Any Mtn Bikers on RME?

My BIL is furious about that race. His kid thrashed his bike pretty bad.
SO MANY busted derailleurs got hiked across that finish line. I lost count of the number of broken chains. And I don't wanna know how many trashed freehubs and bottom brackets.

The league's policy is basically that if it's not a threat to life and limb, run the race and let the kids choose whether to ride. But of course the kids are gonna ride. The carnage today may end up forcing them to revisit that policy.IMG_3548.jpg

My boy talked me into taking him pedaling tonight. We went up by Farmington canyon. We rode up from the pond then down the King flo trail. What a friggin riot! We had so much fun we did it twice

I haven’t been on my bike in years and years and yes…years. I have zero skills and am horribly fat and old, but I really had a good time. Hopefully this lights a fire to keep me going

I rode the farm tonight too. Kings Flo is a riot, such a fun trail!

My XXL noggin is in a TLD helmet. I'll try and find the exact model. The Leatt's fit my head well too.
I have been looking at the a3s from tld, does anyone wear a full face? I used to ride with a lighter moto helmet way back when I thought I was cool. With the new bike thinking I might go with their stage models as they seem lighter than the d4 and I won't be doing any crazy jumping, just feel like I have been moving faster on the full suspension and can just see myself wiping out face first.

Mine is an A3 with MIPS. I really debated the full face when I bought this one last year. I'll probably end up with a full face eventually. It makes sense when you're doing 25mph plus down a skinny single-track.

Bingham has a POC Tectal XXL on closeout.

Awesome!! That’s 2 minutes from home. I’ll stop in tomorrow and try it on.

There is a used POC Tectal xxl on KSL for 100 bucks. But for 44 more I think I’ll get a unsweated in one

Thanks!

I’ve been wearing a POC Tectal for the last couple years. It’s been a good helmet but does not have MIPS. The front pad is starting to break down and POC wants like 30 bucks for a new one. I tried on a Fox Speedframe MIPS yesterday and it fit nice. I can get that for about $90 through Expert Voice. I may just do that instead of replacing the pad in my POC.
