Zuckerberg didn’t make any friends in Europe today
“The Cambridge Analytica scandal was already in breach of the current Data Protection Directive, and would also be contrary to the GDPR, which is soon to be implemented. I expect the EU Data Protection Authorities to take appropriate action to enforce the law.”

Sweden distributes 'be prepared for war' leaflet to all 4.8m homes
The Swedish government has begun sending all 4.8m of the country’s households a public information leaflet telling the population, for the first time in more than half a century, what to do in the event of a war. Om krisen eller kriget kommer (If crisis or war comes) explains how people can secure basic needs such as food, water and heat, what warning signals mean, where to find bomb shelters and how to contribute to Sweden’s “total defence”.

Bombtrack Hook EXT Frameset
Designed to run on 27.5” rim (though 700s work just fine) and using a wider tire produces a wheel with the same outer diameter as a typical 700x28c. This means it’s possible to run bigger knobby mountain bike tires, with all the grip they offer, yet retain the geometry of a CX/gravel bike, something gravel racers have long dreamed of. This is made possible thanks to a specially designed frame that utilizes a wider bottom bracket and yoke to maintain a wide yet short rear end. The Columbus Cromor double-butted tubing has the perfect blend of being lightweight yet durable, perfect for gravel riding. For 2018 the EXT features a new full carbon fork, with anything cage and fender mounts, creating more options for front end luggage. Additional frame features added for 2018 include the invest cast chain stay yoke, dropper post compatibility and direct mounts for top tube 'fule tank' bag. This versatile frame is designed to offer as much all-round use as possible, so if your journey is mainly on-road, swap out the wheels for a set of 700c’s, with clearance for anything up to 45c tires.

Curve Engineering Klonzo MKII titanium enduro hardtail gets more aggressive
This frame looks like it was made by Waltly Ti. Not that there is anything wrong with that — I have 3 Waltly frames that are excellent — but, if true, it’s a ~100% markup for the “Curve” name on the down tube.

The Entire Economy Is MoviePass Now. Enjoy It While You Can.
I’ve got a great idea for a start-up. Want to hear the pitch?

It’s called the 75 Cent Dollar Store. We’re going to sell dollar bills for 75 cents — no service charges, no hidden fees, just crisp $1 bills for the price of three quarters. It’ll be huge.

You’re probably thinking: Wait, won’t your store go out of business? Nope. I’ve got that part figured out, too. The plan is to get tons of people addicted to buying 75-cent dollars so that, in a year or two, we can jack up the price to $1.50 or $2 without losing any customers. Or maybe we’ll get so big that the Treasury Department will start selling us dollar bills at a discount. We could also collect data about our customers and sell it to the highest bidder. Honestly, we’ve got plenty of options.

If you’re still skeptical, I don’t blame you. It used to be that in order to survive, businesses had to sell goods or services above cost. But that model is so 20th century.

Soulcraft Dirtbomb
We've been offering this bike as an option for 10 years; but you had to ask nicely to get one. And it didn't have a name. And it wasn't on our website. But now the Dirtbomb is officially on the scene. Sometimes it's easier to describe this bike by what it's not. It's not a 29r with a big ole' fork and room for big tires, and it's not a skinny cross bike designed to be set up like a road bike. It's just sweet. Built around the Panaracer Fire Cross 700c x 45c tires, this machine begs to be taken everywhere. It's the bike we take when we have no idea where we're going. The 45c tires offer more cush for off-road jaunts than a 35c, while not weighing you down on the road like a mountain tire. The geometry falls somewhere in the neighborhood of the Groundskeeper, slightly Northwest of the Option 3, a little South of the Holy Roller, and dead center of "just right". When people see the Dirt Bomb, the usual response is, "Oooooh. That's what I need!" Available as frame and fork, "chassis", or complete bike. Also available in a single speed or fixie version.

Review: Singular Peregrine
My loaner had Kenda Karma 29×2.0 tires installed. The frame didn’t leave much clearance for any- thing more aggressive, but Marty says you can get up to 700x45s with fenders if you wanted to go smaller.

SOMA Fabrications Saga Disc Frame Set
Our robust Saga Disc frame set is ready to take you on adventures all over the planet, It is purposely designed to ride better loaded up than naked. This updated version now fits tires up to 2.1", but the 700c models will longer fit road triple cranks. We recommend using MTB triples or doubles, which make more sense more cyclists go to wider, more sure-footed tires. It is also slightly lighter than previous year models (not that weight should be a major concern when buying a loaded touring frame) - Specially chosen Tange Prestige heat-treated CrMo tubing; 31.8mm butted downtube and top tube for a stiffer front triangle. Larger frames have slightly thicker gauge tubing.

Salsa Cycles Marrakesh
Marrakesh is our world-touring bike, designed for fully loaded, rugged exploration. Marrakesh is stable and predictable when heavily loaded, and durable enough to be strapped down to the roof of a bus jostling over a remote pass. Turkish dust around the bottom bracket and mud from Thailand’s monsoon season make just as much sense on this bike as all the stickers from the other countries you’ve visited do. When you’ve decided to stop dreaming and actually make that year abroad a reality, Marrakesh is ready to pile on the miles.
