2020 Sea Otter Classic Cancelled, Virtual 'Sea Otter Play' Event Announced for September
@pistol2ne: Couple things you might want to understand before you start saying the only reason people are freaked is because of the higher number of confirmed cases. First while there is more extensive testing we will see more confirmed cases no doubt. Until recently the news (all networks) was reporting only confirmed cases. The problem is, and what needs to be reported more, is the percent positive rate which is going up in areas that opened early. That means if we are testing 1000 people @ 3% positive one day and then 2 weeks later testing 2000 people @ 6% that ratio shows more people are getting it. You could test a million people in one day and while you would get a higher number no doubt, the number is meaningless without the percentage increase. What broader testing offers is a better view of where groups of people are getting sick and it allows regions to isolate small outbreaks. We don't have the capacity to do this by any means but if everybody got tested once a week we could have WAY more accurate data about what can be open and what needs to stay quarantined. Think of it as graph with x y coordinates you can't represent the data without both a rise and a run.

MTB on a Budget: Where to Spend & Where to Save on Mountain Bike Clothing - Part 1
Big one that drives me crazy is lights. I'm always amazed when there's a high-end-brand-x bike light that costs $200+ when you could go on Amazon and get a comparable one for much MUCH less. You are literally paying for a name, plus many of the cheaper lights have high quality CREE LED's. I see the same thing with older generations and off-roading who will only buy direct from the retail store and figure 'well it's the most expensive, it's gotta be the best'.

MTB on a Budget: Where to Spend & Where to Save on Mountain Bike Clothing - Part 1
@Boissal: There's a running store called RoadRunner here in southern california that has their own brand of UPF sun shirts that I use all the time for regular trail riding that are about $20 a shirt. Any shirt that's 'made' for MTB will easily start at $40. Glad to hear someone else has found how good/affordable they are!

@RayDolor: I'm being sarcastic. The idea that going against recommended health guidelines makes you brave is kind of like riding without a helmet.

@endlessblockades: Yeah I learned about it on John Krasinski's SGN. Now those tips are frosted because they've been touched by angels! In all seriousness he's a great guy and yes don't judge based on looks alone.

Who knew that balls were all that was needed? Cancer: you just need balls. Diabetes: you just need balls. Alzheimers: you just need balls.

I was going to make a Guy Fieri joke but found out amid all this pandemic craziness he's donated tons of money in COVID19 relief. Not all soul patches are found on d-bags, put a pair of white rim sunglasses on and well there's no saving you now.

@maxyedor: I've heard it's for insurance reasons, but Snow Summit bike park could really be open for almost 9 months out of the year 'weather wise'. I think it's just more affordable for them to operate during peak summer months when people will be up there for summer activities. Ski resorts in general are ghost towns in the late spring and fall.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 8 - Do We Need an Even Larger Wheel Size?
This is the problem the bicycle industry, bikes last much longer than they used to so manufacturers need a way to get more sales. Solution: make the current standard irrelevant. It is a known fact that going from 26" to 27.5" was just a marketing ploy. Now 29" with a revised spoke bracing angle needed to happen and made 29" wheels just as strong as their 26" predecessors. Boost has made 27.5/29 much stronger as it doesn't need as much dishing by centering the hub flanges within the rim. It's frustrating as a consumer and I do think sometimes it is just a money grab situation but you can't deny bikes have improved vastly over the last 10 years. I think it's one of those for every 4 innovations a manufacturer changes something that actually makes bike tech better there's 1 step back that didn't need to happen.

Are you sure you're not an ex-pat from the US living in Denmark? I mean I know a lot of Northern European countries have issues institutionalized racism but your comment sounds very American.
