not that i was attracted to YT bikes before, but i find their endless seizure inducing ads on every bike site worth reading so fucking aggravating, that i wouldn't even take one if it was given to me for free.  YT if you're reading this- please fuck right off you douche bags.

That type of risky behaviour will lead you with a compromised system for sure.

At worst, you should be using uBlock Origin.  At best, you'd use that with NoScript.

Anyone on the forum interacted with YT Canada (JM) recently? Luckily I haven't had the need but curious what response times are like after the move to Kelowna... or was it Kamloops.

as a public service announcement:  i'm not always the sharpest user of the computer and this advice above was a game changer.  uBlock Origin is an easy fix to a lot of the dreck that poisons these community websites. the user experience has jumped dramatically with this simple browser filter.  no more insane ads jumping and whirling about.

Hmm,I don't think this was exactly the reaction they were hoping for... 🤣

Quoted because I love the wording so much.🍺

New 2018 YT's are out on the website. Same frames for Jeffsy and Tues but new frame colours and build kits. Prices are a couple hundred dollars cheaper across the board. Looks like they are waiting to announce a new Capra still.

They offer frame only yet?

I use uBlock as well. But you guys are whitelisting your favourite MTB site(s), right? And if not, I'd love to hear directly if we've been running ad types that you find offensive. We try to keep a pretty clean reading environment around here, but some ads are necessary.

Nope, not part of their business model which depends on doing massive OEM parts orders with Shimano, e13, Fox, RockShox etc. Also why they don't offer customization options instead focusing on limited SKU's with high volumes.

Pete: have had NSMB whitelisted on uBlock, no issues with ads.
