This was not a case of the plaintiff's claim being pursued by an insurer. There is the Health Care Costs Recovery Act in BC. The act obligates that the plaintiffs lawyer include the recovery of BC Medical costs on behalf of the Health Care system. But BC med does not pay the lawyer to do this. In cases where a claimant is. Not represented, the adjuster or insurer defending a claim notifies BC Med of the claim and if there is liability will pay BC Med their costs. I represented one of the defendants in this case.

Not sure id want the trail for my fork changing as the suspension cycles? Cant imagine that would be good at all for the handling....
The trail on a telescopic fork changes as the fork compresses and that increases head angle, which decreases trail. Unless the rear suspension also compresses a similar amount.

I just got a pair of Ryder's fyre lens riding glasses. Works very well.
Do you wear a full face or open helmet with the Ryder's?
Both. They fit with my Leatt and Smith half shells and Giro Switchblade just fine.
I just got a pair of Ryder's fyre lens riding glasses. Works very well. As always, try any glasses on with your helmet to test fit and bend over into a riding position to make sure they go up high enough so that you're not looking over the top or into the frame. Sunglasses for the beach generally work poorly on a bike.
There is no air in Colorado. The stuff I rode in Durango was not that steep but unless your acclimated the thin air of altitude makes a low low gear a good thing.
I use a bear bell off my saddle pack. Not for bears but for humans. That and a DT Swiss hub with minimal grease, my own grunting will warn other users that they are not alone. I also go slow unless I have line of sight on multi use trails.
I went XO1 Eagle but kept my crank and ring. I love the range. I was running an XT 11-42 with XTR short cage and shifter and it worked really well but I ran out of gear on paved routes to and from trails and the 42 x 30 was not quite low enough for the Whistler grinds. But the Shimano gear shifted a whole lot better. Faster up shifts because as soon as the shifter clicks, it releases and there is the double upshift to consider as well. I find the drop from the 50 to the 42 sometimes clumps and clanks as the chain is locating itself. Downshifts are soft and slower too. Part of it I think is me adapting to a different shift feel, part is the jumps between some gears. I am getting used to the slower shift response. The gear range though trumps the less good shifting. I may try a Shimano polymer coated cable with Shimano housing at some point. That may help.
I just installed a new 9point8 dropper with that Wolftooth remote. Holy dyna so smooth with a light action and better ergonomics.
So true. The odd rider still in shorts though which can scoop air big time which is very slow. Most wear full pants which is smart. In ski racing a suit is worth several seconds in a minute and a half race. If mountainbike race clothing needed to have a certain amount of durability for protection, that is logical. But the argument seemed to be that guys were embarrassed the wear tight clothes which would not encourage kids. Or it wasn't moto enough.
Own class? No. One comment at Fort Bill was once all are on 29 it's all even again. Makes sense. You don't want to stifle design or mechanical progress, nor do you want the sport to be totally about the bike. You want the best rider to win, not the best bike under a mediocre rider. In cyclo cross tire size was recently restricted to a max of 33mm. Before you had pros showing up with numerous sets of wheels with various sizes of tires with various trend patterns. All pre glued because you can't glue a tubular on on race day and use it. That meant maybe ten pairs of wheels for a single top rider. That's like 30-40 grand worth of stuff at retail level. Not that a pro pays that but still. Similarly if tech keeps changing that makes it challenging for a privateer DH rider to keep up.
A 2.6 on a 27 will be fine I think.
How narrow? The problem with wide tires on narrow rims is that you need higher pressures to keep the tire from rolling sideways which completely defeats the purpose of wide tires.
I have heard that Shimano pads oxidize over time. A simple sanding fixes that aspect. If you ride frequently it's a non issue but a bike sitting for a few weeks or more can feel like contaminated pads. I think that only applies to the metal pads. If pressure is lost, ie lever to bar, must be air in the system.
I always start with the free maintenance. Sand, clean, bleed, lube, adjust or what have you.
I really like the idea but that's a lot of jake for a mini tool. And I have a number of decent mini tools already. Plus I measured the id of my Pike and I don't think the EDC will fit. In reality, the only time a really easily accessible tool is needed is when I am setting up new bars or levers or saddles and need to fiddle on the trail. Other than that the tool is in my pack or under the seat in a small tool kit with a tube and CO2. The packs hold pumps. Today was a pack day because I needed my Sven Saw to take out some winter deadfall.
Yes. I have learned over the years that with rain jackets, cheap is not economical because you end up spending more on several cheap jackets than for one very good jacket. You do have to temper that with how rough you will be. Like an XTR derailleur will work better longer than an SLX but if you break derailleurs off on rocks then it is not cost effective.
