    Study finds work increases stress levels in MTBers

    I don't have a link to it, but take my word for it. Work is bad for your health.
    "There are those who would say there's something pathological about the need to ride, and they're probably on to something. I'd wager though that most of the society-approved compulsions leave deeper scars in the psyche than a need to go and ride a bicycle on a mountain." Cam McRea

    Tell me about it, I haven't had a ride in over a month and I just found a crack in my FS bike, so I have to work EVEN MORE to get it repaired.

    The weather's crap too

    This just in too: Being unemployed increases stress level in MTBers as well.

    Seems like a Catch-22...

    Heh heh, I have no doubt that work is bad for my health! However, being homeless and starving is probably worse. ;-)
    Have fun!

    Crash replacement maybe, it's an old Cannondale Prophet and it's certainly not a warranty issue that after six and a bit years of being hurled off jumps it's developed a crack. Between going for crash replacement or getting it tigged and heat treated I prefer the latter.

    We'll see, I like the bike so I'd rather keep it if possible.

    Oh shite its the grammar nazis. Keep watching my posts, let me know when you figure out which part of the country Im in and that my accent is actually reflected through my typing. You should be able to quit your day job and make quite the living off following me around and correcting my grammatical errors.

    The phrases "should of" and "would of" are pet peeves of mine. I was unaware that you were typing using a dialect. From now on, I will treat your posts as if they were pulled straight from the pages of "Their Eyes Were Watching God".

    My entire point was, pet peeve or not. You should really find something better to do with your time then pointing out peoples grammatical errors. Grammar nazis are pet peeves of mine to be honest. Just my two cents.
