10 Kooky and Cool Finds - Taipei Cycle Show
Before you all laugh at TopGun...realize that #1 Marzocchi had forks like that years ago, and #2 those are for bikes like $119 walmart and toy'r'us huffy's. They're not going to get QR hub wheels...they're getting solid bolted axle wheels. Those two yellow forks are actually for really cheap fat bikes... the model name is Fury. They have some better fat bike forks with oil/nitrogen cartridge damping and coil spring or air spring internals, in both 135mm open and 15mm thru-axle dropouts. They have a decent range of 650B and 29er suspension forks up to oh....comparable to Rockshox Recon series forks in price points. http://www.topgun.com.tw/product.php

Manitou's New Fat Bike Fork - Taipei Cycle Show
"choose either a RockShox Bluto or some sort of strange, inverted thing that may or may not work. " Is it soooo hard to find a pinkbike editor who ACTUALLY fat bikes and knows the existing market/products to write about new fat bike products ? By inverted "thing" i presume he's meaning the WREN forks and the other branded ones that come from that same factory which have been hit and miss for quality control... but there is also the DNM inverted fork which works quite well although its heavier, cannondale produces a lefty for fat bikes, RST has had their Renegade fork which is stiffer than the Bluto for over a year now, and there is another asian fork maker called TopGun with fat bike forks at the lower price points that function acceptably well for their price if you buy the correct models. It would have been nice had this write up about Manitou's fat offering if they'd included some better technical details like what the steerer tube options will be, what the offset is, what's the stanchion tube diameter, and if it will be only in 150mm dropout spacing or 135mm as well, and what the maximum tire width rating actually is...because the current "biggest", the Vee Rubber Snowshoe 2XL does NOT fit the Rockshox Bluto.

Manitou's New Fat Bike Fork - Taipei Cycle Show
Yes...because most trail areas where folks fatbike also as a consequence of humans being largely idiots only concerned with themselves...will have folks who walk on the snow trails without snowshoes or skis if the weather is nice and the sun is out shining bright with blue skies...leaving post holes as we call them...which then freeze into stutter bump city once the temperature dips again. Also...MANY fat bike users don't just ride on snow and sand...and if you're riding on rock/roots you need more pressure to prevent pinch flats if using tubes and bead burping if ridden tubeless.

Is Innova's ITT System The Next Step For Tubeless Tires? - Taipei Cycle Show
Whats old is new again...except to mid-30s Pinkbike staff where whatever a manufacturer says they did first is the gospel truth and nevermind what Geax, Slime and Love (original Onza founders) did 15-20 years ago.

Opinion: The Table
There are catalogs available online that can link you to the manufacturers to get price quotes... but as an example...an original first production year Steelwool Tweed (review can be found in issue #138 of Dirt Rag magazine)... the frames were taiwan made road touring-ish with tig-welded & lugged/brazed Tange Prestige double-butted chromoly and had vert drops and eccentric shell BBs (so they could be setup geared or fixie or internal-gear hub). Retail on the frameset was about $700USD and the price Steelwool paid F.O.B. to the factory (Maxway) was as I recall, $80USD. Now this ws 2008 so of course those prices aren't accurate anymore for that example (what with 9 years of inflation, changing dollar values, material/labour cost changes, etc), BUT you know those generic black undecaled carbon hardtail frames you see on ebay for as little as $300USD... they're being made by decent manufacturers in china and are of relatively good quality finish and construction, and the ebay sellers are able to make a good profit on them at that low $300 price. They're not as super engineered as a Trek or Specialized with the fanciest spec carbon... but for most buyers... they're good ENOUGH.
