Bike Shop Employee Seriously Injured Attempting to Stop Thieves
@Thustlewhumber: It seems like you didn't receive proper education yourself, otherwise you wouldn't try to estimate the impact of an education system that doesn't force credits on you or a universal healthcare system by analyzing some special features or anomalies within your corrupt, distorted and overly expensive system. You're very welcome to visit terrible socialist Austria, where I've gotten my degree and subsequent training to become a surgeon for free. Just like the other ~80% (not 4%...) who are permitted to that study based on a fair test, not by the bank roll of your parents. And if an 80 year old patient who might have worked as a waiter all of his or her life is diagnosed with a metastazised kidney tumor, he will get a 100.000€ Ipilimumab/Nivolumab therapy, with 0€ of deductables (ok, 6€ per prescription, to be precise), no question. You are being robbed by corporations and the super rich, sorry to say. Anyways, all the best to Megan. Get well soon!

Video: 50to01's Raw 2018 Highlights
50to01 crew is awesome and I surly am a big fan of raw videos - BUT - they're best when 1-4min long - care to cutting and sound is given This 30min edit would be so much better if an actual videographer cutted the footage properly, maybe adding in some non riding shots and - I dare to say it - add some music. It just lacks atmosphere. And, no offence, it's kind of repetitiveness is an issue at some points. Not in the first minute with those different lines and outcomes, but e.g. those festline shots from 10:22 on...just cut some of that blur footage out. And btw: 5:06: did I miss the day when speeding up footage became cool again, if it ever has been? Still a nice edit, but it could be so much better!

Video: Peaty's 'Badass Santa' Christmas Edit
I thought it was Santa himself. No, seriously: I think it was pretty clear from the beginning it wasn't Steve. Plus they did mention Rob Welch at the beginning of the credits, nothing wrong there.

Rest in Peace: The Rise & Fall of Interbike
next will be most local bikeshops and after that 90% of market share will be in the hands of even fewer big players You doubt it - look at Germany! You all know about their direct sales companies (YT, Canyon, Rose, Radon, Propain..) - but there have been dozens of brands a few years ago. I can not remember 2 friends riding the same bike back in those days - now you have to find an excuse why you didn't buy a damn Jessfy or whatever. And while I don't have exact figures obviously market share has shifted dramatically towards a few. Some of the older ones will abandon their dealers and manage to switch to a direct sales model, or a combined model or actually survive whilst sticking to selling via dealers (Ghost, Cube, Haibike,..). And some smaller companies that switched to (mostly) direct sales will keep their niche spot (Nicolai, Alutech, Last,..). That may seem like a lot and obviously Germany is on the winner side when it comes to that market transformation, but still: when I think back to the earlier 2000s, there have probably been 100 MTB Manufacturers - when was the last time you heard from Hot Chili, Principia, Steppenwolf, Stoll, etc Support pluralism via your niche frame manufacturer ;)

From The Top: Szymon Kobylinski, Founder of NS Bikes
For heavens sake, why did you call the company NS Bikes? Obviously, I have not the slightest doubt that the Nazi acronym is pure coincidence, but what's the true reason? Actually, in Austria you couldn't ride a minute without someone finding that kind of weird, not to say suspicious - or, even worse, cool. The association with the Hitler regime (NS=Nationalsozialisten=Nazis) is just too strong. Please, enlighten us!
