Slack Randoms: A Parallelogram Suspension Stem, Dangerous Deer and Brazen Thieves
I don't think you're a radical per say, but have you thought out the other side of confronting a criminal element with a weapon long term? Does that just mean the guy has a gun the next time to match the potential threat of someone that's not law enforcement having a weapon that can overwhelm them? An open carry gun doesn't matter much if it elevates the every day criminal to concealed carry does it? The desperate are more likely to find a way to succeed than the careful. I see civilian open carry almost the same as police equipment escalation, the criminal group will match or better the opposing force eventually. In this case, with the next encounter the thief had a weapon and both parties opened fire, would the potential danger to civilians surrounding the incident be worth it?

Slack Randoms: A Parallelogram Suspension Stem, Dangerous Deer and Brazen Thieves
@islandforlife: This will get your bike stolen for sure. There are difference levels of tooled thieves, from people with small clippers and hack saws to pro's with battery powered saws and grinders. Having cut off a ton of them working in shops, I can get through a cable lock in about 25-45 seconds with 30$ clippers, likely without anyone noticing. I had to cut through a level 10 U-lock with a hack saw years ago for a customer and it took me 45 minutes and two ok saw blades. Even with a grinder you need to cut both sides off a U-lock to free it up. Also with a grinder, it's loud and noticeable by people around you. With cable locks I've watched security cam footage of someone walking away from their norco range on a rack and a guy with clippers snapped off the lock and take the bike before the guy was barely in the store. With a half decent lock it wouldn't have been taken without staff or the guy noticing the noise of the shackle being cut. Not sure why the customer didn't just bring it inside, that was a bad move either way, but a really lock is worth it. A few years ago we had 3 bar bikes locked with one folding abus shackle lock. When we got out of the pub the lock was a mess, all of the plastic around the joints cut away and the metal marred up. Bikes were still there. a 100$ lock is cheaper than a new bike. I will agree with #3. I shake my head when I see high end bikes on racks. People will literally break into peoples homes for bikes, why people think leaving their expensive investment out in the street unsupervised in a major city is beyond my comprehension.

I know I buy trip insurance when I enter the US, it's pretty cheap tbh and worth it if anything happens. On a riding trip you just need to make sure it covers sports or racing which usually costs slightly more. better than a 10k+ hospital bill though.

Sombrio Releases its First Mountain Bike - A $999 Hardtail
I ended up using the Micro shift Advent 9 on my Rootdown built this year because there was literally nothing else, some stuff I ordered in October last year is still MIA. For the $150 I spend on the entire group it's near flawless. Sure the 9 speed 11-46 had some big jumps but you get used to it. Only thing I'd wish I'd done is get the pro 9 shifter I didn't know existed at the time so it would push/pull release. I'm in no hurry to swap out the group since the whole thing's costs as much as the XT derailleur on my other bike.
