NOT WHEN YOU PUT IT DERAILLEUR SIDE DOWN. 

THE HORROR.

It could be worse. The bike could be upside down.

Re: If your life was a movie...

No one would make a movie of my life. Too normal and dull.and that’s totally OK.

Re: Brake setup for new build

Way back in the 26 inch wheel days I had the Tech X2 Hope brakes. I think the callipers are the same but the lever, master cylinder end is different now. My set up was not strong enough for North Van trails and my 140 pounds. It was a cross country race brake I think. Personally I go for bigger brake rotors and four piston brakes.

Anyone lucky enough to get in on a trading card?

Well they exist only as an NFT so you can’t even wipe your ass with one.

My mom and borther are the exact same way. my mom never gave a rats ass about politics and now its the same story as above. I really dont get it. I saw this thing where a baby was having a heart operation or something and the parents canceled it cause of the possibility of donor blood having come from a vaccinated person.

this one

fucking morons.

How fucked do you have to be to risk your baby's life over a vaccine?  Don't they wonder how so many of us have received several boosters and manage to survive?

I'm pretty sure there is a party of religious fanatics maybe the JW's who don't allow blood transfusions

Yeah. JWs don’t allow blood transfusions. An uncle of mine needed heart surgery but wouldn’t have it done because of that. Made my father angry that his brother died in his mid 60s when he didn’t have to. Prince too. He needed hip replacements badly but wouldn’t do it for those same religious reasons. Ended up hooked on pain killers as a result and died from that instead. Stupid.

Re: Chromag clipless

I’ve seen a few of the full suspension Chromag adult bikes on the trail. There was one outside their shop last time I was there too. Coming soon?

Losing a dog is hard. Dogs are so consistent in their "love" for us, that constant companion. I miss my boy. He died Monday presumably from heart failure at age 7. I had to find him back on the trail and carry him out. I imagine Big Willie will leave a big hole in many hearts.

really sorry to hear that Andy, always enjoyed seeing you and the dogs on the trail...which I also miss since moving to Squamish

Yeah me too. We always shared a laugh or two. My mother in law is in Squamish now at the end of Mamquam Rd. Maybe we’ll be lucky and run into each other.

we're on the golf course end of mamquam, nice to have the river trails/dike to walk Dakota on, and the golf course now that it's closed for the winter!

I thought so. I saw what I think was your company truck up there. MIL is in the older townhouse development.

Re: MTB Lights 2022!

Ordered today. I’m thinking because most helmets these days allow a goggle to mount under a visor that the strap on this light will mount like a goggle too. I tried my current dim headlamps and it seems to work ok. Might be too giggly though but we’ll see.

Re: Daylight Savings Time

Posted by: Adam-West

We had the perfect moment to abandon this bullshit 2 years ago yet we pushed it off. Why cant we do anything ourselves?

It’s coming I think within a year. BC is waiting for Washington, Oregon and California to make the change. Those states are in the process of getting their federal government to enact the laws (or whatever) to do so. I looked it up yesterday because I was curious.

Re: I'm cold.

So many good suggestions in this thread. No one is wrong either. But you need to experiment to find out what works best for you. I sweat heavily unless it’s really cold or I ride slow. Many climbs don’t really allow going easy around here so it’s about sweat management for me. Going up "be bold, start cold" works for me. If you feel comfortable walking around the trail head, you wore too much. Remove a layer and carry it up. Wind vests and jackets are great. Many are very light weight and packable. I like merino for really cold weather where I’m not going to go so hard that the sweat faucets are full open. Cross country skiing sees me in Lifa polypropylene under layer as it dries faster than merino. It may not completely dry out on a longer descent but I find it has a better chance of that than merino. Dry polypropylene is warmer than wet wool.
