Pinkbike Poll: How Many Crashes Before You Replace Your Helmet?
@sourdiesel: I'm with you on that. I replaced one helmet after a concussion crash, and a second one the next season, after a bell-ringer that broke my wrist. My rule is that if I have a decent headache afterwards, the helmet goes in the bin. You can always find a decent helmet on sale, but I've scrambled my brains too often to cheap out on head protection these days.

Stranger than Fiction - Opinion
I worked with a guy who often rode a local trail, famous for having an hawks nest on it. The hawks tended to get a little protective in the spring, and would swoop on bikers from above. One day they took a friend who had never ridden that trail before, and put him in the front of the pack heading uphill. Dude had almost made it to the top when he got dive-bombed. He dropped his bike, screamed like a girl and took off running, yelling and thrashing his arms ... while the rest of the crew almost peed their pants laughing.

Stranger than Fiction - Opinion
I was riding a downhill trail in Fernie a few years back with a girlfriend. She was ahead of me, and fairly flying, and a moose erupted out of the undergrowth right next to the trail. If it had cut across the trail she'd have slammed right into it ... thankfully it reared up and then bolted away. She needed a few minutes to calm down after that.

Pinkbike Poll: Flat or Clipless Pedals, What do you Ride?
I just can't get comfortable going downhill on clips. I like the pedal right under the centre of my foot when I point down, and none of the clipless cleats go back that far. I swore off clips when I saw a friend take a huge crash and screw herself up. She hit a log hidden in long grass on the edge of the trail with her pedal, went straight up in the air, landed on her chin, and badly twisted her leg and hip coming down because her clips didn't release. No thanks. I'd rather slip a pedal occasionally.

Pinkbike Poll: Flat or Clipless Pedals, What do you Ride?
No Teva any more? I love my Links and wear them all summer for trail riding and commuting ... what the hell am I going to replace them with?

Long Live the Kooks - Opinion
I'm remembering the article I read about the café in a small town in New Zealand, that banned tight lycra-wearing middle-aged road bikers because apparently being dressed like that was "obscene" and not "family friendly". Each to their own. At least those dudes understand that all good rides end with beers.
