Words of Wisdom

Register information pertinent to living a fulfilling life. "Register" is to sign up, commit, retain.

Seeded in me early on is a lesson I hold dear. The man responsible, well versed in altruism... expressed no ulterior motive and was not especially close to me (or so I thought).

...

Jack O'Shaughnessy, a 3M products outside representative, was doing his "thing"; bringing down the house while chasing dollar bills.

Jack was his usual, performing his best impersonation of himself (the personality we think we are). Afterwards, I found myself one on one with this colorful character when he said... eyes fixated on the imaginary horizon... "Kid... Do not jump out of the car and go directly to work. Take a moment for yourself. Breathe, enjoy the silence, the peace before exiting."

His words were solemnly spoken as I glimpsed of the man with the cracker jack box exterior. These were the last words Jack would ever share. He died the very next week...

Imagine relocating the transmission of your automobile to the outside edge of the right quarter panel. Sounds rather vulnerable doesn't it, a delicate mechanism crucial to performance floating out there in the breeze?

Now, remove the protective housing and drain it of precious fluids. Picture this scene, millions of commuters oiling their chain and gears before hitting the road, a road of dirt, rocks and mud... Neighbors bumming wax based periffin oil.

How could a person ex...pect such a system perform at all? AAA would be every third vehicle, keeping the path clear, aligning drivetrains and mending chains.

We expect a bicycle derailleur to work flawlessly in all conditions, under or over lubricated, smashed on rocks, bent from a crash, all while being shifted under load.

Please consider the information I present before tongue lashing your local shop because your bike doesn't change gears properly. The fact the system works at all is nothing but miraculous!

Had a customer stroll in with this plus size Amazon Diamondback. Pretty rad for $750 if I do say. Maybe it's the end of buying bikes at your IBD (Independent Bicycle Dealer). Chime in if you have an opinion.

Sure, the fork is mediocre and it's not tubeless, but the geometry is dialed and it's lightweight.

This is an excellent entry level trail bike. The "big three" better get their act together or I'm opening a gourmet coffee shop sooner than later.

Conspiracy

Like the human body, mechanical componentry has an expiration date. Yet the general public continues to preach "planned obsolescence"... a bullshit theory that products have been engineered to fail just beyond warranty.

Planned obsolescence is typically fueled by wack jobs posting propaganda on social media. Truth is; items fail for many reasons, self destruction in T minus 5 4 3 2 1 not one of them.

...

General maintenance, weather conditions, rider experience and power output are just a few considerations when calculating component wear and tear. Drivetrains can be used as a perfect example.

The big conspiratorial question... Did engineers design a short life span into 11 and 12 speed chains and cogs???

If you answer "yes" then you conveniently forgot problems associated with 8,9, and 10 speed or you're a new rider who believes stories spread by morons.

People love to reminisce, revel in tales of the good old days. I fall victim to this as well. I miss car vent windows, prefer analog gauges, miss that am/FM push button radio and even roll up windows. Tell you what I don't miss... cycling equipment from the past.

Fact is; old systems were plagued with problems. Did you forget about 8 speed chainsuck? The cogs/chain interface was disastrous back in the day! The chain would literally defy gravity, remain locked onto the 22t and tear a hole into the chainstays. Sun Ringle actually design a product "Antichainsuckdevice" that bolted behind the bottom bracket to help eliminate damage! A bandaid on the problem and available in anodised colors.

Need a reminder of the 9 and 10 speed shit show? Bending 1st and 2nd gear on the cassette was an epidemic! Chain lines were atrocious! Mending a busted chain on the trail a common occurrence. Bottom bracket clearance, with multiple front rings, also a disaster. You were guaranteed a bent big ring if you so much tagged a log.

There is no conspiracy! Rather than wasting time reading false propaganda clean your bike, especially the chain. While you're at it, stop cross chaining, align the hanger, pick the crud out of the cassette and don't forget your jockey wheels and people, Please, PLEASE stop dropping the term "Planned Obsolescence" and buy a chain check tool. They're only $10-$25 bucks.

The public will only pay so much. The end price of an item forces it will be built to a certain quality. Are you willing to pay $150 for a chain that last 3,000 miles? Didn't think so. Be happy with what you have. Chains last about 1200 miles on the road, and around 4 months in the woods.

Your chain is cooked at .75! Overcooked at .85.

I scan my surroundings, a survival instinct ingrained in my DNA. Being hyper aware of who's coming and going, both a blessing and a curse. I've avoided confrontation thanks to careful observation, minus the occasion lot lizard, those sad unwavering types.

Yet, the suburbs are a fairly safe haven. I play a little game to keep my skills sharp. I call it: "match the person".

You're standing online at the deli, ordering your bacon egg and cheese... I could be in close pro...ximity sizing you up. I scanned the vehicles before entering said establishment. Instantly, with 100% accuracy, I can match the vehicle that belongs to you. Range Rover guy... no socks, slacks and a pastel short sleeve. Silver haired older Italian, embroidered cane, Cadillac STS. Lady in high boots, jacket covering her bum, Sienna mini van. Guy with box cutter and glove too small for his hands... White Ford Bronco.

Seems like a waste of a God given gift I know, but wait! I'm fortune to implemented my talent every day (Well, Tuesday-Saturday). You my friend belong on a certain bike. The size a no brainer... Style/model? That's where I come in. Stop stressing internet research. I got this.

This is what we can do with 100 mm of travel and our newly configured Switch Infinity. It’s the best climbing bike in our line, but it defies logic when you poi...nt it downhill. Turns out, 100mm travel bikes can be fun, playful and full of shred. If some people assume it's a downhiller's bike, whatever… Call it what you want. To us, it's simply the SB100.

Ex Machina

A technological singularity is on the horizon. Brilliant minds are petrified. The general public, clueless.

But my front shifts are faster.

...

The situation facing the future of mankind is perilous. Perilous and tragic. Tragic because we know it's coming, yet we do nothing to stop it... Worse, we run towards it! Humanity, as of now, can't prevent the collision of the Andromeda galaxy, but can prevent this.

But my front shifts are faster.

We have an insatiable appetite to adapt technology into everything, even the mundane. Streamlining Bluetooth into anything is a bad idea, especially when it's woven into the foundation of our survival.

But my front shifts are faster.

I know what I'm about to suggest will never happen, but I'll say it anyway... Running our power, water delivery, satellites, our entire infrastructure into and out of a digital porthole is a recipe for disaster.

But my front shifts are faster.

Mechanical systems need to be implemented back into society! They worked once upon a time, they will work again. This message will have some of you chuckle, some of you cry.

But my front shifts are faster.

Down Cycles has delivered a message to all. Now is time to respond. The Devil in a White City was busted by a bike shop! Why can't a bike shop save the world?

But my front shifts are faster.
