  1. It seems like they're doing a decent amount of testing. There have been issues with the tests in the USA. First not working well, and also not being in great supply. But outside of major cities things aren't really too bad here. Here the problem isn't really low income families, or at least really low income, as they qualify for Medicaid. Even if you don't you should be able to get healthcare through the affordable healthcare act. The problem is for mid and high income self employed people who don't have health insurance provided by an employer and don't qualify for one of the government subsidized options. They can get screwed, (with or without covid-19). (This all being way more than I Normally talk about American politics) That being said, is be surprised if Congress didn't pass something to pay for the cost of treatment of covid-19 specifically.
  2. Sitting at home in USA. Kids are home from school all day, which isn't horrible since they're pretty well behaved. But my wife's still recovering from surgery and doesn't have a tone of energy. Here in North Carolina we're at the social distance, no groups of more than 10. But I think we'll be in a "shelter in place" by the end of the week, so I've been trying to get out on the bike before I'm not allowed to. Some of the riding spots I go to are closed to the public. Sadly I've lost the majority of my income to this, and am scrambling to get things together to start teaching english to elementary kids online. Things still look way worse in the UK than here, comparison wise North Carolina is 1/6 the pop of UK, but just has around 400 cases with 0 deaths so far.
  3. I always loved the look of that frame, especially the colors of the Bianchi version.
  4. Hey all, how long do you think you can use / store rim brake pads before they get too hard from age? Just curious. I've got some pads in my bin from years ago and even the cousts I use have lasted me a few years. What do you think?
  5. This or a DX32 seems a good route.
  6. More than echo... Hadn't heard of them breaking, but maybe I'm not in the loop?
  7. I think it's worth taking the time to do. I preferred side hopping to my bad side for over ten years before I really learned to sidehop to my rear foot side. Took some time before it felt natural, now it feels way better and I can sidehop a bit higher that way. As with many things, comparing oneself to someone as talented as Neil isn't really fair. He's not human.
  8. It could be ok. But that's a lot of money to gamble on the made in China carbon bike parts game.
  9. It's the same wall, just a different camera angle. Doesn't appear stretched at all. On a different note. Some of the spills in the out takes are pretty crazy. To hit the ground that hard so many times without a major injury is talent or madness. The "storyline" on this one does seems a bit lazier. The riding is ridiculous. I know it's not as polished as Ali or Danny, but who else is?!
  10. If you wanted one, Brian from NWtrials has one left, disc, 26", straight 1-1/8". Part of his closing shop closeout.
  11. But would you trust it? hashtagg would trust, but the 26" disc version is hard to find.
  12. I've always used front disc on my pure, this is one of the main reasons why.
  13. That was fun to watch. You look like you're having a blast!
  14. That looks AMAZING! I loved my Manifesto!
  15. You're riding always has so much tech I can watch a video a few times and keep on noticing little things. Bad foot sidehop at 1:34?
