Re: Bike frame/parts drought 2021

On this note, is anyone aware of much in the way of stock landing either at shops or through the direct sellers?  YTs stock in Canada is dismal - mostly XL and XXLs and Izzos.  Commencal seems to be mostly taking pre-orders for February.  Forbidden seems to have stock landing shortly and a few XTs for sale.  I've heard Rocky has stuff coming but chatting with my local, it's mostly spoken for already - so it seems. 

What else is looking good for incoming stock in the trail or enduro categories?

Re: Grade III AC Separation - your experience?

I tore mine badly (I forget the grade) in the WBP, but I lived in New York City at the time.  I went to visit a young hotshot orthopedic surgeon in Manhattan and I'll never forget what he said: I'm an othorpedic surgeon! I get paid to cut people open! I love doing it! ... But I can't recommend you get surgery for this. 

And I think he was right.  I did a ton of physio the first 10 weeks and went riding that fall.  Since then I ride semi-regularly and I rarely think about my shoulder. Only when I have to sleep on a hard mattress, and carrying a large pack when skiing.  No regrets on not having surgery. I think it could be better than it is, but I do almost nothing to take care of my body, other than ride and ski - no weights or other training, and I'm sure I would benefit from it if I did so...  Maybe when my kids are older.
