Trail Riding in Ethiopia
Speaking of investigative work, Ethiopia doesn't even make the top-10 list for poorest countries in Africa.

Trail Riding in Ethiopia
I think you're stretching a little far, Waki. It's obvious that rich nations and companies have had a splendid time destroying plenty of mineral-rich countries in Africa to fill their own coffers. That is exploitation at it's finest, and millions of people unknowingly take part in that exploitation throughout their everyday lives by buying food, minerals (diamonds being the most popular one to point out), and oil that is both mined, and exported in corrupt, unethical ways from these countries. I don't think of a biking holiday as a holy crusade to end poverty in developing African nations. My point is that 'staying away' altogether means you are still likely supporting the exploitation of these countries unknowingly through second-hand means, so it's ignorant to think of that as the solution. On the other hand, by travelling there, meeting the people, learning a little of the culture, and trying to understand some of the issues they face, you are not doing any damage whatsoever. The fact that you are also riding a few of their trails, and putting some dollars into the hands of local business owners while you're there can hardly be considered a negative impact.

SRAM Announces New Hub Standards - Boost 148 and 110
April fools is still two weeks away? Maybe they released this early accidentally. I refuse to believe this is for real. Everything sounds too tongue-in-cheek defeatist.

Devinci Troy Carbon - Large

$3500 CAD
Large 2014 Devinci Troy Carbon. Awesome condition. Bought new in April, meticulously maintained. Devinci's fit small so it's comparable to being in between a medium and a large with most frame companies' frames Pike Fork, Fox CTD shock, Zee cranks, x9 der., Cromag saddle, Avid Elixer Trail9 brakes, minion front, highroller rear, jaalco wheels, 32t Blackspire narrow-wide sprocket. Rides great, looks great, climbs amazing and descends even better. Let me know if you want to give it a look-see. I'm in Nelson, but travel fairly often to the East Koots.

Mint Fit Inman Complete

$250 CAD
Mint Fit Inman. Rode a handful of times around town and at the skatepark. Not even enough to rub the paint off the crank arms or the stays. Bike is in Cranbrook but I'm all over the Kootenays so if you're interested in making an offer let me know, and we'll figure it out.
