Magnus Manson Breaks Leg & Pelvis in Crash on Vancouver Island
@scotttherider: my dad had something similar. Probably could have been a candidate for knee replacement when he was 40 but he held off until he was 49 because they were unsure how long the replacement joints would last and they can only replace the replacement once. The original estimate was the first one might only last 15 years but he’s at close to 25 years now and the doctors have said it’s still holding up great.

@scotttherider: some kind of cartilage damage? That seems like the one area they haven’t really made much advancement in.

@vinay: I don't think rods and plates really speed up the healing. The bone is going to regenerate at whatever rate it regenerates at regardless of any plates or screws present. The rods and plates allow for better healing as they can realign and hold the broken bones in place, as well as provide support for the broken bones. This can often allow for a patient to be back using their leg/arm/whatever much quicker. Even if the bones aren't full strength just allowing someone even limited use of that body part (as opposed to a cast) allows the to at least maintain some strength and motion on the area meaning they can be back and full strength much faster once the bones do fully heal.

@cmcrawfo: Yea often times in cases where they have to go in and reconstruct the bones its the damage they do to the surrounding tissue just getting in there that can hinder the rehab process.

Video: The Story of GT's Suspension Development in 'Full Travel' Ep. 5
They are, I first caught episode 4 last week and then went back and watched the first three. If you haven't watched all the others I would recommend it.

Crankworx Whistler Cancelled for 2020
@rosemarywheel: Your comments pretty much illustrates why there is so much misinformation going around. While there is some general truth to what you are saying your anecdotal "I heard from a friend" type knowledge just isn't correct. This type of information very rarely is. The CARES act did provide an increase in payments from Medicare for Covid patients but it was only 20%, not well over 1000% increase like you (or your friend suggests). And honestly all it takes is a little common sense to realize how dumb that would be in the first place. Why would medicare pay 10x more just based on what is written as the cause of death. The hospital keeps very detailed records of what treatment a patient receives and for how long, and thats what the payment are based on (covid or not). Why would the government ever pay so much extra? Also, even if they were paying a 10x premium do you think its not highly regulated? Do you think hospitals would just that freely and openly engage in medicare fraud?

First Look: ShockTune is a Free Suspension Setup App
@GorgeousBeauGaston: I just look at the pictures on pinkbike from the pits at world cups where riders have "data acquisition" setups on their bikes, and how robust they are. Sensors all over the place, wires everywhere, etc. Then see someone trying to do it with an iphone strapped to the handle bars and have to wonder what the gap is. If you take the setups that WC teams are using as the highest standard of gathering useful and meaningful data, how close can using a simple phone get. Not that it has to be to the WC standard for regular people, but is it even close?

@makripper: I agree, phone GPS systems work great, but I’m taking about the accelerometer.

Is the accelerometer in a common cell phone even sensitive enough to measure meaningful data? I mean there i a split second delay just for an iphone to realize that I turned the screen sideways. Is it really capable of capturing suspension movement that matters? "minimizing the extremes" is likely something anyone with any experience would be able to do just be feel.
