Industry Digest: 30% Drop in Shimano Annual Bike Sales, Apple Vision Pro Shopping Apps, Brake Lever Lawsuits & More
@Tmackstab: I thought that Better Call Saul was an exaggerated take on lawyer advertising in America. And then I visited Chicago...

Peter Sagan Undergoes Surgery After Heart Arrhythmia During MTB Race
I think this is a common format to convey unexpected medical information. Eg, you're a surgeon and you've had an emergency surgery on Alice, and you're calling Bob to tell him that his wife is fine. You start first by saying that "Alice is fine". You don't go: Is this Bob, this is a St Charlie hospital's ER and we had a surgery on your wife Alice..." People completely freak out on that. So you first convey the most important news (Alice is fine), and then you go into more details.

Trailforks 2023 Development Updates
@elyari: This has nothing to do with OSS so comparisons are stretched at best. Also it would be great if you would not use ad hominem arguments against other users. Thanks!

Trailforks 2023 Development Updates
@canadaka: That doesn't answer my question. I seriously doubt that the trail database would be as large as it is if this project was subscription based since the beginning. You can say that subscription was unplanned, and we only have your word on that. With the rate of growth that you had, I'm sure you knew many months in advance when you were going to start charging for it, and you could have been transparent about it and just said it that many months in advance. I genuinely doubt that you went into a serious project like this without any consideration about current and future costs and no plans how to solve those. You could have been at least sincere and said: "hey guys we might put this behind paywall, or accept donations in the future, but you're welcome to add your contributions" and nobody could take offense on that. The uptake might have been slower, but at least people would know what to expect. But pretending to be a underdog, while vacuuming trails from user's strava accounts, and worst of all; having people spend many hours drawing trails, and then later locking those in a vault seems disreputable. In the end your intentions might have been pure, but this is still a classic bait and switch, and really left a sour taste for any further contribution in any kind of grass roots software. Tempi passati as Italians would say.

Trailforks 2023 Development Updates
@pmhobson: The difference is that if contributors were informed about the plan to hide everything behind a paywall in advance, there would be no contributors. So they kept silent about it, and did a rugpull when they've decided they have enough data and traction. They call this "capitalism" now, I call this bait and switch, and apologizing this kind of behaviour is immoral at best and I hope one day even illegal.

Opinion: Save the Turns, Stop the Straightlines
@mikekazimer: Not bike trail related, but our coast is plagued with those. Every frigging tourist thinks he has to build one in that "special place". Its a disgrace. Imagine me coming to some European country and start building those in all over. I would get fined at least, imprisoned at worst. My wife and me destroy as much as those as we can but it's a losing battle as they are everywhere.

Review: Five Ten Trailcross XT Shoes
Glad they've padded the last eyelet as it was ankle grinder on the previous version of this shoe. It was thin, sharp and stiff. You can see it on the last picture in the article (right shoe) even though that is a sleeved version so that design flaw wasn't perhaps noticeable. I had to cut the material around the last eyelet to make it less uncomfortable, and I still don't understand how they could have make a design flaw like that.

Bex Baraona Off Yeti & Without 2024 Team
@justanotherusername: this is not what Ttimer is talking about. I don't think anyone would be upset if Yeti said: "times are tough, we don't have a budget for you next year sorry, bye." But obviously they've cited "poor performance" instead of admitting to lack of money, which would make them look bad, so its better to make her look and feel bad. This is even more moronic to do because in her case "poor performance" just factually isn't true, and to an employee (of any sort) thats a dirty insult especially if you're really trying to do your best. I'm sure she's bitter because of that and I understand it. Some companies are actually ran (or represented) by assholes and not calling out that shit is a disservice to everyone else.
