5 Things We Learned from Red Bull Rampage 2021
Agreed. End this event. There are too many serious injuries. A few years ago, Clif stopped sponsoring the free solo climbers. It was the right move. I recocognize that people can disagree on what level of risk is ethical to fund, but this event goes pretty far over the line for me. It is way on the high end of the spectrum in terms of risk.

Trek Finds Carbon Frames Produce Nearly 3 Times the CO2 of Alloy in its First Sustainability Report
@tpg512: Well, those goalposts moved from executing 77 million people to executing "CEOs, celebrities, and hedge fund managers" when you realized your neck would be on the chopping block. Maybe don't call for executions at all.

Trek Finds Carbon Frames Produce Nearly 3 Times the CO2 of Alloy in its First Sustainability Report
@tpg512: Hey, you do live in the USA right? More than half of Amercan wage earners are in the top 1% of world income. We set our poverty line at the about the 90%ile of world income. Net worth to be at the 50%ile in world wealth is a little over $4k. Net worth to be at the 99%ile is a little under $100K. Be careful what you wish for.

@tpg512: Or just levy a carbon tax. One of these is less evil than the other.

I think it looks fine but I upvoted just because that was funny as sh*t.

Williams Racing Products Release New CentreHub Decoupling Spider
DaneL is correct here, and all of the kickback explanations in the thread only serve to obscure the relevant comparison. The claim in the article is that this system "offers instant engagement". If that is true, then the pedal kickback you will get with this system is likely more than the pedal kickback you will get without this system. It cannot be less. With a conventional freehub, you don't get kickback unless the elongation rate of the upper run of the chain is fast enough to cause the freehub to engage (which is a function of rear wheel rotation speed, of course). So if this system engages faster (taking into account relevant ratios) than the freehub, kickback happens more. The only way it can reduce kickback is if it takes longer to engage.

Fail. It is missing a bike stand. How do you work on a bike without a bike stand?

Time is Running Out For the Women Cyclists of Afghanistan
@Mntneer: Those screwups are our government's fault. Most of the bad things, however, are not. The Taliban has an army made up of Afghans. The overwhelming majority of the fighters in that army grew up in a democratic Afghanistan and chose to fight for the Taliban. Only a tiny fraction of the Taliban army is old enough to have been part of the Taliban pre-2001. Only a tiny fraction of Afghans were or are willing to fight for democracy. In effect, the Afghans have voted for what they have now.
