Cam Zink Potentially Out of Rampage With Dislocated Shoulder
Yep, same for me. 9 dislocations in a year and a half. Was so loose by the end that it would go out diving into a pool or even in my sleep. Surgery + rehab was 4 months, but that was late 90s.. I imagine the procedure may have improved by now. On the bright side, 20 years later I still have 95% original mobility and strength, don't even give ridong a second thought. So glad I got it rebuilt back then! Hope Cam gets the chance to het it repaired and do some proper rehab on it, lots more miles left to ride for that guy.

First Ride: The 2019 Cannondale Habit is Shockingly Normal
Worked in a shop that sold Norco. Having seen their manufacture quality, I'd never buy one. I can't count the number of times we had to call them because a brake mount was welded on slightly off angle. Carbon rear ends seemed to be the next issue. Their DH rig seemed pretty reliable, but the Sight and Range had problems. --I agree with you though, their sizing/geo reasoning is spot on.

Rocky Mountain Has 160 Bikes Stolen From Container
@ATBScott: Yep, exactly this. And to hit 35% you are typically needing to commit to a sizable pre-season order with a specific brand. Otherwise it's in that 25-30% range. Rent, utilities, payroll, etc and you're thankful that your good customers bring ya a 6 pack every now and then, because some months it's verrrry tight. Yeah, 6k mountain bikes seem pretty absurd, but people have to remember those aren't going out the door 52 weeks a year.. some days you've only made $120 on that $500 city bike, but you keep at it for the love of cycling. I got out of bike shops about a year ago, but still support the hell out of the good ones. Best of luck to ya man, and thanks for keeping the doors open for us!

Video: Aggy Rides an eMTB in Kona's 'Your Brain on E'
Not for nothing, I'm 40-ish and ride with people in their 50s who drop the hammer on climbs and humble me often... but I get what you're saying. Seems like the bike companies are reeeally trying to 'rad' these ebikes up to the wrong audience.

Review: Fox Live Valve Suspension
@stevemokan: Yes, key point here is 'imagine' as it surely does not perform as advertised in all situations. It would need more than accelerometers to consistently deliver what people in the comments believe it is capable of doing.

@pacificnorthwet: Ayyyye.. Transition donates Processes? That's some cool PNW bro-bro stuff to rep Kona Processes in the demo fleet, good of them to donate them off when they are done with them! (Ain't autocorrect a b*tch :D )

@EKrum: So whose responsibility is it to start a 'community' to make a person feel welcome? Where does the onus lie in catering to, in this case, your wife's specific needs? If she's so put off by the conversations being had by strangers or a 'scantily clad woman' sticker, she by all means has the right to spend her time elsewhere. There's group rides around here that I don't attend because I don't like the people in the group--should *they* be the ones needing to change based on my feelings? That's absurd. People, of all ages, can be a bit crass, loud or otherwise off-putting, in all manner of public situations. Learning how to enjoy your day despite this is called being a well-adjusted adult. Grow up.

Rocky Mountain Launches New Thunderbolt Alloy
@Poulsbojohnny: You realize that a company doesn't close the first year they are not profitable, yeah? I get what you're saying, but a company can operate in the red for years before actually having to pack it in (or sell to a parent company, like Niner's recent move). I'm sure Intense is staying afloat, but they aren't Trek, Giant, or even Santa Cruz.
