Do You Ride Responsibly? – Poll
"My response was that the locals may be annoyed about losing their fresh and loamy-looseness, but many of the trails here are unofficial and on private land. Secondly, everyone is a local somewhere. If we all take care of a spot, then trail karma will spread and all spots will improve and extend. Right? Maybe." Really? Ever heard of Tragedy of the Commons? So the 50to01 crew conferred with the private land owners and asked if it was OK if they beat the crap out of their trails? And, it's OK to destroy anything on "unofficial" land? And the 50to01 crew is carefully tracking how much work they do and keeping it equal with the trails they wreck? Call me skeptical because I say BS to every single one of your justifications.

Don't Punch the Baby - Opinion
"I’ll also argue that it’s worth your while to ride an e-bike before you pass judgement on them. That is, to my way of thinking, common sense. We should understand a thing before we form an opinion about it. It might change your mind. Or maybe it wouldn’t. Either way, you’d be informed." Man, Felton, I love your writing and all, and basically agree with most of your points, but this is just wrong. Big wrong. I don't need to ride an eBike to understand it any more than I have to wrestle a pig to know something is awful. There's no mystery in understanding eBikes: they provide a boost for people who can't and/or won't pedal hard enough to get where they want to go. And I don't mean that in a disparaging way. I see the purpose and utility in eBikes, and I am especially stoked to see the local ancients here out riding the bike paths instead of whiffing past my elbow in their sedans. But, I don't need to ride an eBike to know that more power in the hands of morons never has a good outcome. Your argument for regulation and clarity is totally sound, but not the idea that I have to cross to the dark side to understand my (possible) enemy.

Taking on the Crankworx World Tour: The Caroline Buchanan Interview
I'm glad they corrected the spelling of her name on the cheque! I've always wanted a huge cheque like that, though. I'd fold it up about 20 times and shove it in the ATM.

Light & Motion 6 cell 11.1v lithium ion battery

$100 CAD
Up for sale is an unused 6 cell 11.1v lithium ion battery. I got this from the Pro's Closet on Ebay, hoping it would work with my Light & Motion Seca 800. Turns out this is one of the L&M lights that cannot use this battery, nor is my L&M charger capable of handling a 6 cell battery. So, here's the battery at an excellent price. I haven't used or charged the battery (for obvious reasons) but it does look brand new to me. The box the battery came in looks a bit beat up like it has been sitting on shelf somewhere for a while, but the Pro's Closet has an awesome reputation on Ebay, so I am sure the battery is as new and fresh as they claimed. The battery comes with a velcro frame strap.

Light & Motion Seca 800 and charger

$50 CAD
Up for sale, a Light & Motion Seca 800 in great shape, and the charger. I used this light infrequently for a couple of years, and it works fine. The battery has rolled over, however, so here's hoping someone out there has a compatible battery and wants a great light for cheap!

Trailforks Basemap for Garmin
If you have the map in your downloads folder, you should be able to copy it onto your Garmin, either into the base memory or by way of the SD card if your Garmin has that option. Then, I think you should be able to select the map in the Garmin device? Question for you: did you have trail karma before downloading? I have existing karma points, but they don't seem to be applicable to the Garmin download. So, I was wondering if you donated today specifically to get the Garmin download, and if so, if you got the points immediately?

Trailforks Basemap for Garmin
I'm double posting this here and in the Trailforks forum! So, having basemaps for Garmin is a totally brilliant idea. And, I see that each map costs 10 karma points. No problem there, except that I have donated recently using Trailforks ($50, February 1st) and my Trailforks karma for that donation is indicated to be 35. However, when I go to the Trailforks Garmin Basemap page, my profile says that I have no karma. I will be donating more through Trailforks (I just started using it for donations, rather than my previous method of making direct contributions to the local trail angels) but I'd like to know why the Trailforks Garmin Basemap page doesn't recognize my karma. What am I am doing wrong? Thanks!
