Re: Inter River pumptrack

Yeah I don't know much about pump tracks but it doesn't seem great. kinda sucks as I appreciate the effort by the district to try and build something for the community.

Silent rear hub

Once Tungsten finds that silent hub this thread will devolve into 'How do I quiet the rest of that #"###* racket I wasn't noticing before!?!" ;) Looking forward to that actually…I'll be paying close attention. My hub is like 200db and I can still hear the cables rattling around inside the frame even after wrapping. :|

It is surprising how much quieter a hub is after lubing the prawls though. Grease especially, (if your hub works with grease). My current hub is oil only, I open it up and and just go to town with Dumonde Tech freehub oil on the prawls.

get a frame that doesn't have internal cabling routing :P

one trick my friend did was pull it tight and put a zapstrap on it.

Chomping at the bit

It's pretty soft out there, was out trail running yesterday. I imagine will be packed today.

NSR owners

This. Localish as well in Bellingham. He also makes everything in house which is cool.

current exchange rate makes it brutal to buy though.

My rig for the new year, All new drivetrain, 2016 Rune frame, got out on a couple times before the snow and it is so so good! I love it.

BC lays out 5 "conditions for approval" of Northern Gateway

Interesting. A friend of a friend wanted to dig in his backyard in the early 2000s. Calls ALL the utilities. His front yard looks like an urban art project w/all the paint marking the hot zones. Backyard is declared utility free, dig all you want. He knocks down a portion of his fence, rolls the rental JCB ho' into the back yard [HTML_REMOVED] digs….. 2 feet down hits the natural gas line….. [HTML_REMOVED] much hilarity ensues! 911 call, city shows up, gas guys show up [HTML_REMOVED] much finger pointing w/the general mood looking to throw the homeowner under the bus. Homeowner points out the art project on his front lawn [HTML_REMOVED] the multiple calls [HTML_REMOVED] on site visits giving him the go ahead. Dance monkeys, dance! Gas co. finally relents [HTML_REMOVED] picks up the 10 grand bill for emergency weekend repairs. Turns out the house, which sits on a corner gets its gas fed from the main street thru the backyard, Awesome! Or put another way, what Mr West said.

they do this shit all the time. I was working with a crew the other day and they had the plans from Fortis where the pipe will be… its not. some smart guy threw a big 90 into it and went around so it was sticking out. they caught it but only bent it up and then fortis had to come and inspect it.

2016 F1 thread.

Everyone's talking about who would be a good replacement for Nico.
The list goes on and on.
Toto said he has been contacted by at least half the field of current of F1 drivers.

I haven't read it yet, but would be interested to hear Rosberg's opinion.

not sure what Daniel ricciardo's contract is with redbull but… Merc would do well stealing him. although he may not want to be on a team with Hamilton.

NBR Computer Games Thread

I'm a huge BF fan and have been ordering the game on day 0 since BFBC2, but with the stupid dedicated server BS I have held off on BF1. I'd buy it for 50% off (but I want the DLC too) and the best I could find was 33% off the base game on black friday sales.

For me, it's key that community servers have admins with full power to kick disruptive players and control the game well. Otherwise it's just a crapshoot with no one playing the objectives.

Not really seeing these problems so far. people seem to be really into this game and trying to achieve the objectives. once in awhile you get a one sided blow out but thats going to happen from time to time.

Played the closed and open beta. It was fun but not amazing, might be better if you had a crew of friends playing. For $80CAD no way, not even close. I would pay maybe $25 for it.

was also in the beta, huge rip off at $80. Just not that entertaining or well made for that price.

Titanfall 2 and BF1 are my current favorites. Got Titanfall 2 for half off so that was nice.

Who says North Vancouver housing is expensive?

Where are you trying to get to/ from by transit? I find transit from Lynn valley to downtown to be very good. I work near lougheed mall though and it is slightly faster to get there by bike.

When the wife got her job down near Grandville island, we looked into it and it was going to take twice as long as cost more than fuel for her little car.

long-term traffic planning for the north shore is great for climate change. seeing as our politicians won't put in a significant carbon tax, instead we'll let the roads become total gridlock to force people into transit or bikes. and those fancy new cars that everyone has seem to turn off the engine when they stop?

Too bad the North shore has shit transit so its either bike or drive.
