Pinkbike Poll: Who's Breaking Bikes These Days?
Interesting how there has been more broken alloy frames then carbon frames, any fan of alloy frames will say that they break less, but as time of commenting there are more broken alloy frames

Video: Magura Concept Integrates Brake Hoses Into Handlebars for Cable-Free Cockpit
Skip intergration, go straight to wireless, get the true on/off feel of your brakes such as the desired feeling of shimano brakes, when you can only turn them on and off

First Look: The New Specialized Fuse is a Hardtail, Built for Fun
I've never wanted a hardtail so much, hats off to specialized for making a modern-ish geometry, enduro hardtail that will only fill a small group of riders, wanting a specific type of bike. This bike would make a perfect secondary bike to someone who has a super heavy duty enduro rig and sometimes wants something easier to ride.

4 Hardcore Hardtails - Core Bike 2019
If your going to make a "Hardcore Hard tail" than at least have the common sense to have a short seat tube, with having no rear suspension you want to be able to slam that seat to get it out of the way with your leg movements and it makes them look like a old xc bike, but that seems to have been changing because not as many bikes nowadays have high seat tubes.

Review: The 2019 Pole Machine Has a Serious Need For Speed
How would it feel in corners with that steep seat angle, I've been told that the reason why Santa Cruz bikes corner and feel like a DH bike on descents is because of the slack seat angle, I will never understand the obsession with steep seat angles on Enduro bikes where they are wanting to ride descents as fast a possible.

Day 2 Randoms - Core Bike 2019
Those stealth fat bars are seriously nice, shame they are carbon because they would probably last me a month if I was lucky

Sam Hill Signature Nukeproof Stem, Grips & Handguards - Core Bike 2019
I can definitely see the advantages of running hand-guards, especially in really tight, steep tracks are in the middle of the rain forest, vines that will rip your hands to shreds are common and will hang over the track waiting for you to ride into them ripping your hands up, instead of digging thorns out of your knuckles the vine would just be brushed aside. However I don't think they would be of any use on bike park style of trails where there is almost never anything hanging over because the trail is wide and maintained regularly.

Sam Hill Signature Nukeproof Stem, Grips & Handguards - Core Bike 2019
I think they would be better in places with vines that hang down, I've got scars all over my knuckles from vines cutting my hands up as i ride down a trail, having hand-guards they would just be brushed aside instead of digging into your knuckles.

Sam Hill Signature Nukeproof Stem, Grips & Handguards - Core Bike 2019
Hmm whats goggles with a full face and knee-pads, hands are some of the most exposed part of your body when you ride so it makes sense to give them better protection that just light weight gloves, especially if you live in a place where your knuckles get cut up by vines on most rides.
