North American Handmade Bicycle Show 2019
I was amazed at the number of wood and bamboo bikes at the show. I was surprised that many of them have carbon or aluminum "core structures". My favorite bike of the show was a gravel ride from Mooro. It had the most beautiful paint job I've seen since Mountain Goat's customs. I also noted a lot frames also featured frame pump fittings. A featured that disappeared with CO2 cylinders, but I am glad to see are returning for road, gravel, and adventure bikes.

The Explainer: What's the Deal with Linkage Forks?
Lauf and Trust are breaking old ground with new plows. Cool factor seems to negate costs. If either brand built equally functional forks with lower-cost aluminum or steel, we might see these products on bikes more available to the general public. But, although my unobtainium bike would be the DW-designed Esker with Trust forks, eWing cranks, and XTR 12-speed floating on the quiet and unicorn-Scylence wheels, I'll stay conventional until the bugs are worked out and cost drops.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Ride a Hardtail Anymore?
@kanasasa: My only carbon is a 27.5 XTR hardtail intentionally fitted with DT/2.4 Maxxis 26" wheels. It's the fastest most maneuverable bike I've got for the hills, and my 29 steel ht is decked for bikepacking/long cruises.

Lone Bicycles Announces Parabellum Adjustable Frame
It's a poorly edited old press release recycled. I've been following Lone's development, and they were delayed because of the lawsuit for the use of the "Beretta" name, so they changed it to "Parabellum", a weapon from the defunct Luger company. I expect their next offering will be the "Tommy Gun", followed by the "Blunderbuss" ebike.

Review: Kitsbow’s Glove Collab with Mechanix is Comfortable, But Flawed
Mechanix Impact gloves have been my "go to" for the last 10 years. They get salty before they wear out. I wash, then swap them to yard work duty about every four years. Unheard of for cycling gloves.

Gear Guide: 10 Fenders for Sloppy Winter Mountain Biking
Huck Norris for the win! It's free with the pair of tire inserts, as part of the packaging. Eco-friendly, light, effective, and the cheapest of the lot.

The Jamis Bike 3VO Demo Tour Heads to the Sedona Mountain Bike Festival
In 1985, Jamis had arguably the nicest production bikes being sold. The filet brazes and bright red paint of the Dakar was top notch, and the deerhead Deore were the best components on the market. I hope Jamis can recapture some of that original magic again.
