Ask Pinkbike: Long-Travel vs Short-Travel Trail Bike, Measuring Fork Stiffness, Heavy Tires or Inserts?
@pcledrew: ...some of the rockiest rocks I've ever seen. Brilliant!! ;) I have seen some of those round my way too, you'd recognize them instantly, they are just so damn rocky. I have named one of them Rocky McPointyRockface..

Hiker to Claim Self Defence After Right of Way Dispute Stabbing
@therevfryslim: Me too; I have a fear of living in the US because of the guns, and as a Brit who lived in the UK for nearly 30 years, I was genuinely surprised by what my US mates were saying in that shuttle bus, but all of them were quite genuine in what they were saying. Their main point was their feeling that things escalate a LOT more quickly in London, than it ever did back where they grew up in the US and they put that down to the "maybe someone is carrying" thought back in the US.... Anyways, all interesting thoughts. Have a good day!

Hiker to Claim Self Defence After Right of Way Dispute Stabbing
@snl1200: @TotalAmateur ; A Brit here living in Japan who has had the pleasure of riding with many from both Canada and the US. A few years ago, I was in a shuttle and during a conversation, some guys from the US and I were talking about life living in the UK when someone said that they “...always felt more scared out drinking in London than in the US” and it turns out it was because of all the knives that people might be carrying, rather than guns. The feeling of most of the Americans who had lived in London was that they saw so many more people pick / start fights in London than in the US. They suggested that there is a fear lacking in London; that being no fear that someone may be carrying a gun. They said that fear does exist for them in the US and this fear tends to make people more likely to de-escalate, or at least be wary of picking a fight. They all agreed they felt more likely to get hurt in London. I am not saying any one way is better than another regarding gun ownership Or which weapons are more dangerous in the hands of unhinged folks, I just thought it was a really interesting insight to someone like me who hasn’t lived in a society with guns, and that you both might be interested in the anecdote.

Video: Spoof Campervan Advert Hints at a New YT Capra
@Riwajc: Your comments here made me go and look up your posting history... I see. I think it would it be fair to say that your comments over the past two years have been similar in tone to your comments here. On this page you have resorted to calling people (or groups of people) -moron -some dudebro with the intelligence of a barely formed cro-magnon -having the maturity of one. You have name called, criticized riders, products and companies and / or their decisions in 21 of your 26 most recent posts. Whether you appreciate the opinions of others or not, at least can we all agree to wish everyone a nice day. Have a good day Sir. I hope you can see it to be civil to others where possible.
