letter from CMHC

Big ted: What are doing in my house watching my t.v.?

Dawnchairy: I rang your doorbell five times and no-one answered. So i propose that if hadn't come in, no-one would be watching your t.v..

Yeah, except it isn't "their/your" house. They are managing it for the community/public. So, yes, if a manager of a community house is absent(for 20 years), i don't think it's unreasonable imma go in and watch me some ALF reruns.

No Trespassing signs on CMHC lands and trails

Holy shite, I think i just "wasted" an hour reading this thread. I laughed, i cried, i emotioned all over the place. Can't wait for the reboot.

Any plumber recco's in the S2S?

Drains need slope, and pex is brain dead simple to replace copper. Unless it's a scope of job thing or you are looking at major changes, its' definitely doable for the home-gamer. (disclaimer: not a plumber,just a handyman)

Big White bike park - summer 2017?

Schweet! I was too busy hittin them dank nugs in the 90's to really notice much of anything, but as far as i know this will be a first for them. Hopefully they can make a go of it. It's been a couple years since i've ridden the interior bike parks but Sunpeaks and even Silverstar didn't have anything by way of lineups the few times I was up there. Stoked to do a tour next year though.

Interbike Wish List

Parachute pajamas pants with flow control.
Glow stick bull bars.
Rental bike saddle condoms.
Those things gotta be nasty.

Or… Maybe a showcase of adapter options for the new standards or poor OE.
I.e.: I noticed someone here had a press fit to threaded set up for sale, but i have yet to see or read of any such option in the media.

Helmet or Handlebar Lights?

For the cost of lights online these days I would highly recommend both.Bar lights will show you where you are going and head lamp will show where you want to go. There really is no compromise outside of funding. Personally, I've made do with a head lamp, but not by choice.
As mentioned above, Solar storm X2's, as well as any cree led head lamps are a great bang for buck.

Banshee bikes

Picked up a '14 Legend this spring. Haven't been able to get the suspension dialed after a handful of days at the park, but i love the frame. Corners like a dam and jumps pretty good for a plow sled. I've heard only good things about Spitfire and Rune talking to owners. Darkside looks like a fun park bike too. I was under the impression it was primarily out of the UK now?

Lights

I've been totally happy with the solar storms light output, but i think battery life/quality can vary between vendors. My last battery only ran about ~1.5hrs with it set on low during climbs. I usually end up carrying a spare pack JIC. For the price you can't complain and it's worth upgrading from a reputable battery source when needed. My last lights grew legs and i recently ordered two net sets for $31 usd (US vendor - delivered to the border) . Same price from China to Canada, just a much longer delivery period.

Not again, more vandalism on Mt. Fromme

Noticed one missing from Vedder yesterday. Might be a new collector about. First time in a long time I've seen one go missing in the Valley.

WBP during Crankworx

It's pretty much madness up there throughout Crankworx, but if you wanna ride and check out some of the action your best bet is to do laps on fitz and watch the slopestyle from the lineup/chairlift. There's tons of downtime between riders etc, that makes it a little tedious for viewing from the slopes IMO. Trails will be busy for reasons, but yeah, a lot of people will be watching the show keeping it a little calmer out there.

Ladies Only POV

Nice. I actually think the camera set up is pretty dialed. The low mount position gives the sensation of being in the bike, and being able to see how it reacts to the trail without the all too common neck strain that come from watching helmet cams pointed at the wheel/visor. By the looks of it, being more centralized may have helped eliminate some of the video trail chatter too. I gotta check out the new work, you were cruising.

Wa to BC. Which 2 bike parks to visit?

If you like out of the way camping, pick up some of the Backroads Mapbooks (someone in the US need to start making these). There's a handful of them for different regions in BC. Hardcopies are nice and can be bought at most "Canadian Tire" stores, but dowloadables are available as well. You should be fine mid week most places for getting a spot, but worst case you'll know where to go looking if official campgrounds are full. Great for taking "Scenic" routes too. I pretty much only backroad camp and they are indespensible. Lots of info on hikes, fishing kayak drop ins etc. Candy for explorers.

Reverb went caput

Unless your frame is still under warranty and you're worried about it, I'd just drill a stealth hole for the 9.8., seems to be a winner so far. Plus it never hurts to big up with a canook company eh. I was considering drilling mine when i was shopping for a dropper and couldn't find anyone having issues after the fact. I ended up going KS lev external just for the price point, and ran into the sinking into the travel issue they were plagued with for a while. KS fixed it under warranty, but the customer service was terrible. That said, i still like the post and would consider another one barring any further issue reports.
