Where would you go, if you could road trip anywhere? - Pinkbike Poll
@VPS13: I've checked. Van's aren't cheap! :-(

@VPS13: There was a great vid a couple of months on here talking about all the riding on some of the islands as you head south from Whistler along the Sea to Sky corridor. Seeing stuff out there and meeting local peeps is my next big desire. Renting a pickup to carry the bike can be kind of expensive but I'll make it work some how.

I've been to Whistler three times now and each time I go I realize just how much more there is. 11 days this year and 13 the last time and I am still shocked that I keep finding more stuff!

@lewi26: Ignote above comment. Browser crashed! Bummer about the issues. I work in tech and have had to deal with my share of show stopper issues in the past.

Ghost's H AMR X Adventure Bike - Crankworx Whistler 2016
@VwHarman: ROFL!!!! I agree with you on the issues surrounding gearbox acceptance. It needs some standards and maturation. It's not bad at all. That said, I don't think the derailleur get's hate as much as a lot of people just want to see it go. A lot of people can see the future of a gearbox and see it being in the way. A better and less argumentative way to look at this is to just simply say if/when gearboxes become cheap (or at least much cheaper) and more efficient we'll see them used more. Until then, it's that cute little derailleur that rules the roost. :-)

@PHeller: I think your position is warranted! Cost is everything. That said, I still think gearboxes are the future precisely because they are too expensive to be the present. In other words (and as every other technology has shown) it's often years before a technology can be made cheaply enough for wide spread use. Until then, I'll stay 1x10 with a wide ratio cassette.

@VwHarman: Notice how you got a down vote as opposed to an answer? Because fanboi! It's easier to down vote than explain a position. And we all know fanboi's are emotional about what they like. That makes them stupid and unable to understand why they spend what they spend on x, y, or z. Instead, when someone challenges them on it, they can't answer without revealing an internal flaw. Cognitive dissonance at it's best. So on PB, they just down vote and be done with it.

Harder for bears to see. A bright turquoise Nomad with pink accented Enve's might get me killed! LOL
