First Ride: The New Intense Tracer 279
Times are good my man! As you point out, there is something for everyone. Unfortunately we also have the internet to see that other people might like different stuff and that just seems to make everyone mad. But there is a cure: Go ride your favorite bike and don't sweat the marketing!

UCI Releases Sustainabilitiy Guidelines as it Sets Goal to Become Carbon Neutral
@burnermtb: The "micro" changes not being able to fix global warming on their own (they can't) is no reason to not do them. If we ever do get 4th gen nuclear we will need everyone in electric cars to make the whole system work! Please continue doing whatever it is youre doing to encourage nuclear development, be it lobbying your representatives, voting for a pro-nuke member of the board, or designing the freakin lasers. There is a lot of work to be done before a *concept* reactor can claim superiority over the 2nd-ish lowest cost power source in operation today. Posting "go nukes!" on the internet or arguing the marginal differences of approaches when all of them are necessary doesn't help.

8 Environmental Initiatives in the Bike Industry: SRAM's Fiber Recycling Patent, Sustainable Production, & More
"buying less, repairing and reusing your things, and riding more locally are the best things for the earth" Thats great and we should absolutely do that...but you and I aren't going to make a dent. The myth of individuals being able to address a global problem comes from the very industries that made the mess! That 80's commercial with the Native American's single tear at seeing litter? It was produced by the packaging get people to make their states to clean up trash so people wouldn't feel guilty throwing everything they could sell more disposable junk! If you really want a trip, see what Exxon's been up to for the past 40 years. We need institutional change. PB Canada, lobby your government to shut down the tar sands. Stop the BLM from leasing oil rights. etc.

Already been said but worth piling on here, your "replaced alternator" has about the same amount of metal and plastic as an ebike motor, just less machining. The tech at a bike shop who is trained on truing wheels is not set up diagnose a blown power transistor with an oscilloscope. But they can install a rebuilt unit from a service center that is.

Ebike battery waste = 3 bad for the environment units* Cracked carbon fiber ebike = 5 bad for the environment units Driving a car to work for a week = 6 bad for the environment units For goodness sakes get more people on these bad for the environment ebikes!!! Its right there in the first paragraph "The perfect is the enemy of the good". A non-sarcastic HOORAY for France! *units made up but the point stands

Senator Lee Reintroduces Bikes in Wilderness Legislation
@bocomtb: "You must only walk" is probably one of the simplest, least clumsy way of minimizing access. Especially compared to setting up an agency, fee structure/lottery, access impact studies, etc.

More Than 50% of Pro Riders Feel They Wouldn't be Adequately Financially Supported After Injury - State of the Sport Survey
@kleinschuster: "People should just do X Like I do!" I guarantee if your hammer is "index fund ETF" (which I agree is historically correct) your experience is not typical. You think everyone on minimum wage has verizon and a BMW X1? Have you even seen a Walmart? Might be time to re-evaluate your assumptions of what plenty of Americans can easily do...
