Re: 2021 - Full Suspension Bike Thread

i got it in Nakusp, they are good people there. there aren't a lot of Marin dealers around me (Nelson area). there was a (large) XR in Cochrane, AB, and the owner said the rest went really fast. seems to be a popular bike with the geometry changes this year. i have always tried to get a bike with some sort of canadian roots, but as a teenager in the early 90s i remember i used to lust over those marin hardtails back in the day. good enough for me.

Re: 2021 - Full Suspension Bike Thread

i just picked up a 2021 marin alpine trail 7, bone-stock. affordable but will replace parts as needed, most likely a set of wheels to start with.  the shop didn't have the alpine trail xr in stock and no ETA but i'm happy with this one

Re: Bad 80's TV

anybody remember the truly tasteless joke books in the 80s? me and my friends used to read these in the local w.h. smith at our mall.  super racist and sexist, dead baby jokes, all that stuff

Re: Bad 80's TV

sometimes i can't believe my parents let me watch the stuff i did when i was a kid...remember bizarre?  the origins of super-dave osbourne but also really off-colour stuff, maybe normal back then.  this shouldn't be in a bad 80s tv thread as i still think this show is hillarious

Re: Bad 80's TV

not sure if this was just an ontario thing, but fergie oliver who i remember from being a sportscaster for the blue jays, also did Just Like Mom, like a game show with kids...it's way overly creepy to look at this video i just googled about the show.

Re: What the HELL is everyone doing right now to occupy themselves? I'm going crazy...

we got it pretty good, we live in a semi-rural area in the kootenays, on an acre and a half. kids keep themselves busy by the river, trampoline, play with the chickens, video games, and on a rare occasion, school work. we ride to the store for treats but only i go in. i think this whole situation is good enough rationalization to finally build us a mini-ramp. i've modified my bike riding by just riding from home at places much less occupied

Re: The Hockey

i don't really have an opinion about this all, other than i'm glad remembrance day is a real thing at my kids school, where they have a ceremony and bring home crafted poppies, etc the week before.  i think his source point was a lot of people might be ignorant/indifferent to the poppy...but i dunno, i didn't buy one this year (not on purpose), but we talk to our kids about the day, and have our moment of silence.  just because you don't wear one doesn't mean much i don't think anyways

most of my posts here are links to propagandhi songs so here is another.

asbestos duct tape removal...

i'm asking this because i remember a thread awhile ago about asbestos.  

my situation is that i live in a 60s home with an oil furnace close to the same vintage, and the duct work is taped with asbestos tape.  i plan to remove the oil furnace and duct work and just rely on our wood stove.  the wood heat should travel better upstairs through the open vents.  i'm thinking, i can wrap the asbestos tape with normal duct tape, then remove the ducts by cutting it in pieces, leaving the taped joints in tact.  

does this sound stupid?  thanks

Re: Music

this is nsfw kinda stuff, and totally appeals to my hardcore punk side.  like really disturbing rap, but i find this guy can make some catchy choruses.  but yeah fucked up shit

Re: Bring me your rude and/or clever trail names...

placenta descenta in nelson...not crude, but i always thought kinda witty or at least unique.  no idea the origins

i read way back when that big money in fernie was named because the builder rolled his vehicle while driving up to work on it
