Less Than 500 Gram Crankset

I am curious about the "made in Canada" tag. Does anyone know the status of manufacturing with Raceface? They recently auctioned off all the machinery from the Braid facility, so I presumed that meant they were moving everything offshore? Is there another factory somewhere in Canada?

Race Face continues to make ALL their carbon cranks in Vancouver. They recently moved to a new facility that allowed them to expand this carbon production - doubling the output of their awesome carbon cranks. The Made in Canada tag on the cranks is legit.

2013 Tour De France

Stage to Ventoux will be epic…I think Contador will be the aggressor and we will see if anyone can stay on his wheel….especially if Fromme is left exposed again without any teammates. I am secretly hoping for Ryder to make a showing but obviously that broken rib is holding him back - good on him for not dropping out.

Lets hear about your "ringing in the new year!"; chain ringing that is!

A nice ripping shuttle run on Seymour! Once past the snow the trails are running so perfect now. Wicked fun….Happy New Year!

was that you bonktonk? i was in the group and carried your bike down to the flank. That was probably the worst place to bail in pretty much the entire race, shit was wild though there. Definitely one of the worst crashes i've seen in real life, stoked you got away with just the clavicle as it could have been way worse!

Yeah that was me! Thanks so much for taking the time to help me get out after that crash….I owe you a 6 pack for sure! Was not a fun fall - I am sure it looked pretty gnarly too - but like you said it could have been worse. Going to see surgeon tomorrow about my options for healing cleanly.

this. heal up!

out of curiosity, did you do yourself on that big rock slab, with the S bend in the middle and the big pile of duff at the end?

From what I remember I would say yes that was the spot!

Incredible event….so much fun -especially for someone like myself that has barely sampled the riding in Whis besides the WBP.. Big thanks to Tony, WORCA and and all the vollys for putting it all together. Even bigger thanks to the Tony and the other riders (you know who you are!) that helped me get out after I broke my collarbone on Rockwork - I owe you all some beers! I am sad that I didn't finish though - oh well - congrats to all of you that did! The atmosphere and camaraderie amongst the riders was so positive - regardless of race standings or skill level. Very refreshing….

Fromme Hose

There is a hose at the PetroCanada station on the North/West corner of Mountain Hwy and Lynn Valley Road. I have used it before…its adequate for the job.
