@RollinFoSho: You got it. Pretty much everything can be traced back to that. Read "Creature from Jekyll Island" for a good synopsis on centralized banking in the US and where it came from.

@zede: There's such a thing as reform - e.g. stop sending people to jail for victimless crime altogether, and make the punishment for thieves and other non-violent crimes, but where there is still a victim, be something like wage-garnishing for 10x the original amount. You can still be strict without sending people to prison, and you can still be strict and humane. Commiefornia is outrageous... that's why everyone is leaving (same with NY; you can google these stats), so they can move to sensible places.... and then presumably vote themselves into more idiocy, ruin that state, then jump ship again.... I digress

@jefe: a deer cam or two or something of the sort can help when that is the case. Many a fucker has been caught on camera and then it's only a matter of time until the authorities catch up. I know thieves are opportunists, but it helps when the idea is present that most of the community employs either a mean dog or Smith and Wesson (or both)... then many thieves won't want to roll their dice. I've lived in a few spots where it's common knowledge that any sort of potential asshattery is met with a cranky dude holding a 12 gauge, and that knowledge alone seemed to help deter thieves. There are some popular bumper stickers from a bike shop around my neck of the woods that say "We still hang bike thieves in Wyoming." Funny stickers, but there is definitely a lower tolerance for theft than most other places I'm familiar with. Part of it is cultural.... I have heard that in Japan, there is (or was in the recent past) effectively no theft, because their culture simply doesn't tolerate it, in any way. But I digress... @schulte1400 I feel ya. Plus, I bet most of your community watches each others backs and likely falls into the above category.

Pinkbike Poll: How Much Does a Bike's Climbing Performance Matter to You?
Depends what I am building the bike for... sometimes it matters a lot, especially if I am living/riding in an area with lots of fun, techy climbs. Other times, not at all, so long as I can pedal comfortably up an access road. I love my Patrol on teton pass, hated it for most of my riding on a trip to Pisgah (almost brought the hardtail, but I am recovering from a knee injury, so the FS was a safer bet)

First Ride: 2019 Canyon Neuron
@bwcyyc: Subarus have more axle to frame clearance than a standard pick up. If you add some stout SUV tires, they clear better than all of the new SUVs (I.e. excluding body on frame SUVs, only looking at the new stuff that can't be lifted whatsoever)

From The Top: Szymon Kobylinski, Founder of NS Bikes
I've always loved NS for their no frills attitude and making great, durable, well-priced products. Then I figured out who Szymon was (rockstar engineer bike enthusiast) and liked them even more. Psyched to see this interview, and I would definitely donate to a crowdsource fund to see him prove all the bullshit is, in fact, bullshit. @WAKIdesigns: I do agree with you that government funded research for bike designs is fucking stupid though
