POC Octal Helmet - Review
No, I didn't say that. I've tried on POC ski helmets. Like most helmets, they fit a certain head shape. My head doesn't fit their ski helmets. I tried, but no luck. So if their bike helmets are designed around the same head shape, it is unlikely it will be comfortable for me. Are you following me?

POC Octal Helmet - Review
You don't need to spend $300 to get a comfortable helmet...not even close. In fact if the fit is like their ski helmets I know it wouldn't be comfortable for my head shape. These are flimsy justifications for conspicuous consumption.

Moroteman, There is nothing to say a $300 helmet protects better than a $30 helmet.

Transition Scout 1 - Review
Still rockin the Pitch. Something a little more radical will need to come out to get me to switch.

POC Octal Helmet - Review
MendelMu, What are we to look up? If you have any scientific data that shows greater reduction in head injuries due to these helmets, I'd love to read it. I too am interested in preventing head injuries. I actually remember reading a study in the 1990's that made a casual relationship that the less you paid for a helmet the greater protection. They concluded this was because the cheaper helmets had more material, due to less vents, and a rounder shape, due to less aerodynamics.

POC Octal Helmet - Review
"Honestly I can't think any brain that thinks this helmet is worth $300 is going to be worth $300. It is a subtle irony, isn't it?" Best helmet comment I've ever read. I only click on helmet reviews to read the inevitable justification of conspicuous consumption, "how much is your brain worth."

Pinkbike Poll: What Do You Want to See in Videos?
No driving for the trailhead, no pulling the bike out of the truck, no reading a map, no putting goggles on, no spinning the crank backwards etc. All of these make me embarrassed to be a mountain biker. Take a cue from skate vids.

Pinkbike Poll: Mountain Biking - What Should it Cost?
I always thought the huge cost was what attracted a lot the of bikers as many are conspicuous consumers. I love when I hear, "so and so is so serious about biking...their bike cost..."

Poll: Are Diggers Approaching the Tipping Point?
Perhaps bike companies could take a lesson from skateboard companies and buy land and build. Vans, Etnies and Volcom have built public skateparks
