Pinkbike Poll: Where Do You Shop for Bike Parts?
@GumptionZA: Agree, and even then, the tools have to be outrageously expensive for me to not buy it. Headset press $75-$150, cost of a headset install: $40. Do it twice and the tool is paid for, no brainer. Most tools seem to be the cost of just a few services. Needless to say, my personal tool stash is getting pretty sweet.

Race & Accessibility in the Mountain Bike Community
@WalrusRider: you conclude your statement with "I think the police brutality issue is essentially a myth when you actually examine the statistics." You clearly haven't looked up the stats, hence you saying "I think" So let me enlighten you. I found an article from a couple years back on Forbes.com about a scientific study compiled from US police stats, published in the journal Injury Prevention, a journal published by the British Medical Journal, which has impeccable reputation for cutting edge peer reviewed research. I'll include links below so you can double check their legitimacy. But for now let me post some spicy stats up in here. Unlike you thinking you know something, I actually went and looked it up. And awwwway we go... -Every day police officers kill 3 people and injure 150 that need medical treatment at a hospital -1 out of every 13 people killed by a firearm in the U.S., intentionally or unintentionally, were killed by a police officer. -1 in 11 people killed by firearms in all homicides and law enforcement legal interventions combined were killed by the police. That’s 9% of all gun-related homicides and legal interventions. -1 in 11 people who die from law enforcement interactions were unarmed. -Out of all homicides for all ages and races resulting from any form of assault, with any weapon, 1 in 15 people, or 6.5%, die as a result of a police interaction. -Of all injuries leading to an emergency department visit or hospitalization, for all people of all ages, 1 in 30 is inflicted by the police. That’s 3.3% of all injuries requiring medical attention. yes, you read that correctly 3.3% OF ALL INJURIES IN A HOSPITAL ER ARE FROM POLICE of course this data is open to some bit of interpretation and i'm sure that there are some methodological holes in it somewhere, but as for now I haven't seen a better study on the matter. Cheers, and here's to being more open minded, and maybe using the resources available to every one of us here. Remember, this is the information age. You can find out the answer to just about anything if you take the time to look. https://injuryprevention.bmj.com/content/23/1/27.full https://www.forbes.com/sites/tarahaelle/2016/07/26/1-in-13-people-who-die-from-gunshots-were-killed-by-police-with-blacks-at-higher-risk/#6b65b203e6d8
