@Sshredder: I believe it generates some nice substances in my brain. I watched it 4 times already. It is therapeutical. If I come to Vancouver next year (it's a rough plan right now) I MUST meet you.

Pinkbike Poll: Can Today's Mid-Travel Trail Bike Be Significantly Improved?
@torero , nobody here gets impressed by a guy tossing insults at plus bikes. You did not become a hero by saying it. No, Rob Warner won't write to you that Red Bull CEO wants to see you after he saw your comment. You may as well tell us how many girls you banged last night.

@GTruckus83: 650B Boxxers for 75 quid?! That sounds like fisherman's story even before the BREXIT :D

@MisterJones: quite on the contrary. So you wanting toys for nothing is a sign of altruism? And I am selfish for saying that people making bikes should be paid fairly for making them? You are saying this, because you have no clue how little money there is in bike industry. So no everything lower would make a sweat shop. Companies like ENVE, charging gajillions for a simple product can be counted on fingers of one hand. Why don't you want 100$ gokarts made by Ferrari so that kids can ride the best if one they they would like to maybe become F1 drivers? What kind of sick justice are you after?

I think I am fine with prices... If you can't afford something then buy used stuff. Unless you are into owning 5 bikes. IMHO, since MTB became a popular sport and trails are getting overcrowded, bikes should be at least 50% more expensive. This like those 30 year olds complaining on prices of houses and loans - you are not supposed to have a house when you are 30. What else do you want cheap? Sport cars? So that you can have a Lambo as your 3rd car and drive to Laguna Seca or Nurburgring every friday evening? Luxuries must cost money, it's good for you! I remember very well, the 80s when my aunt brought a banana from Germany and I went crazy. A year later she bought a can of Fanta. Me and my cousins were collecting cans, it was so rare to drink soda in Poland. You can't even imagine how it was to see a Mars bar through the shop window at Pevex, where you needed go have US dollars (which were hard to get) which then were exchange for coupons if the authority allowed you. When I started riding bikes I was a student, I could save 3$ per week. That's why I was buying patches because I couldn't afford a fkng tube. So sorry, I cannot appreciate moaning on prices of high end bicycles, especially since SLX level bikes are incredible these days.

@DragontalesDH: agreed. what I was trying to say in this essay filled with terrible grammar was: to me education is mainly a rite of passage that doesn't deserve as much attention as deliberate self improvement outside of it . If you are lucky it will boost something you are already good at. The trick is to land that first bigger job. Then everything gets much simplier. @Dfishdesign - I am brilliant at Building Information Software because I play with it. When I manage a big 3D model of a future house I play with it like my daughter with a doll house. And I kick the uncertainties in the face, when problem is there, I will kick it until the dark red blood comes out of it. I am ruthless. That what makes me good. And I am having hell of a lot of fun. All with tightest precision, knowing where each thing is. Coworkers and hired consultants from other disciplines love me. The cautious and meticulous people are the ones I clean after, because they are too preoccupied with not making mistakes that they don't notice how many they make. I also attended one of the best architecture schools in Europe so, huh sorry... When I came for exchange to Sweden me and my wife were Gods. Back at home we were average. The whole point is: be good at something, strive for excellence and never stop having fun with it. If you lack that, Do not expect education to fill that gap. That thing will get you a job you want.

A good teacher is a guy who 1.works in private sector, 2. Is truly successful at what he does 3. Feels a true calling to transfer knowledge to students and 4. Is good at sharing knowledge and teaching. There are 1 per 50 teachers like that. Any idiot student can do a huuuuge project for the final exam (like I did) and we all think that this project is what shows the employer what we are worth. Well no... First of all, employer must be employing ok? That is thing no1. There has to be a vacant job out there. All you who lost job in 2008, know what I am talking about. Second of all, in the first order, he will look for people who actually worked with stuff he expects them to work with, then if he doesn't find candidates with any experience he'll go: oh fk, I have to hire a newly graduated student who obviously knows sht but thinks a lot about how the world should work. And he will look for students by recommendation, he will call his friends asking for a good employee, or he will be called by a respectable friend and notified, that this and that kid looks for a job. not the best grades or fanciest final projects. Should I mention that you have to be lucky to send resume at a right time to right person, and official employment procedures work only in huge companies hiring a lot of people at once? D you know how many times my boss just got a mail on his pone and asked if I think the kud is worth anything? Finally that student must learn fast, how reality looks like. If no, go dream on somewhere else. That's about the worth of education: word: Graduated XXX school in XXXX year. All you are worth after graduation is the fact that you can be paid less, you have no kids, you will try to prove yourself useful, so you are eager to work over-hours. You can percorm simple tasks nobody of experienced in the office wants to do.
