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!

Counterpoint: Do We Really Need E-Bikes?
"In an ideal world, I'd like to see e-biking positioned as an entirely different sport" This! And, I think as consumers, we have to let our favourite companies know that we aren't onboard with what they are pedalling (see what I did there?). Yeah, eBike sales are growing, but they are still a fraction of total sales, and our money talks pretty loudly. I also have no problem complaining (gently) about seeing eBikes in bike shops, much the same way I would complain if they started stocking motorbikes. It's all moral relativism, but consumers are allowed to draw lines. Will my next bike come from a company that makes eBikes or from a shop that sells them? I have a lot of brand and bike shop loyalty, but I also ride a damn big moral high horse, so I'd have to say that I'll probably opt to buy from places/companies that share my annoying righteous attitude.

Trek Slash 9.9 29 RSL - Review
"It used to be that achieving adequate tire clearance on longer travel 29ers was a tricky proposition, but thanks to the advent of 1x drivetrains and 12x148mm rear spacing that's no longer as much of an issue." I am not sure I agree with this. I have a Specialized Enduro from last year, which is 12x142 (so it's an outdated paperweight, of course) that has loads of room for bigger tires. In fact, I plan to get some 2.6s for that bike because other people have done it and it works. Does Boost actually do anything where the tires clear the frame? I don't think so? It's just a matter of sculpting in some extra clearance into the carbon rear triangle. Tossing the front derailleur is the secret sauce.
