    Chickenpox

    Such a mainstay of '70s/'80s childhoods; pretty sure I attended one.

    ACT Best of Canberra Mountain Bike Experience Workshops

    Yeah apparently. Although if you don’t want to there’s an email address there too. Contacting the office of Andrew Barr and the environment minister as well as the Green’s guy directly is worthwhile.

    ACT Best of Canberra Mountain Bike Experience Workshops

    Hey Canberra riders and others who like the trails here. Time for me to hassle you all again. It's budget time, and while the response to the draft report was really positive, let's just say I have it on really good authority that mountain bikers are among the least engaged community members...

    Vorsprung upgrades to fox36 fit4

    I had the Luftkappe and Fractive fitted to some Fox 34s - unfortunately I got that done just before the first lockdown/home schooling period hit and didn't get much time on the bike immediately after. From memory the fork sat higher more of the time and small bump was a little improved, but it's...

    Crypto predictions, dead or not.

    Given that 'my case' is that this is a complicated argument not a simple one, I guess I'm not going to make any inroads with you. Maybe it is all as simple as "kiddie porn" and "crypto bros". Happy for you to see it your way, I found the Forbes article I linked more compelling. It addresses...

    Alright going to call pause on the thread for a bit. If anyone actually wants to contribute experiences about electronic shifting I'll open it back up, pretty sure @moorey knows how to set up a regular drivetrain.

    Crypto predictions, dead or not.

    The author says that he's just estimating the figures for bitcoin, and then chooses VISA as the comparison, presumably because the figures were easy to find. It's the same comparison I was questioning the validity of before: it seems selective to only compare the energy used in VISA...

    I have a Garbaruk cassette and extender working fine on 11 speed, no complaints so far.

    Crypto predictions, dead or not.

    Interesting, and no dispute that it’s super energy intensive. But is it fair to compare the power used in Bitcoin to an arbitrary number of visa transactions? Those transactions aren’t the only environmental cost of a regular currency. Does the Australian dollar have a higher environmental...

    That’s a huge statement.

    Crypto predictions, dead or not.

    Has anybody done a reputable comparison of the environmental impact of mining/managing cryptocurrency as compared to equivalent fiat currency or investments? The environmental criticism seems like a superficial one without some facts, and I suspect it’s impossible to calculate with any accuracy.

    In other happy @moorey news, theoretically the new UK trade deal will make Oranges basically free.

    My first......

    I crashed hard on my hipbone once and had a crazy bruise that spread throughout the er, general region. Went to the doc fearing bad news and after mocking me, said the extensive coverage was nothing to worry about.
