Bell Super 2R Helmet - Review
Yup, that's a big noggin! ;-) I'm just saying anyone who normally buys a large sized helmet (like me) and is thinking of buying a Bell Super, to try one on for size first.

Bell Super 2R Helmet - Review
Note on sizing - my head circumference is ~59 cm and every other helmet I've bought in the last 20 years has been a large or extra large, but I just bought a Bell Super in medium and it fits perfectly, including wearing a thin bandanna to reduce sweat. So try before you buy. Didn't get the version 2 as it doesn't have the Australian Standard sticker (yet) and will also use it for commuting, so wouldn't risk a lawyer looking for a cheap excuse not to pay up...

Giant Reign 27.5 1 - Review
I own a 2013 Reign 1 and agree with you. At least they've killed OD2, but a pity they went back to pressfit. Not fussed about internal cables, actually prefer externals on my model since it's not routed under the bb and downtube, but I reckon that rubber downtube guard needs to be longer and a bit wider, as my aftermarket carbon guard has taken impacts higher and on the edges of the downtube.

Giant Reign 27.5 1 - Review
FWIW, I paid $AUD2.4k for mine (RRP was 3k), even with the better suspension and drivetrain that's a pretty big jump in only 2 years.

Video: Weather Alert - A Warning to Ignore
For sure! Some trails are built for lots of rain, so have good drainage and an appropriate tread surface. Others get destroyed by people who probably have no idea how much work goes into building them.

Been happy with these: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/au/en/g-form-elbow-pads/rp-prod109300 Will probably get a bit warm over summer in a month or two, but they are comfy.
