Win It Wednesday: Enter to Win an NS Bikes Frame
How suitable is a dirt jump frame for a kids bike? Are the frames themselves particularly heavy or overbuilt? I imagine that the head angle is a bit steep but an angleset may sort that? (Clearly asking so I can later use kids bike for me...)

Review: Rotor 2INpower MTB Crank
@Veloscente: You're more than likely right, but I don't need absolute accuracy, just consistency. As long as I'm in the ballpark area I can make a judgement (obviously the more accurate the better though!). When there was a PB article on (iirc) $1 chips giving power readings not too long ago, in sure that there is some room to reduce prices for the amateur. There will still be the expensive high end market products available for pros and people who can justify it of course.

Review: Rotor 2INpower MTB Crank
I've started training with power (on the turbo) through lockdown and it works so well. I've made massive gains in fitness and power. If power meter cranks were reasonably priced I'd have them in a heartbeat, just so I could match in my outdoor and indoor riding. I can't justify this though - when the difference is around £100 come back and I'll be first in line! Maybe in a couple of years the price will have dropped...

Video & Photo Story: Cai Grocott Explores his Struggles with Mental Health in 'Talk'
The amazing thing about talking with people about mental health is that there are so many people out there who have experienced it, whether directly or indirectly. It's fantastic that the stigma associated with mental health is being challenged, and the world is now a better place for it. Look after each other in these crazy times everyone - having a chat makes everything better!

Oh, and I don't do the clapping thing, but I did make a charitible donation to them. Each to their own though!

Video: How MTB Pros Are Dealing with COVID-19 Around The World
@jaame: I agree with a lot of what you've said, but I disagree with diminishing the bravery of frontline staff (nhs or otherwise). They go to work and run the risk of contracting a fatal disease on a daily basis, and I imagine that people who work in the medical profession are aware of the risks better than most - I know a few of them and these are scary times for them. As you said they could call in sick to avoid going to work (most will be paid regardless) but the vast majority don't despite the lack of ppe available. Yes, some will be doing it for financial motives, but there will also be a significant number (I'd argue the majority) who are doing a job that scares them because it is the right thing to do. I think we are currently at 7 deaths of NHS staff in the Uk at present and I've no doubt that this will be at the forefront of many key workers minds as they go to work.
