    Bitcoin

    This is a stereotypical reaction from those invested to those who are not, however you forgot to tell me I just don't understand crypto, I don't "get it". If you think crypto isn't manipulated for the benefit of the rich just like fiat is, and is really some sort of fair decentralized currency...

    Bitcoin

    Young people have little wisdom and want all sorts of unrealistic things. That said, I don't think our current system is perfect and am open to crypto, I just don't like to impersonate scared ostrich.

    Bitcoin

    You're right, it uses more energy because it provides more VALUE, you know, things people actually need and use. Day to day banking, loans, payments, customer services, settling disputes, etc. The comparison with maintaining a blockchain ledger that has ridiculously high transcation rates and...

    Any cyclists here?

    I hear you, the older you get the more training you need just to function. I think some aging issues are genetic and others a result of atrophy though... On jumping it's really a feel thing. Stay on smaller jumps that have a wider margin for error and less consequence until you feel a sense...

    Coaching is the best thing you can do if you want to learn or progress. So many techniques are counter intuitive and most people can't even understand what they are doing on a bike without feedback, in other words they can't just see a good rider and then copy their technique without being...

    Any cyclists here?

    I was a little worried about it, but ebikes haven't been a major issue for either mtb trails or bike paths around here. I love my commuter ebike and will surely own an emtb some day. I know a couple girls who don't like to ride with some groups because they feel they're too slow, emtbs have...

    Any cyclists here?

    That's why I only race enduro, the ups aren't timed, only the downs! Of course you have to get up the hill and still have energy for the dh. I have done enduro races that involved 1500+ m of climbing 4 days in a row at high altitude, but then others are done primarily on a chairlift, so there's...

    Any cyclists here?

    Yeah, I'm not that great either... when I started mtb in the early 2000s I was a total hack, not a natural at all. I was also out of shape and like you I'm better at short bursts of strength, which is great for cleaning short technical climbs on a mtb but it's a disadvantage everywhere else. I...

    Any cyclists here?

    Yes, I can't imagine what race organizers have gone through the last couple years! Even pro level Enduro racing has been a $hit show... Thanks on the frame! It is hard to rely on delivery dates, but I waited 6 months for my Transition Spur and it showed up within 2 weeks of it's scheduled...

    Any cyclists here?

    Nice! I have an Enduro bike too. I was scheduled to do 4 races in 2020 but then covid hit... I'll likely do a few this summer though. I ordered a new frame as I have so many old parts around I can sell the Specialized and make a profit, now's a good time to sell bikes. I went for a...

    Smooth musical cabling suggestion

    Just FYI, the Siltech cables aren't the cause of glare, they just won't hide it. Glare can be caused by a lot of different things, almost any part of the system can add something you might call glare, including the speakers themselves. That said, if your goal is to improve your system, using...

    Does the Audiophile Community Have a Problem?

    I know... but if you read your post from "It's innate... " onward in JP's voice it sounds like something he'd say, so I was jokingly asking if you're JP himself, here posting on WBF.

    best cost no object, cables

    Over the long term it NEVER works the other way. You can cherry pick specific exceptions but denying that humans making progress and improvements over time is a good thing seems awfully bizarre to me. People that think STis or TAD R1s are still modern tech at the top of the game are both fooling...

    best cost no object, cables

    I agree somewhat... I understand the thought that that a good design should stand the test of time and it should, but only for it's time. One of the great things about humans and one of the only things that differentiates us from animals is our ability to improve things. For example bee hives...
