Nathan Cirillo's girlfriend speaks out. I wonder if anyone will listen to her.
To get back to the purpose of this thread I think the nutter that started shooting up Ottawa had more in common with the Columbine killers than anyone else. Just a crazed and confused mad man looking for a reason to shoot people.
Yet we'll spend billions more on surveillance and security and nothing extra on mental health, poverty and addiction.
Zehaf was not mentally unstable according to VPD which held him in custody for 66 days on robbery charge. He was deemed by Dr's in vancouver via VPD to be mentally fit.
Quit being so emotionally reactive and let the facts present themselves. This was a terrible day for our country as well as for some friends and family members of two men. Heroes stepped up to try and help make a difference and some succeeded in saving many lives
No need to make it worse with useless drama. There are too many in this country with this emotionally reactive attitude that will only weaken us as a nation.
You are welcome to go Syria and see how much they like you. I will pay the plane fare.
Had a friend spend a few months there just before the rebellions against Assad started. He was treated very well by the large percentage of good people there who are not extremist.
People think I'm stupid to downhill mountain bike. I've been in stall 6 or 7 at the Whistler clinic a number of times. I once came to conciousness there and immediately said, "Oh hi Dr. Remple".
I think gun-lust isn't healthy.
Am I a hypocrite?
You only hurt yourself on your bike.
I just wanted to know if you were committed to that ultra short length and if ergonomics might get weird for a taller rider. These aren't unreasonable questions.
I am completely commited* to the ultra short length
- I race BMX, I'm 5'8" and ride and 18". I have about 5-7" of seatpost showing.
I know you're tall so I get your concern when climbing with short CS.
but i think you're going at this wrong. you're interested in a 29er AM hardtail, and you know you want longish chainstays. so why not look around and find a bike that has them, rather than fixating on the one that clearly doesn't and complaining about it?
here's a partial list of what is out there to help you get started:
- canfield nimble nigh and yelli screamy
- niner ros 9
- banshee paradox
- transitions transam 29
- chromag surface and rootdown
- 2souls quarterhorse
- ragley bigwig
- trek stache
- reeb somethingorother
- surly krampus
BUT Canfields have short chainstays as well though. ROS 9 is also shortish
I have a Honzo and really enjoy it. 140mm fork that drops to 120mm. 1X10 with 30t NW front chainring and shadow+ rear der. Have it built up semi light but the frame is pretty portly and I didn't go light on the wheels and tires. Comes in around 28 lbs.
I really enjoy the bike. It's fun on all types of terrain and corners and manuals like a big BMX. 29er wheels run stuff over good. I have the chainstays as short as the go. I feel this negates the slow handling 29er feel quite a bit. Only complaint is the frame weight but I can deal with it.
How did that come about?
I heard (and anyone can correct me here)that he used some trails to film that run-away bike scene in RV. He wanted to "pay" for using the trail and found the builder. The story I heard was that it was a rock cutter that he donated but anyone with first hand knowledge can again correct me. It could be argued that he played a big part in all the rock work on CBC.
It's why I suggest some way of honoring him with regards to the CBC trail.
Maybe a CBC name change is in order? Be a good way for people to know there was so many facets to the guy.
I feel like he was the at one moment he could open the door wide open and be so honest, then the next he would hide behind his manic rants just keeping the door open enough.
Live at the MET he says "I'm scarred shitless!" So honest. Then goes off into some verbal diarrhea to cover his tracks.
