The Lounge / Re: Where is everyone at in life?

I always have the thought that a small MFBS group should continue on somewhere other than this site, as it's bound to go dark one of these days, but never get motivated enough to make it happen. I do keep up with the guys who are on Instagram though (add me if you're on there and I don't know it, pnwpedal).

I'm still doing the work thing, landed a new PM job this year and looking forward to some stability. Wife is also working and we have our hands full with our almost 5yo crazy little girl. Same suburban house that's due for some work this year ($$$), a couple different cars, and still have the bikes. I'm riding MTB mostly these days but will take the 20" out for a spin when the weather is good.

maybe we could start a facebook group?

As much as I loathe facebook, that would probably be the easiest option. Or maybe a private subreddit?

Many thumbs up, this makes me want to go ride my bike.

Keep it up. I know not many people reply on here but I've always enjoyed your videos and watch every time you post a new one. Cheers.

Same!

Your videos always get me stoked to go ride, always the best combination of style and cool spots.

The Bike Shop / Re: Odyssey clutch v2 opinions

I highly haven't heard of any issues on the V2... Which means quite a bit for a coaster. I'd run one without hesitation. Odyssey would have your back if any issues arose so that helps as well.

Besides a couple minutes of easy pedalling, end of December. I tore an ab muscle the next week and have been sitting on my ass since then.

Update:

I reinjured the same area so I have a CT scan next week to determine what's next. Either keep sitting on my ass with no riding, or surgery and then recovery with no riding. Either way no bikes for me for the next month or two.

Update again: CT scan showed no remaining injury so physical therapy should get me past the current pain. Meaning... I might actually ride a bike this month. I really fucking hope so.

On my usual chrome rim, Salmon Kool Stops all the way (any of the aluminum models with replaceable pad inserts).

For painted rims you almost need clear pads (Ody, Fly, etc) to get enough bite to really lock the wheel up.

I always run my pads with no toe, flat to the rim. Makes them feel better IMO.

The new(ish) Odyssey Grandstand PCs are really wide and decently thin. The bushings are a little finicky for preload but once you get them adjusted right they're smooth with no wobble. I've had mine for a bit and like them.

The Lounge / Re: Matt Berringer comes out as gay.
« on: January 22, 2018, 10:54:45 AM »
It's fucked that people would lose their sponsors if they come out as gay.

It's a bit ridiculous, but there is still a subculture in America that hates anyone who isn't heterosexual and white.

I saw a bit of this growing up in a small white town, whose only diversity was migrant farm workers (who were not liked). The cultural norms that make this "acceptable" to some people exist in these little bubbles of people who haven't travelled, met new people, or seen bigger and better cultures. Not to mention the staunch religious practices of rural America.

But responding to your point - if a TM or company owner held these negative convictions, and a team member came out, it could end up badly for them. And that sucks.
