Bike Boom Shows Signs of Slowing for Shimano & Thule
I wish we could post in-line images, because the Anakin/Padme meme would be golden here. Padme:”so prices will start dropping back to normal… right?” Anakin: stone faced.

Chris King Launches Range of Recyclable Carbon Wheels
61% of electricity generated in Utah is done burning coal. Unless the fusion fiber factory has a massive solar array, I imagine they’re still getting the majority of their juice from fossil sources. Tbf, that 61% is down somewhat from 75% in 2016. But still way too high. Utah is a beautiful state, but they elect some seriously terrible people.

@wmichul: There was that crazy double murder back in in 2019 there. Not MTB related. https://www.sfchronicle.com/crime/article/Man-jailed-for-fatal-stabbings-in-rural-San-Mateo-14027896.php

@Willikers: I like General Ed as a local alternative to JMP. Some days I just wan't to deal with people straddling the full width of the trail, people with headphones being totally oblivious etc.

@suspended-flesh: Leona was subject to a rash of car break-ins too. I wouldn’t put anything past this crew in terms of targets. JMP is just so easy for them due to fish in a barrel concentration.

@winkeyless: not the whole story, many cities in the Bay Area purposely restrict or fight against any new housing development. Here is an article with a good overview of the extent to which rich Silicon Valley cities go to kill any new housing: https://www.sfchronicle.com/politics/article/One-city-s-excuse-was-mountain-lions-Here-s-16907704.php “Mountain lion habitat” lol.

The bike jackers aren’t just keeping it to Oakland city limits, all of the East Bay is a target. This one was particularly sinister: https://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/video/6227048-berkeley-bikejacking-latest-in-spate-of-robberies-targeting-cyclists/

A fun, common nightly game we play in Oakland: “is that gunfire or fireworks?”
