And this is why i almost always vote green. I realize it's a" throw away" vote, but they all might as well be. Just different faces of the same beast it would so often seem. I would've voted rhino if it was on the ballot. :flame:
I know from personal experience this definitely used to happen, and i've read from others claiming to be in the social services that it continues. In my teens/mid 90's i was on the street and stupidly followed some friends to Montreal in the middle of winter. Shit wasn't working out well and the social worker i ended up seeing, didn't want to offer me housing but was only too happy to give me a bus ticket to Ontario. Rinse and repeat, and i was on my way back to BC.
Ledgeview will be horrible! Go ride Red! :P Sumas still has lots of snow. It's pretty common for it to have snow into spring on the top half, and given this winter, the bottom isn't doing much better. The south side of ledgeview is supposedly solid, and the west is a little soft and greasy but should be pretty prime by the weekend. Mixed bag and the north side might me a little more juicy. Trailforks is your friend.
Edit: Lol, apparently i didn't read past the first line of your post. So, yeah, soft and greasy. No snow/ice of note, and it's gonna be warmer the next two days.
Just curious if you have an aversion to metal lathe/fabric or if it's just not something you've considered? Cheap (6 bucks will get you two 8x1' pieces), easy to pack in, quick to install. Comes with a minor aesthetic drawback, but essentially zero future maintenance on a low use ladder = more riding/building = win. And you won't have to guess how slippery the wood is a year from now.
They are fine with the plastic kind that extend back from the crown (mucky nutz etc) on your lowers as the rack holds the fork by the top crown. Could be problems with the cut up inner tube style stretched between the two crowns, but I have used one with that before too it still works while pressed against the cut tube. A large moto style fender attached to the top crown wouldn't work but nobody uses those.
I stand corrected. Good to know.
I'm feeling ya. Valley is all snow and ice on the hills for the most part. Considering the sad lack of hero dirt days in the past three months, i'm seriously thinking of making a run down south for a week. Took a gander at moab and virgin weather, but it's as cold as here. Anyone got some suggestions for warm(ish) go to spots worth a 6-7 day road trip? North/central california but away from the masses? somewhere else?
Can't speak of sub50 stems, but I've been running a 780 bar for a few years on my AM bike (i have a 300 on the DH sled) and member when going back to a bike with 760's felt strangely small. We're pretty adaptable creatures though and i got used to it again quick enough, but i wasn't complaining when my regular pony was back up and running. It may slow you down for a while on the tight stuff, but you'll learn when to pull one way or the hard way. Running a wider steerer might give you some grace to smash bar ends instead of digits anyway.
Yeah, absolutely nothing in there is a compelling argument as to why the autonomy of ones own mortality should be in question. The ability for the health system to make this choice for you is a much more complicated subject. Obviously this is a big topic that touches on a lot of societal values, but at it's base if we value freedom so greatly, the ability for one to chose when, where and why they leave this spiral, should be of their own choosing. The fact that this article's conclusive paragraph states that "History has taught us the dangers of euthanasia" and then provides absolutely no support for this statement pretty much sums it up.
Why on earth should a government, or anyone for that matter, be allowed to deny someone that choice? What purpose does making such acts illegal serve? I'm seriously curious if anyone has a reasonable argument for this? I'm definitely not on the fence on the subject, but I'm usually sometimes mostly possibly willing to have my mind changed.
