Day 2 Randoms - Eurobike 2021
Really like the look of Suntour - tried to buy some Durolux last year online. Great deal, solid looking forks but after poor communication and a bit of a runaround I cancelled my order. Shame as I still think they have the potential and are still on my shortlist.

5 Ways The UCI, EWS, & Other Race Organizers are Addressing COVID-19
@tobiusmaximum: Sorry, been away from this forum for a few days. Personally I have to agree with @ajp1. I too have read all of those books and I think we can all agree that that would be a 'bad thing'. Interestingly if that was the case and 'lockdown' gave them unprecendented authority I would have thought that wannabe autocrats like Trump, Bolsonero and Putin would have been all over them like white on rice but it seems that the opposite was true. Are we moving to an age where technology could be misused and better enable some of the things you are talking about. Yes we are. But whether or not these are the underlying reasons why this technology is being created - I don't believe so. It sounds like you are a Brexiter. From where I sit that is the worst decision Britain has made in 50 years and is going to have a massive impact on your standard of living. Sure you'll have independence. It won't solve many of the social issues that Britain is facing - you'll just be poorer too. Interestingly, Boris and Nigel were using the exact techniques in the books referred above to push their own agenda. The point everyone is debating is whether there is some new world order pulling the strings and I just don't believe that is the case and although you have said you have proof you constantly say we just won't believe it. Sh!t or get off the pot, but I don't believe you have any real credible evidence. As for this amazing, co-ordinated global conspiracy, all I know my local council can't agree what to do with a cycle lane...

@tobiusmaximum: Thanks. I don't mind if it is longer than one paragraph. Feel free to link to appropriate material. Cheers

5 Ways The UCI, EWS, & Other Race Organizers are Addressing COVID-19
@tobiusmaximum: Thanks. I've enjoyed the discussion, but feel this would be much easier over a beer. The point of good debate (assuming people are open to it) is to collectively find truth. At this point I don't understand the following things from your rhetoric: 1. Who is behind this big conspiracy - but they're big enough to be hugely influential in every government even as those governments change. 2. What is their end goal or motivation? Is this just money or power or something else? 3. How COVID fits with their larger strategy - and how does this align with other world events? 4. Are leaders like Bolsonero and Trump complicit in this or fighting the good fight? 5. Was Boris originally fighting the good fight, but then they got to him and he changed his tune? Instead of teasing us with one line statements that we're all a bunch of sheeple (which we could well be) could you please just write one paragraph outlining exactly what is going on and to what end. Much appreciated.

@tobiusmaximum: We are heading into much more philosophical territory. Obviously you would rather remove all restrictions and let nature run its course (we could go down a rabbit hole of whether anybody should receive medical care ever). Is there a point for you when the death rate would be too great? What is your threshold?

@tobiusmaximum: Firstly what is the cost? Is it money? People are expendable for money? If that is the case let's reopen the pits and send the kids down. I have seen an awesome job of brain washing in Britain recently and it wasn't related to COVID. Brexit has been a much better job of misguiding the public for the benefit of the entitled few. I think that is a much greater risk to Britain long term that COVID.

@tobiusmaximum: This could very well be natures way of reducing our population, but that is a different debate. One is disputing the 'facts' around COVID. The other is accepting those facts and plotting a path. If you believe in herd immunity and we split the different on death rate, it sounds to me you are happy for up to 1 million people to die in the UK before this is finished. What is the level before that becomes unacceptable? Do you have a number? Or until it affects you personally? Somebody close to you - or even you? Are you prepared to sacrifice yourself for the good of the herd? Or do you just consider this unlikey?
