Bell, Giro, Fox, and TLD all make good helmets. There a lot of smaller companies making good stuff too, but they can be a bit hit-or-miss.

I would strongly suggest trying on and buying in person if you can. You might pay a bit extra, but you want to make sure you get a good fit.

Finally built my frame, built it super light cause I mainly do pumptrack and bmx.
Quick bike check

Commencal absolut (2021)
pike, with charger 2 and 26 lowers (2015 except for the damper)
easton haven carbon wheels (2012)
hutchison tires (??)
sram x0 (2012)
easton haven carbon bars (2012)
formula the one rear brake (2009)
spank stem (2011)

PS: very pleased to not having spent one single euro beside the brand new frame! #reCYCLing

Wow that’s insane that you got (or had) all those parts! That shows if you’re patient you save a lot of money. What’s the weight?

Actually swapped the tire,s after the first test on dirt, the 2.0 were way sketchy...found those ardent/cougar in the cave, way better and I went full banana with tubeless setup!

weight is 9.6kg with pedals!

Definitely trying stuff on in person is the way to go. POC also makes excellent helmets.

guys my outside bearing came out for my pedal and i can't find any replacements. it is a vsixty b87 but i was wondering what is a good pedal with metal pegs under 70 cad (53 usd, 40 pounds) and under 400 grams each. got any ideas that you once had or think is good?

Doesn't get much better at that price then chesters. Only other one i'd peek at are the oneup composites.

Disagree, I am not a fan of the chesters at all. Platform shape doesn’t work for me. Nukeproof Neutron EVO’s are about the same price and have much better grip and feel.
