Time Announces New 'Speciale 8' Enduro Pedal
Our measurement of time is an invention and relative to our planet, but time exists -- events happen in sequence, not all at once.

Bike Shop Employee Seriously Injured Attempting to Stop Thieves
@Farrier-Dave: Also, you’ve made my point. Let’s suppose some large invading force from across the Pacific is advancing on North America. Easily detected, right? Which magical mystery force in the continent is going to stop it? You know the answer. Which magical mystery force on the continent acts as a deterrent stopping them from even trying it in the first place? (Hint: It’s not beaver dams). Not a big deal, man. Just reality. If I were Canadian, I wouldn’t give a rip. I’d sleep well knowing someone else has got this covered, and I don’t have to pay for it. Go about my business of playing hockey and drinking maple syrup.

Bike Shop Employee Seriously Injured Attempting to Stop Thieves
@Farrier-Dave: I’m going to agree with you that I would prefer our military shift its focus to defense of our own borders instead of being flung across over 100 nation’s around the world. No one is trying to invade you for any number of reasons, sure. One reason is you’re all so peaceful, loving and above it all. Another one of those reasons is that 80 percent of you live within 100 miles of our border. So an attack on you, it’s in our best interest to have your back. We will be there. Your politicians know that. They can spend elsewhere. That’s all I’m saying.

Burning Question: What's Next for Mountain Bike Helmet Safety?
@chillrider199: Yeah, a football helmet weighs a ton compared to a bike helmet, so right now, I don't think this is feasible. But maybe someday bike helmets can develop something based on this technology? I don't know if it's possible, but maybe? As for conspiracy -- man, I don't think that's the case. These established companies, like Bell for example, are not in it to make a cheap, fast buck. Helmets have been their business for decades and decades. I truly believe they are in it for the right reasons -- to provide us with safest helmets for our needs at competitive prices. They have a mission. They have a reputation to uphold. Everything they come out with is not the ultimate solution to every danger, but it is researched and the best they can do given the technology. And if someone comes up with something better, they better keep up, or go out of business. And to be clear, I'm just using Bell as an example of a company that has been around a while. It can be any of these established companies. They want to be competitive and make money, but they also sincerely want to keep you as safe as their technology will allow. I believe that.

Burning Question: What's Next for Mountain Bike Helmet Safety?
Here's what I'm talking about. I'm no engineer. I don't know if this can ever be applied to bike helmets, being smaller and lighter. I don't know if this is even safer. But it is innovation. (and might even solve the need to buy a new helmet after each crash). It makes me wonder why this is not on any of these guys' radar. a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpnzubtUX3s">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpnzubtUX3s/a>

Burning Question: What's Next for Mountain Bike Helmet Safety?
The shells of new football helmets are soft, not rigid. If you take out the skeleton -- the insides -- the shell is soft, kind of like a foldable tire. (Maybe not to that extent, but you get the idea). I've also noticed there are panels that allow the helmet to be pushed in, independent of the rest of the shell, to absorb shock. It's not the same sports, and needs aren't the same, but maybe there's something here in terms of protecting athletes better against concussions.

Adam Brayton's New Nukeproof Dissent World Cup Bike
Man, that's brand loyalty. If it cracks one time on me -- damn, bad luck. Twice... Well, this is not the quality product I thought it was. But maybe I give it another chance. Third time -- nope, get your poop together before I buy this again. Honestly, third time is a stretch. Then again, if they're replacing it each time for free, I'll take it.

I'd also appreciate green aftermarket. Looks good on the OEM stuff.
