Three Tears For The Too-Fresh Retro Rigs - March 14, 2022, 12:12 p.m.

Saw one for sale a few years ago for cheap and missed it by 15 mins.  Some lady in West Van had it in her garage it was mint.

Question is... does anyone here have a Cook Bros Racing bike? The Cove guys rode/sold them in the 80's. Think the other pre MTB bike I recall was the Marushi. Would love to have one of those.

Where Have All The Chin Bars Gone? - Jan. 12, 2022, 10:50 a.m.

I wore it all the time in the beginning. Less now for sure but like I said, I def use it when doing a Ladies or Boundary Lap where I know the risk is higher. Quick ride up Breamar usually not. Upon reading your piece I think I will wear it more. Weighs nothing on the fanny pack and takes 30 seconds to put on.  I really don't even notice it while decending so not wearing it is kinda silly. Did a Cypress ride up BLT with a new group before the snows a while back, and I was pretty much the only one without my chinbar. Think out of 8 of us 2 didn't have one. So maybe the usage is going up among riders?... will take more notice when the snow melts.

Three of my front teeth are crowns from sport injuries. Have had a few concussions which have affected me in later life. Keeping those injuries in the past is the best way to go forward in this stage of my life.

1) Going fast

2) looking good.

Have the Bell super air R one. Have to say the protection isn't as high as my DH helmet but it has saved me a couple times from smashing my face on the ground. Problem is I don't always use it, depends on the ride I am doing. Which ya I know is a silly way to roll. 

A wet janky ride on the menu? The chinbar is strapped on my fanny pack for sure. Loamer day? not so much.

Love it.

Or the solution is just don't use strava on loamer days.

Just got back last week form there. Place rocks

NiteRider Lumina OLED 800 and Pro 1400 Race - Dec. 8, 2017, 12:56 p.m.

Yes I think it works great, pumps tons of light. Then again I was running those crappy magic shine lights until I bought this. Which is a game changer

I bought this combo, have the cordless on the bars. No issues with cables, I would by far put the brighter cabled light on the helmet.

Frog lady save us.

"Barbed Liar" Skips Trial - Oct. 18, 2017, 1:49 p.m.

Are you kidding? He is dominating the Autobahn as we speak.

Think this guy is a few sandwiches short of a picnic. Nothing like skipping the country and then saying where you are. This will follow him everywhere, enjoy dipshit.

Yakima Racks Dr. Tray and High Road - Sept. 28, 2017, 7:35 a.m.

You flip the one of the roof racks the other direction. Then there is no bar rub.
I have 2 Yakima high rollers for the top, a 2x One Up on the back ( which is off right now.)
One issue not pointed out is the rear license plate is completely obscured by the rack in the up position in these pics. My plate on my car is visible, another reason I went with the one up...anyone had a hassle from the cops?

Both Systems have their pros and cons as stated.  Except for the fuel economy issue, and a muddy roof in winter. I find the roof system to almost be easier for local rides. Then I can sit on the bumper of the hatchback to get geared up etc. For road trips the platter.

Dear Uncle Dave: Why is My Local Mechanic Such a Dick? - Aug. 1, 2017, 1:04 p.m.

Its really funny how shops run in high season. They are always slammed and takes forever to get a big job done. Yet they only work 8 hour days for the most part when it is super busy, which always blows my mind. More bikes repaired= more revenue + happy customers who support your shop.

Talking E-bikes With Uncle Dave - July 27, 2017, 7:48 a.m.

This argument reminds me of the SUP vs Surfers out in the break. Paddle has an advantage classified as a watercraft etc.
I'm sure it will work itself out in that I would never be caught dead surfing on an SUP like I would never use an electric bike.

I don't see these bikes destroying the trails, I just see way more search and rescue calls for injuries. Just like watching an SUP'er get drilled into the reef because they were able to paddle out with less effort.  Maybe that's why the trails on fromme are getting dumbed down? To keep the injury percentage down when a newbie faceplants on the first ride ever on an mtb  down seventh?
