Opinion: Don't Shoot the Messenger
We can and do get mad. As a "journalist," we can expect him to report on matters of substance to the readers of the site. Hurricanes would matter to people - that SRAM article doesn't. But if he is to report on it, the least he could do is add ridicule to his writing to make fun of another solution to a problem that didn't exist. Just because another bike company is attempting to invent a new standard, doesn't mean it has to be reported on. By choosing what to write about, you help shape the culture of the sport. As readers, we get to tell you what we think of your choices. Here is an idea for an article Mike. Compare mountain bikes to skateboards. Skateboards haven't changed in over 20 years. Parts from the 80's still mesh with parts today. Nobody is complaining about it. The sport is still progressing. More focus is put on personal ability, and creating places to skate, than on the gear. When companies attempt to introduce new ideas, no one pays attention, and they are quickly dismissed. Also the price of a skateboard also hasn't changed in this time. Perhaps they are onto something.

Calgary's Frozen Rodeo
Above it says "6 comments." I read only three. Presumably the other three were censored. That means 50% comments were censored. Wow Pinkbike, wow.

Absolute Black Oval Chainring - Review
Another gimmick that will only serve to separate you from your money. It will not make you happier, and you would need a scientific instrument to prove it made you faster (if it did). Once it receives widespread acceptance, the powers that be can de-bunk the science behind it and convince you to go back to round rings again, just like they did with Bio-Pace.

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.
