knee on your RH shifter?

    How many people have a RH shifter under their RH shifter, then another RH shifter under that?

    That would be 6 levers.

    Is the mtb industry having an inside bet to see who can sell us the dumbest peice of overengineered unnecessary nonsense or what??

    Jeez that’s a bit much. I have the Scott twinlock/dropper just like in the picture above though and it’s very handy. So a good idea in principle, just badly executed.

    The old single speeder in me thinks all is lost… humanity has tipped over the edge… and it’s not even a shifter.

    Is there a training course before you can use it?

    Afraid to admit that every bike I’ve ever owned I’ve managed to skelp my knees on the shifters/brake set-up at some point – either trying to climb something stupidly steep and getting it very wrong (when I say climb something it generally stops a bike length up the climb so that isn’t entirely accurate; or stupid crashes…

    Imagine being the product designer being briefed.
    “We want this to look as slick as possible.”
    “Oh do you indeed. No Red Dot award for me this year then. And, are you sure you want your logo on there?”

    I think I agree. The BMC solution from a few years back was the best (of the non electronic solutions)

    Still waiting to see what Suntour had on Pidcock’s Tokyo bike.
