Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
I'm going to start selling wrap-wrap so all you pansies can protect the finish of your bike-wrap.

Geoff Kabush's Race Diary From the Whiskey 50
Is that Jim Carrey in a beard chasing Geoff down? Maybe that's why G is yawning.

Vista Outdoor To Sell Bell, Giro, Blackburn, & Other Brands
@scvkurt03: Yep, and as with all things, the correct interpretations aren't always the simple ones. I sit on the board of a large, multi-national corporation which receives US government contracts. We have to pursue profits. If we don't, we lose operating capital and thus the ability to meet payroll. We also have to pursue op efficiencies, otherwise product sales end up losing us money, which equates to less jobs and less innovation. We also have to drive shareholder value, otherwise we lose shareholders which means we lose our treasury backing and ability to fund R&D and operating capital. We're in the game, as with most corporations I run into, because we're passionate about our services/products. But passion isn't enough to keep you in the game. This isn't a defense of Vista. I don't know their board. But anyone who wants to take a shot at them (yep, I said it) along these lines of thinking should probably first get to know their board and how it interacts with the c-suite of the sub corps in question. Sigh. This is NOT going to get me good rep.

Shit Happens - Opinion
You got it, Mike. Where I live, if you want drinking water you have to buy it, electricity comes on for a few hours per day, most people die before they get to 55 and if you have anything more than a headache you need to be medically evacuated. Not saying this because "...my risks are bigger than yours" but because it has taught me a valuable lesson: life is really fucking short and most people in the world aren't that surprised when it gets ripped from their hands (yes, they grieve, and yes, death is hard, but it's a sadly commonplace occurrence) because the schedule is out of their control. So I try like hell to make my future self proud; live in a way right now that my dying, broke-ass body can look back on and say 'yeah, man, that was fucking worth it.' Because everyone around me knows that future could happen in the next 5 minutes. It's taken me a while to get to this place in my head, and I'm not always there (coasting is still fun sometimes, and when I do get back to the US I can't deny that going to a squeaky clean Starbucks and gazing at my navel has a weird attraction) but I'm doing my best....
