Pinkbike Poll: Re-cycling?
I am currently running a toothpaste tube in my front tyre as a permanent tyre gash repair. There's always something in the garbage that can be put to use!

I think we spoke a long while ago as I was looking for aluminium tubes to build my own prototype. It's still a dream I'm following, lots of plans are in place - I'm hoping that one day I have a prototype to show off as well! I look forwarding to hearing about how Dead Rabbit rides :)

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Care Where a Product is Made?
Hmm, well it's a very interesting reply you've taken the time to post. And I definitley agree that a simple comments thread couldn't be very persuasive.I'd be interested in seeing some evidence to suggest that making T-shirts in the UK is more productive than making Ts in the Far East. I am open to evidence I don't yet know about, which as you've said, I'm not experienced in this area. I commute with a Geographer who knows this story very well. I'll chat more to her about her thoughts as someone who is extremely well read.

Opinion: Sharing Secret Trails
I like meeting other riders on 'undisclosed trails' - I know that person has cut their teeth in exploration on their bike like me, I know that rider values a few meters of new gold than a few miles of trail asphalt, I know that s/he is driven by the spirit of adventure. When I meet people who only know how to ride by following a GPS or trail markers, I feel disappointed for them.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Care Where a Product is Made?
I'll call BS on that @hamncheez. you'll probably find that sweatshops have the highest productivity of any labour force because they don't get breaks, they have long hours, they have crap contracts so if they don't keep to the expected minimum they can be dismissed and reprimands / punishment for not meeting quotas is harsh. The thing is with people who are highly qualified, is they are also highly educated and well represented, so they will only do an amount of work that they deem fair - a position workers in sweatshops cannot take. Furthermore, our moral stance in this country is that we, as workers, should be safe from harm, be encouraged to develop professionally, and be reimbursed for our efforts. The definition of a sweatshop is one in which these human rights are foregone in favour of productivity. There is no argument that says it is ok not to have human rights because they benefit in other ways (this is the same stance that confederates took in the US civil war on the rights of Blacks; that they were better off being slaves in America because they had access to Christianity). Despite what your earlier link suggests, human rights are non-negotiable.
