Where Have All The Chin Bars Gone? - Jan. 17, 2022, 5:42 p.m.

I find the stage to be very comfy, but I’ve had good luck with TLD helmets. Went from D3 to the switchblade as I was tired of carting the D3 on my back for the road climb and wearing a different helmet. Found the switchblade to be very hot and eventually the chin bar didn’t work well. Switched to the stage and it was love. Even wore it for most of a hot and humid Hawaiian summer and it wasn’t too bad. Tried the bell family of helmets and none of them fit me well.

I’m not the only one! Thank you!

I do like me Uniqlo underwear but not for riding.

Ahh thanks for the response guys. Interesting perspectives.

So can I ask a question? I’ve ridden in Squamish/Whistler/Pemberton several times while on vacation and I’m always left with the sense that Canadians are too bad ass to wear glasses because I just don’t see a lot of glasses wearing. Now as a contact wearing in Hawaii, I always wear glasses when I’m riding, more so in the rain and mud. So are glasses not a must wear item?

You Should Try a Friction Thumb Shifter - Sept. 13, 2020, 11:04 p.m.

He used to come home on occasion and ride with the bike department manager of the shop I worked at and I was told he was a beast on our rooty and techy trails. We would occasionally find an old Bridgestone in the warehouse and all of would be sad when it was sold. Most of my riding crew has a Bridgestone in their past.

Suntour was ahead of the curve.

Shimano SLX Drivetrain Review - Aug. 26, 2020, 12:30 a.m.

I dislike the name ‘SLX’. No idea why, maybe it reminds me of their ‘STX’ grouppo from way back. Should have just kept ‘LX’.

I think I barfed a little bit reading your comment. Good job!

Dog poop vs cat poop? Which one is worse? I’ve had cat poop in the grill of my TLD D3 and let me tell you...that was nasty! I think you need to test it out! Hahaha.

Pearl Izumi Elevate Knee Pads - Aug. 10, 2020, 3:53 p.m.

Yes. Disappointed with my enduro armor not holding up and gloves falling apart. Haven’t been a fan in a while (the irony is I’m wearing a Fox T-shirt as I type this).

Why You Crashed on the Entrails Whale Back Rock - Aug. 7, 2020, 1:07 p.m.

I think I left a little skin on that rock. Nice breakdown. He makes it look very smooth.

Yes! Goes with everything.

Straight edged toenail clippers are awesome for cleaning up zip tie ends.
