Donald Trump... Narcissist in Chief!

So the latest John Oliver clip on Trump that came out a few days ago is nowhere to be found… anybody know what's up with that? I'm curious what people can and can't get away with when speaking of the Donald.

first world problems

Should be printed on the side of the pipe at some point…. but if it's hidden in the drywall good luck. Maybe look at the hot water tank area for a longer chunk of pipe.

If you do have it, start thinking about a repipe in your future.

Is "wolverine pipe" a plumber name for poly b?

I'm 6' and ride a large process 153 with a 125mm dropper. I have a quick release to raise and lower the seat every ride it sucks. As soon as I can justify that $600 for a 200mm post you can bet I am.

sam hill goes full enduro!

They didn't practise (At least in Gregs case.) rode all stages blind.

I think Minnar, Peat, Bruni, Dale and a couple others all rode it blind. Minnaar mentioned on IG it was to see how many of the privateers do those weekends.

First time back today in a couple yeas after I blew up on the Canadian open step down. Wicked day on the bike and great to get that monkey off my back. Brake bumps suck!

any BMX racers here?

No interest in racing for me, but I have a killer 20" BMX race bike that I use exclusively for pump track duties. I typically ride the BMX bike at least once a week. It is such a good workout and a great way to dial your lines and technique on the bike. Any mistake that is covered by your suspension and barely inflated knobby tires on the mountain bike will bite you in the ass on the BMX. :rocker:

My girlfiend (who is not into mtb or road biking at all) is loving it as well.

Watching a long time mountain biker take a 20" bmx on their first lap at the track is both amusing and terrifying as they hang on for dear life.

on tues night i watched this guy at the track Nate Berkheimer (sp) race which was rather mind-blowing. I then found out he is/was a serious pro at least at some point in his life. Anyways, was a pleasure to watch!

i tried my 29" hardtail once at Ridge and it just doesn't feel as fun at all. i plan to take my kid to abbotsford this winter, and hope to boot around with him with some cheap cruiser.

Nate was also a pro dirt jumper on the dew tour. Guy is seriously good on a bike.

I raced BMX from 12-19 and loved it. I tried to get back into it a few times over the years but I'd rather just go ride my bike on my own schedule these days. Kids develop riding skill so fast when you get them into racing. The best part IMO is almost everyone I grew up racing with also rode their bikes outside the track, usually at local jumps and skate parks and you turn into a very well rounded rider.

A lot of the top dogs in DH will have bmx racing on their resume at some time!

yeah but doing that all day sucks.. and getting hit with bugs sucks and sometimes rain.. lol I raised it 2" now its perfect.

Glad you got it sorted! I liked highway riding on my naked sv650 more than my gsxr as the bloody windscreen directs it straight at my head. Buffeting like crazy I tell ya!

Ross you're right, without the windscreen it'll just be off the dash. But at that point it will probably be hitting you in the chest and not the helmet which can be better

Get him on a GT or Saracen with those other goobers. Also I really hope a factory team picks up Miranda Miller for 2017!

stuff that makes you happy

Why the flat platform on the kicker and no case pad on the landing? Looks great though!

Making it in time to the toilet when I have to take a huge dunmp. Satisfaction doesn't get much better than that.

Also bikes, they're pretty neat I guess.

The Shank Thread

I've been on the lookout for a nice folder to not break the bank for some time now. A trip to wander around Cabela's last night had me leaving with a Kershaw Leek! Awesome little knife, exactly what I had in mind. I'm no knife expert but it feels like a quality knife and is bloody sharp out of the packaging.

I've also had a Milwaukee Fastback2 utility for almost a year now getting used a ton every day at work and it still feels like new other than some paint chips here and there, but I think that just adds character. If I lost it I'd be heading to the store to pick up another the same day.
