seems like a nice company.  i wonder if they are involved in our blockade messes?

Re: Do you support or agree with the nationwide Protests?

do you think Canada is not being ethical about it, at least in recent times? we haven't always been, far from it, but i think the country is being as ethical as it can possibly be. i know this gets old, but i'ma say it anyways, imagine if this was the US, or oh, anywhere in the mid to far east? it would be a massacre.

Re: Do you support or agree with the nationwide Protests?

if you truly see yourself and your family as settlers and colonists, you should take everyone back to where they came from. and if that is from here, too late. you're the problem. and this is exactly the polarization i mentioned and why there is no way forward when this mindset is present.

The hereditary leaders are also not elected, which I don't agree with on principle.  

but teh courts did.... https://thetyee.ca/Opinion/2020/02/18/Hiding-Behind-One-Rule-Of-Law-Myth-Wetsuweten/

ah, the wisdom of professors. imagine how cool it would be to be a tenured prof and write this kind of shit and try and pass it off as intelligent, logic based argument. as soon as you read 'settler state' or 'colonists' written by a white person, or any person in this country, you know they're fucked, and hence we're fucked. and so we continue to track backwards in this country.

Re: Do you support or agree with the nationwide Protests?

if the G&M readership is any gauge of the national sentiment, the protestors have not only lost any sympathy, they are mostly detested. this is ugly for Canada and is polarizing and straining relations between indigenous and SJW's and the rest of the country. sadly, i think that many moderates are becoming angry and spiteful and there are fewer moderates as a result.

Re: Fun "value" of new vs used; is the juice worth the squeeze?

i'm highly biased, with a bike up for sale, but i can't believe how many high end bikes linger for sale forever. i have a premo custom build on a 2016 'bike of the year' mtb and i'm selling it for a song.  a 16 Patrol is essentially a current Bronson, but with a nicer build kit and wheels, Vorsprung shock and Factory 36 fork. 200mm dropper. not a nibble for months.  maybe it's not enough of a park sled?

Shimano brakes

just read another bike review that complained about 'wandering bite point' and how it made it hard to ride aggressively. i have a set of Zee's on each bike and don't understand or experience this (or i'm completely immune to it?). 

so is this only an issue with the newest redesigned Shimano brakes or old ones as well? the fact that this issue is mentioned ad nauseam in every review is curious to me.  would those on Saint brakes have the same issue?

do you have daughters?

i watched a bit of the superbowl yesterday in between other things. out of casual interest in the spectacle and the prurient interest in scantily clad women i watched the half time show. i picture millions of people of every socio economic rung watching this with their friends and families. i'm thinking of all the young women and girls watching and i can't help but wonder what the message is here to women.  

you're a body to be objectified, wag your ass around and grab at your crotch a lot? make sure you grow up to be as sexual as possible?  i'm not a father, but i find the general image of women in the American media, especially the pop media like this, to be brutal. and i'm not saying it's a male created problem, i have no idea the root of it (oh wait, money, that's it), but i would be pissed if this was the mainstream image my daughters were absorbing from the media.  what's your take, daddy o?
