Athletes Now Need to be Fully Vaccinated Against COVID to Compete in France
@mattmach7: the virus doesn't float freely...it's inside of water droplets, which are gigantic because they are composed of millions of water molecules each, and why an N95 stops them no problem

Video: Bikepacking on a $60 Budget with Tom & Christina
You're not going to be hitting jumps on a fully laden bike. you get to camp, unload everything, set up, then you can do day trips out from your base camp, which is in a spot you wouldn't normally be able to start from But not every trip has to be about shredding. Bikepacking gets you to places that backpacking would take twice as long to get to.

Video: Salsa's New Blackthorn Trail Bike - First Look
@btjenki: and before manufacturers did this, and frames were breaking a lot more often, people were complaining nonstop about frames breaking more often.

Cane Creek Announces the DB Kitsuma Shock
@VorsprungSuspension: that's good to hear. I sold my coil cs before encountering any issues, but the coil il would clunk on every rebound stroke of the shock, like the oil was cavitated by the compression stroke. The first time I sent it in to be replaced they had never seen anything like it on that shock, and the second time I sent it in to be replaced a few months later with the same issue they were seeing in a bunch of bikes, but still didn't know what was causing it. Because of the several month period where they were saying that my issue was probably not the shock and that it was unique I tore down my entire bike thinking it was a linkage issue or the bearings or something. I replaced all the bearings and lubricated everything, I replaced a bunch of other components none of it helped. More than the money, I spent so much time trying to troubleshoot something that couldn't be troubleshooted. It just didn't feel good realizing that I was basically a product tester for this new product. Like how did they not do enough testing to discover this issue before putting the shock on the market?

Cane Creek Announces the DB Kitsuma Shock
@OGTallPaul: same, I had 3 different model CC shocks (DB inline, DBcoil IL, and finally the coil CS) over the course of a few years. the first 2 were in and out of warranty service constantly. customer service was fantastic, but i wasn't happy with just how much i had to use the customer service. still a fan of their headsets, but i doubt i'll ever buy another of their shocks switched to a DVO topaz specifically because it can be fully serviced at home, i'm done sending stuff away for a couple weeks at a time.

@privateer-wheels: thanks for the info! wish i had known about this sooner, could have saved a lot of time. for anyone wondering, the name of these seems to be "DT Swiss Squorx Nipple Driver" looks like they come in different lengths. are the longer ones just for deep rims or something? I only build mountain wheels so i'm assuming i can just use a shorter one
