Is your family feeling it?

The effort will test the limits of consumer spending as the draw of new technology competes with cellphone owners' more rudimentary needs and desires."

Dream Catcher

My first experience with full suspension, hydraulic disk brakes, and clipless pedals took about 10 rides to get adjusted/tuned and become familar with. I have 170+ miles of singletrack on this amazing peddler and I've managed to (mostly) stay mounted and unhurt as of late. Other than a few scratches and scrapes the bike continues to be fully availible. Me on the other hand, well, my first 10 rides found me sore, bruised, and/or bleeding while anticipating my next ride or wondering if I should ride again...at 50 I realized I don't heal/recover as quick as I once did. It’s not that I don’t have the nerve to attempt the deep dips, steep climbs, quick swoops, tight corners, long drops, and unending rocks, roots, mud, water, and dirt at speeds probably beyond me, because it’s all I want to do. This bike continues to cause me to ride dangerously above my ability and I'm lovin it! Knee and shin pads quickly became my favorite safety equipment and I don't leave the house without them!

Let's blame successful marketing and not the addictive properties (i.e., sugar) of the junk consumers choose to ingest. This cause for obesity is so wrong-headed...

"Childhood obesity is a growing health concern in the public sphere, but for many of us, it also hits close to home. But while public health campaigns have singled in on parents providing children with unhealthy nutrition options and with poor examples of healthy eating, new research indicates that some of the problem may lie with fast food companies and their overly effective marketing campaigns. A study has found that fast-food logos are branded into the minds of children from an early age."
