Bike Shop Employee Seriously Injured Attempting to Stop Thieves
@Farrier-Dave: More "TORONTO — When Sharon Shamblaw was diagnosed last summer with a form of blood cancer that could only be treated with a particular stem cell transplant, the search for a donor began. A Toronto hospital, 100 miles east of her home in St. Mary's, Ontario, and one of three facilities in the province that could provide the life-saving treatment, had an eight-month waiting list for transplants. Four months after her diagnosis, Shamblaw headed to Buffalo, New York, for treatment. But it was too late. She died at the age of 46, leaving behind a husband and three children, as detailed by the Toronto Star." In citing those numbers in its 2015 report, "Leaving Canada for Medical Care," the organization said difficulties in obtaining timely medical care at home is, increasingly, leading Canadians to seek it abroad. "It is possible [they] may have left the country to avoid some of the adverse medical consequences of waiting for care, such as worsening of their condition, poorer outcomes following treatment, disability, or death," the report says. "Some may leave simply to avoid delay and to make a quicker return to normal life." Canadians could expect to wait 9.8 weeks for medically necessary treatment after seeing a specialist in 2014, the researchers found, three weeks more than the time physicians considered to be clinically "reasonable."

@Farrier-Dave: Just incase you won't bother reading here are little tidbits. "Canada's single-payer healthcare system forced over 1 million patients to wait for necessary medical treatments last year. That's an all-time record. Those long wait times were more than just a nuisance; they cost patients $1.9 billion in lost wages, according to a new report by the Fraser Institute, a Vancouver-based think-tank. Lengthy treatment delays are the norm in Canada and other single-payer nations, which ration care to keep costs down. "

@Farrier-Dave: I've read study after study of how wonderful you system is- not. https://www.usnews.com/news/best-countries/articles/2016-08-03/canadians-increasingly-come-to-us-for-health-care https://www.forbes.com/sites/sallypipes/2018/06/11/canadians-are-one-in-a-million-while-waiting-for-medical-treatment/#5dab79c33e7d Our leaders peddle your system as some shinning example and that is pretty far from the truth.

@oscartheballer: I'm sure that area hasn't changed much since I was stationed in Brunswick. The cost of living there is nothing compared to Chino CA. You don't mention what your business is, but I wouldn't doubt its more profitable than a bike shop.

Review: Niner's New RIP 9 RDO 29
@WoodenCrow: What the hell are you babbling about. My post was a direct response to someone that suggested STA specific to inseams be listed, which I pointed out was useless because of all the variables I mentioned. So please tell me how crank length is irrelevant if you are given a STA for a person with a 29'' inseam.

Review: Niner's New RIP 9 RDO 29
@WoodenCrow: Why is this a hard concept? I replied to someone asking for STA for specific inseams not saddle heights. Do you know what an inseam measurement is? So I have a 32'' inch inseam and I go out and set my saddle to the right height for me on my bike and now measure the angle what does that tell you? Please answer me? NOTHING because you don't know if I had 165mm cranks or 175mm cranks, you don't know if I had my thin Crampon pedals on or thick Shimano platforms, what if I had clipless? Is it starting to sink in yet? Maybe I was wearing flip flops. Even your saddle height request is stupid, it should be the center of the rails since saddles vary. You down vote me but you're the one too dense to grasp the concept.

@skylerd: Apparently you missed that I was replying to someone that asked for STA for specific inseams. Well my post stands, if you trying to give numbers based on inseam everything else I mentioned would also need to be given.

@MikerJ: Then you need crank length, seat thickness and don't forget pedal thickness- oh wait what shoes was the person using when then measured. You see where it goes right.

YT Mob Announce Angel Suarez as Sole Rider & Open Competition To Find His Future Team Mates
@justanotherusername: You seem to miss the point. When looking for help developing your bikes you just aren't going to get the same level of feedback from an inexperienced rider as you are an experienced one. That's the point. Great they are bring up new riders and that's needed in the sport, but those new riders don't have the same level of experience as far as giving feedback for the improvement of current or development of a new design.
