Oregon Will Be First US State to Tax Bicycles for Transportation Projects
@mikealive: Ummm.... I didn't reply because I've been at work all day. My quick lunch break comment highlighted that there are a load of reasons why people can end up homeless and it's not always due to a 'life choice' as was insinuated on here, so I'm not sure why I'm being singled out. Mental health is a huge issue here with little support (places like Riverview closing for good or bad.....First Nations persecution and the stripping of their culture via the likes of the Residential School program etc....).

@rivercitycycles: So for example having an abusive childhood which manifests as issues in later life is a 'life choice'? Okaaaay.

BC Bike Race 2017: Day 6 - Squamish
You've probably got to live in Squamish to find Leave Of Absence being described as 'technical gnar' somewhat amusing :) Awesome new addition to the network though, and a nice commute home from work!

Transition's New Speed Balanced Geometry
You're all wrong! Keith Bontrager did this circa 1989 :P

OneUp Components EDC Tool Now Available
@Loamhuck: Ignoring the official instruction which is to have the threaded part of the steerer above the stem anyway, unless you are a Gorilla you should only be tightening the stem bolts to generally 5Nm anyway. We installed one today and I can't see how strength could be compromised as the threads are pretty shallow anyway. The 2007 Specialized Enduro fork had the same system for a top tap with no issues and much deeper threads.

Enduro World Series Round 4 – Pit Walk
@IrishTom: I'm going to stick my neck out and suggest that the comment was made at this point because she co-hosted the video ;) I've seen a million positive comments about Peaty, Minaar, Hill, Barel etc over the years. What a weird thing to say.....

Magura MT Trail Brakes – Review
Like them or not, they've been making hydraulic brakes since circa 1990 so they are hardly new.

Tech Randoms – EWS Ireland 2017
@salespunk: I don't need to experiment (and who keeps their bike horizontal in a bike stand for days? Even when working on the bike the front end is generally dropped down somewhat), I've either done it, or seen it done thousands of times, including my own Reverb. I also happen to know one of the EWS race mechanics who's at the above race at the moment and he posts plenty of stuff on Instagram, building wheels, etc.....Not one photo of a dropper post being rebuilt. As for leverage, even with modern seat tube angles, when one lands on the saddle you are still exerting quite a bit of backwards force on the seatpost, unless you have a really weird riding still. I've seen enough bent and broken rigid posts in the last 20+ years to have a basic understanding of the forces at play. I could go on but this is just ridiculous LOL.....
