It will be good to see Shimano coming back into the OEM game with the 12 speed SLX. In things that probably don't make business sense, I'd love to see a carbon HT 29er with middle of the road geometry. Something to compete with the the SC Chameleon. There just aren't many options in that space.
And I'd put in another vote for bringing back the Atlas - and I'd do what everyone else is doing and have a race and trail version
