I work at a residential treatment center for middle school kids. I am also a dad and husband and as a result I spend more time thinking about riding than actually doing it.

Video: Kona Launches New Aluminum Hei Hei Bikes
@pinhead907: Right. It only applies to raw materials. Finished goods from outside the country aren't affected. Really what it means is if you build bikes here you pay more for your aluminum and have to charge more, but if you make them in Taiwan and bring in a finished frame you can keep the price down. He really flucked the American small business person with that one.

Not sector. Revelation. The blue one is the $3500, which is still not great, but it's a lot closer to ball park.

Ryan Leech On How the Risk Paradox Affects Mountain Bikers
@mikeSC: I pay about $1000 annually for a family of 6. I have great insurance, but a condition of my job is that I can wrestle a juvenile delinquent to the floor if need be. If I can't do that I can't work there safely. So they can let me go if I get injured.

Review: Crankbrothers' Klic Digital Floor Pump + Burst Tank
@WAKIdesigns: that's a reasonable response. I guess this is a niche that is filled differently in Urban locales, and outside of the US. Here we associate success with having a truck and a barn/garage.This pump has limited apeal in that kind of environment. Elsewhere storage is more limited and sound is more of an issue, but Muricans have trouble seeing the point of a product if it is not designed for us.

@nyhc00: If I could fly I'd do it wingsuit style. Flying single track would be fun too. And I would still bike. I suspect if you could actually fly biking would not excite you as much because the risk is gone from every crash, right? Screw up a huge sender and catch yourself before hitting the ground. . . For me it isn't about the risk. I'm not saying it's better. It is just a way to distinguish the difference. If I was invincible I think biking would not be less exciting.

@WAKIdesigns: But: https://www.grainger.com/product/2TWC2?cm_mmc=PPC:+MSN+PLA&s_kwcid=AL!2966!10!8973609785!1102900017635&ef_id=WpHQIAAABTcINzBj:20180613163654:s buy a $50 air tank. Pump it up with your existing floor pump and existing arms if that is your thing. Keep it in your trunk. Here's a 1 gallon option if 5 gallons is overkill: https://www.truckspring.com/products/Viair-1-Gallon-Air-Tank-two-14-NPT-ports__91010.aspx?msclkid=d1c9c01158b11d964b729b301027cc31

@MX298: True enough. But having been on medicaid before I can say it sucks. It is a stressful system that tries to kick you off all the time, that doctors hate because it doesn't pay the bill without a fight (having spoken to some doctors and my ex being a physio therapist who has to deal with getting $4 for every billable hour with a Medicaid patient) I feel like Medicaid is garbage. I propose a 2 tier system that does not cover most minor illnesses, but does cover major stuff. Evidence shows that when people have full coverage in the USA they tend to go to the doctor all the time for every little thing. (the Oregon Study) but that the big stuff is what scares everyone the most. Cover "El Cancer", but take your common cold and stuff it. There. World's fixed. Lets get back to bike stuff.

@cdmbmw and @NotNamed: not for me. Best feeling is the point of pleasure within my comfort zone. The kick from doing a big drop or double is mediocre. Seems like there are two categories of rider in this conversation: Those who push for the thrill and those who get their kicks more just from the ride.
