I stare at steep trails until they're flat!

Stevie Smith - A Tribute - Video
@bube: that was one of the factors in me getting my Wilson a couple of years ago. Did a bunch of research and before and the bike felt the best to me after riding a few. Was a spur of the moment decision...best damn bike I've ridden (and I'm not the best at riding). Super stable and very confidence inspiring. So was Stevie. Watched him shred through the years and his progress, truly inspiring. I've lost a few friends along the way and you never get over it. You remember them and they live on because the time and experience/knowledge you gained from them will live on. I'm in a profession where I see death almost on a daily basis. You fight to save their lives but it doesn't always work out. Death does not affect me in ways that it affects others. I'm a bit jaded after all these years. If there is anything I've learnt, it's to not mourn them or be sad that they are gone but be happy and appreciative that you got to know the person and learn a few things about them. #longlivechainsaw

Stolen: Custom Bikes From Race Face and Easton
glad you got your bike back. The constable was telling you the truth. Unfortunately, it is hard to get them charged if there is not sufficient evidence. But in your case, the guy was in possession of stolen property. If he told the cops he got it off someone, it's his word against yours and theirs. It would be hard to disprove unless you had video evidence of the him taking the bike. The defence lawyer will literally tear holes in the argument if crown puts through a weak case. There is paper work involved but that is standard for all calls the police are involved in. As for the police not wanting to do anything. It's not that they don't want to do anything. Their actions can only take them as far as the law allows. I know they are frustrated with it, they may seem like they don't care but they do. I have many friends who are police officers and believe me, they care. I know how it feels. Getting your bike stolen is the worst feeling in the world. We all try to protect our investments but there will always be the idiots who feel they are entitled to things others have worked hard for. We can make it tougher for them but if they want it, they will take it.

Video: West Coast Riding Sometimes Bites Back
hm....someone seems happy with that 'endoscopy'. Did that stick come from where I think it did? Last time i went OTB, my handle bars clipped a chain link fence on the trail. Was already booking it and boom! Everything went slow mo...and then a hell of a lot of pain.

I have a Fox Launch upper body armor for sale. I no longer have a need for this one as I have another upper body armor that I am using. Size is Medium. For sizing info, I am 175lbs and 5' 75" with a medium build. It is a good fit for me as I am a medium in T-shirts and sweatshirts though it does fit a bit on the snug side but the armor doesn't move around like it is too loose. It has a back protector, kidney belt, shoulder and elbow protection, and foam chest plate. It is in good condition, no funky smells or huge rips. The only tear that I can see is in the meshing near the end of one of the sleeves but not bad. If you want a picture of it, please let me know and I will send one over to you. All the panels are intact and not cracked.

First Ride: 2015 Norco Aurum Carbon
looks like a stinger of a bike! Be interesting to see how it rides. Rented an Aurum last year for a day up at Whistler. Nice bike and definitely super fun around the corners. Having it drift around the berms brought a super wide ear to ear grin to my face! I have a Carbon Wilson so would be interesting to see how the new Aurum rides. Both different animals but I do like bikes...hm...another steed perhaps?
