Welcome to the 2020 Pinkbike Field Trip - Value Bike Edition
@hamncheez: Dude I am actually in total agreement with you about that if your numbers are accurate. That's kinda insane. 11 speed SLX works great, I have it on both my bikes (including my 32 lb steel hardtail ;)). This is kinda unrelated but I'm with the NSMB guys on this, I would love less, not more, gears for the type of riding I do. Sometimes I think a 3 speed would be perfect, super easy granny gear, trail gear for descending/climbing low angle hills, and a street gear for cruising fast. Probably not possible given the big jumps between gears but a guy can dream eh?

@hamncheez: fair enough. Delete my first sentence please but my point still stands :)

Video: British Doctor Urges Mountain Bikers to "Make Good Decisions"
@RoadStain: Going to keep this brief, don't need to add fuel to your bonfire. -My clinic is closed as of last week and for the foreseeable future. That means 6 of my colleagues and our two employees (who will collect unemployment) are going without any earned income for an indefinite amount of time. This was a difficult decision and we did not take it lightly, nor was it the "safe way out" considering our families generally rely on our incomes to eat. We simply could not justify the risk of being a hub of infection given the often close-contact we have with our patients, who are predominantly elderly or otherwise medically fragile. -Me volunteering to support my hospitalists so that they can tend to the sickest of patients when the surge hits our area is also not the "safe way out." This is a short-term way for me to help out my local hospitalists, not a long-term career change. Anyone working in a hospital exposes themselves to a variety of contagious disease and this is especially poignant given the relatively high attack rate (this is an epidemiological term you can familiarize yourself with) of the SARS-COV-2 virus. I am, by all normal measures, not qualified to act as a hospitalist and I don't expect to continue this work once the need is no longer so extreme. But in these circumstances, our local hospital system has reached out to community doctors and healthcare staff to volunteer to support their already stretched-thin staff. They are preparing for what has happened in places like China and Italy, where surgeons are running emergency rooms and primary care docs are playing the role of hospitalists. So yes, in an emergency situation like this, when the healthcare system becomes flooded with massive surges of sick people, a doctor is in fact a doctor, as you say. In fact, several thousand Italian medical students will be staffing primary care doctor's offices while the attendings go to help in the hospitals. I can't understand how you have missed this, being in healthcare yourself. Your posts are scattered and I can't grasp your motivation or core argument here. The anger is not helping anyone.

Welcome to the 2020 Pinkbike Field Trip - Value Bike Edition
Freaking out about weight of a hardtail that’s designed to comfortably handle burly terrain? Don’t understand how anyone can focus so much on weight these days when our geo is so spot on, parts are durable and actually work, and bikes are so much more fun than they ever have been! Weight is such an out-dated focus-point for the type of riding that most (I think?) PBers like to do.

Wow man. As a family doc and a fellow human I am shocked by your anger and apparent spite. I wonder if you really mean to wish harm on others for political reasons or are you acting out under stress? I know that under these circumstances, I’m more on edge and reactive than I typically am at baseline. My clinic is closed (my decision) and I am looking at returning to hospitalist work, which I haven’t done since residency. These things are stressful for sure but I feel they are necessary in response to this unprecedented challenge. It sounds like you’re in healthcare too. Are you aware of what our fellow healthcare workers are experiencing in countries where this virus has fully manifested? This is not a you vs me situation.

Pinkbike Poll: How's the Riding Scene Where You Live?
F$&k yeah!!! We tripped through all of BC last summer and Nelson was a definite top 2 stop, tied only with Pemberton? Love the town, loved the fall-line tech trails with old-school vibe, just loved it all! Very nice locals and it seemed like everyone rips on a bike.

Velocirax Releases No Lift Vertical Bike Racks
@49thbiker: sorry just saw this. Nothing but good things to say about mine. It’s solid, does what it advertises and I haven’t had to think about it once after installing it...not sure what what else to say. Easy to load bikes once you get the hang of it.
