@JungleT: Ah of course, that makes sense. I wonder how much deflection there is, nanometers?

Lauren Gregg's Weekend Van/Race Routine - Video
@VwHarman: Yes you do choose to have a job that feeds your family, it is a choice. Responsibilities are a choice, not an excuse, you could choose to abandon your responsibilities. I'm not saying that makes you a good person or is the right choice, IT IS YOUR CHOICE to stay obligated to your responsibilities. I think all would agree its a poor choice to abandon your family to have the lifestyle in the article, it doesn't make it any less of a choice. My point is if you think it's terrible where you are at, then start making the choices to be where you want to be.

So they measure the flex of the arm in a what looks to be less than 1cm area? Hard to believe it can be accurate. I wish there were more details on how it worked. And isn't carbon much stronger than AL, thus there is less deflection to measure, so it would be less accurate?

@jgdblue: What's preventing you from doing the same? Most likely only fear. No matter the circumstances you could have the same lifestyle if you choose to. That's not to say you wouldn't have great sacrifices to do so, only that it's your choice not to, and there's nothing wrong with that. Many choose security and luxury over crapping in a bucket.

Blackburn Chamber HV Pump - Review
Did he say if its consistent? This is one of few pumps that has a low PSI gauge that I've seen so I'd like to get it, but what is the point of a gauge that is 2 PSI off? 2 PSI at 20 PSI is 10%, that is totally unacceptable for an $80 pump. And if it's not consistent then you're talking a range of 4 PSI, or 20% error. Knowing if it's consistently off or just off is a huge deal. Furthermore, how does he know the Topeak SmartGauge D2 is accurate? Maybe it is off! Cool looking pump though.

Helping an Orphanage in Kathmandu, Nepal with Vive La Vie
Hard to believe we ride bikes that cost more than an average yearly salary in Nepal ($3500 USD).

High Voltage: The Inside Line on Electronic Shifting and Suspension
True, but it is only a matter of time before batteries become more powerful, and devices use less power that you will rarely need to charge anything. Manufactures are releasing electronic components because they know it is the future. Electronic shifting will cost less than mechanical shifting some day, be vastly easier to install, more reliable, faster, lighter, and integrated with your other components. Think about the use model, think about setting your bike into climb mode with one click: 1) your shock locks out 2) your fork goes into low travel, becomes stiffer 3) tire PSI decreases 4) your BB height raises 5) seatpost raises fully 6) etc I would not be at all surprised if all of this done automatically based on trail profiles and GPS, settings could be changed on the fly for every bump, jump, dip, and rut. Even differently per day depending on the weather. Does this take some of the skill out of knowing and doing these things yourself? Sure it does, just like every other mechanical advantage discovered by humans does, but those who know the principals behind them will utilize them best. These things will offer a funner experience, in the end who cares what your geometry, compression, dampening, and PSI are? Messing with all of the technicalities takes away time from riding.
