Industry Digest: Trek's Direct to Consumer Box, Low Salaries, Sea Otter & More
Wrenched on bikes for 13 years in top bike shops on two continents: in short - it gets you f*ck all. Insanely stressful, non-liveable pay and you're threated like sh*t. My advice to young mechanics: it's a dead end job, don't waste your time on it, go do a trade school and get a proper degree: it's free. Yes, you've heard me correct, free: pay about 950$ for a year of training up front; get it back in full after passing each year exam, plus completion grants and tax write-offs on top of that. Finishing last year of a Cabinet Maker program: couldn't be happier. Pay is good, benefits, much less stressful, no grease in sight. Last thing: if you're ok as a bike mechanic - you will pass this program with ease. But, this is just my experience...

WTB Launches Range of TCS Tire Sealant
For those looking for a tubeless rim tape of any width that's available now and anywhere you live: 3M White Duct Tape. Perfect thickness, fibre reinforced, clean-looking, laid mine in 2 layers. 6.75$ CAD @ Home Depot. Had it on my wheels for 1.5 years now, minimal pressure loss of 5-6psi / month (which is twice as good as tube setup).

North Shore Billet Announces New Canadian Made Flat Pedal, The Daemon
Some things cost more than money. You can have all the money you want, but what good are they, if what you want doesn't exist? The older you get, the more you realize: if you like something or want something, grab it as soon as you see it - that extra money you pay for it will pay off later, in a form of knowing that you got EXACTLY what you wanted. In this case (and in case of Devinci that's also made in Canada) - I think it's worth it. I also think it's baller as F to even be able to buy components made in MTB Mecca!
