Movies For Your Monday
Dakota Roche is so enjoyable to watch riding. Some of the little things he works into a line really sets his riding apart - like that nose manual jib thing up stairs in his vid with Dan Lacey.

Pinkbike Poll: What's the Most You'd Spend on a Mountain Bike?
answer dependent on exchange rate.... buying bikes in CAD had a lot more bang for my buck a few years ago.

Must Watch: Reece Wallace Goes HUGE for Rampage
@MrReddington: This actually gets my goat. it happens here as well. We don't have private insurance so a lot of non-critical care isn't covered. We usually get a pretty nice discount from service providers for not being insured... which simply proves how much friggin waste and profit there is in the insurance industry. Maybe cut them out and charge what it actually costs to provide the care?

Video: Kirt Voreis & His Drone Buddy
@showmethemountains: Absolutely. The fact that an MD was his only walk-in option is one of if not the key underlying problem. Universal healthcare in this country hasn't quite figured out the mental side of health quite yet, and some provinces are further behind than others. Buddy just happens to live in one of the most out of date areas.

Ask Pinkbike: Bikes for Smaller Riders, & Saddle Suggestions
The primary reason I wear a chamois isn't padding but for moisture control. They're designed to wick moisture well away from the skin to minimize irritation due to moisture. Easy to illustrate, rub your hands together when super dry and compare to rubbing them together when moist and clammy. The padding is nice for longer rides, but the moisture control is the primary value of a chamois, imho. I sweat like crazy... no chamois on a long sit down ride is almost a guaranteed sore taint for a few days.

@wpplayer18: Is there a difference? clinically, yeah. But really, who cares? Everyone is so caught up in the labels around mental health - probably because there remains such stigma. It's stupid. Countless times I've heard shit like "oh, he's not depressed, he can get out of bed in the morning and get shit done". Just 'cause a person isn't crying under their covers doesn't mean they aren't feeling somewhat unwell mentally. When I have the sniffles people around work generally express condolences. Nobody (except for ultra douches) holds back and says, "oh, it's just allergies, you're not actually sick". Mental health, like physical health (why we draw a distinction is beyond me) ranges widely along a spectrum, labelling, categorizing and the like only leads to stigmatizing and isn't good for anybody. The point is, we all, or at least most of us, go through periods of poor mental wellness. Some push through it, by burying or managing, others don't. One of my best buds just about when over the edge this year. He desperately struggled to find professional help because he didn't fit into the "classic" definitions of mental sickness. He actually had an MD tell him that if he admits to being suicidal or makes a threat against a member of his family he can get him help asap, otherwise there were limited options for a well-to-do middle aged man who was simply struggling to cope with all the things life threw at him in a short span of time. The flip side being if he did declare either of those feelings he'd be institutionalized and treated somewhat like a criminal. That's fucked; we really need to open our minds to different perspectives on mental health. In the meantime, if we know someone who struggles the best thing we can do is encourage them. I've been there, caught up in life and not wanting to go through the mundane steps to go for a ride - yeah, even when its as simple as putting on shoes and spinning down the road - but my buddy is persistent and keeps opening the door. He makes it easy, offers to pick me up, is flexible in his ride times... gives me less excuses. It works, I get out for a ride, and feel a shitload better for days afterward. I dunno who I'd be without my "drone buddy". So forget the labels, just be a drone buddy. Somebody in your life will thank you for helping them get out for a ride.
