Smith Rover Helmet - Review
@Clem-mk: It's very non-mushroom-esque (see photo that I've embedded). As I mentioned in the review, it's a more streamlined helmet than is currently the rage. It's not an out-and-out XC lid, but it has less rear coverage and slightly less bulk than the Forefront or most of the "enduro"/all-mountain helmets these days.

Devinci Django Carbon 29 X01 - Review
FYI, it's also available in a blue/yellow color scheme that you can see if you hit the link to their site at the top of the review. Sorry I failed to mention that. I'm sorta a monochromatic guy, so the black-white thing worked for me, but thanks for bringing it up. Cheers.

Let's Not Be A-Holes - Opinion
@Eatsdirt: Let me ask you--have you ever seen me flame someone? Ridicule them? Throw out a misogynistic or homophobic taunt? I know I haven't. I'm not saying I'm perfect. Hardly. I'm probably an asshole in some other corner of my life for completely different reasons. What I'm saying is that even when I disagree with people, I do my best to do it respectfully no matter how pissed I am (and, trust me, I get pissed). I'm not sure what you mean by inflammatory? I do write the way I talk and that may rub people wrong. My beliefs or my language may rub people wrong. And I'm completely cool with people taking issue with that. I'm all for a free and open dialogue. What I am saying we should avoid--and I'm including myself in the "We" here, as I did in the article--is that we should avoid being nasty and rude to one another. If I wouldn't say something to your face, I won't type it online. Furthermore, everyone knows who I am. There's no anonymity for me. I try and practice what I preach.

Hey, @fattyheadshok, thanks for chiming in. I've been thinking about your email for a good long while. Trust me, I'm as pissed as you about the move to sell off federal land. I'm working on a piece about it and, more importantly, like you I'm trying to figure out what I can personally do to help put a halt to it. I apologize for not responding to your email--a combination of brain fart and deadlines. My bad. Thanks for sending it.
