The thing is.... you've now left everyone wondering, "Wait, does Perry actually own that setup?"

Its sufficiently brassy, steampunkesque, and deeply nerdy. (and, I mean all that as a compliment)

Whoa, whoa. Gravel? Easy there, Paint Killer.

If you aren't live streaming while you're doing it, are you even trying?

But will it fit my pour over setup? Its essential people know what a snob I am when I stop for trailside coffee. Nothing less than this setup, my digital scale, thermometer, and MSR Reactor will do. 

I'm currently carrying it in a fair trade vegetable-dyed alpaca leather bag hand stitched in the mountains of Peru, but could be swayed.

Not just fashion. Resale value.

Monday evenings, too. Everyone smashed themselves on the weekends and takes it as a rest day.

Thanks Fit-Santa!

Having worked in the Yukon for a few years, I love it deeply up there. The terrain, the people, the wildlife. 

But man are we ever spoiled for trails, and nearly endless riding season, here in SW BC.

"Everything is better than it was 20 years ago" - yep. Agreed. Totally. Helmets are way better, and way more comfortable. 

And, we understand more about concussion, TBI, and CTE than we used to. Absolutely. 

But that doesn't mean the statements like, "MIPS’ position on evaluating the possibility of a concussion resulting from a crash is that it is a highly variable event and unique to the individual impact and rider physiology. However, rotational motion itself can be measured objectively, so that is the metric MIPS can actually report and address," aren't textbook McNamara Fallacy. 

"I don't think any helmet manufacturer is making a claim that "these devices will save necks and brains", I'd disagree, based on this from Wavecel....  

> SLIP helmets significantly reduced the probability of sustaining AIS 2 brain injury compared to CONTROL helmets in all impact scenarios, with reductions ranging from 32% to 91%. CELL helmets significantly reduced P (AIS 2) compared to CONTROL helmets in all impact scenarios, with reductions ranging from 81% to 98%.

Thanks for working to saving our lives! (I mean, literally.)

Uncle Dave - Poorly Fitting Helmets and Junk Science - April 4, 2019, 9:58 a.m.

That's my point?

"No two crashes are the same and no two people are the same, so the risk of concussion is a near-impossible claim to make. However, rotational motion itself can be measured objectively, so that is the metric MIPS can actually report and address."
