Si, surely someone is making just a back plate on a light vest or something similar these days?

Honestly you've never heard a British person say the appreciate the NHS? People do complain about it all the time but ask them if they'd prefer a US style system... Most people I know feel that the government are underfunding it at the moment but overall it's a very good thing. In the US it seems like it's just in the hands of a group of profit making entities who've got the lot of you over a barrel. Refusing insurance for pre-existing conditions?? How on earth is that considered ethical in the medical world? I've got no problem with private hospitals in addition to public ones which provide a good standard but when your only option is to pay for private they can charge you whatever they like, although I'm sure it's sold to the public as a 'competitive' system!

Red bull run two F1 teams, they could have an athlete's health insurance fun in the blink of an eye.

jjohnny350 - I'm British and for all the faults of the NHS (our free at point of service, public health system) it's actually fantastic. There's no discrimination, no insurance company to argue who's fault it was or whether I was covered for a particular activity. If I go riding on the top of a remote mountain and break my leg, an entire team of people in a helicopter will come and get me and take me to a building where another team of experts will do everything modern medicine can do in order to fix me for as long as that takes and all of this I will not be charged for. If you speak to many British people the view of American healthcare is very far from jealous, most of us are terrified that the current government may privatise and then we'll be forced to have the same system as the US! That genuinely frightens me! Oh - and just to add, I've always got the option of going to a private clinic here if I want to pay for it.

Smith's out with injury for the first couple, which is a shame.

Giant VT Frame

$130 GPB
For sale is my Giant VT All Mountain frame with Rockshox Ario air rear shock. This frame has done me very well for getting into trail centre/all mountain type riding and it's only going to make way for something new. The frame has adjustable travel on the rear between 5.1" and 5.7", I recently replaced all of the linkage bearings and the tired Manitou rear shock with a new Rockshox Ario, so although the frame has done plenty of riding it has been looked after. The linkage is smooth with no play and the rear shock performs well, spring weight is adjustable by the air pressure and rebound damping is adjustable via the red knob. As mentioned this frame did very well to get me into this sort of riding (I'm normally a downhiller), it pedals extremely well on the climbs and the additional give in the rear end provides plenty of grip on the descents whilst making the whole thing a lot more comfortable. Hopefully it will go to a good home and get someone else plenty of enjoyment. The frame is a size medium and take a 30.9 seatpost, it takes a 1 1/8" steerer tube and is fitted with a headset to accommodate this, the rear wheel is 135mm and QR.
