Tear Offs - I see said the blind man to his deaf wife.. Tear Offs - I see said the blind man to his deaf wife..
Tear-Offs are a wonderful thing, after all they keep you on track and in a straight line and out of the Accident and Emergency Department don’t they? Perhaps we should think of them as essential safety wear, up there with knee pads and a spine protector?

First up you need lenses with tear-off posts. These are the small molded dimples that raise some 5mm high at either edge of your goggle lenses, don’t worry as they are not distracting, you can’t even see them from the inside. Top Tip - Whenever you buy a replacement lenses, always buy one with these posts on as you never know when you might need tear-offs, we do ride in the mountains and hills after all!

SafeTband and how it can help you. SafeTband and how it can help you.
As a rider progresses and they advance their skills, there is no doubt that they are pushing the envelope in order to go bigger and faster. In several instances, there are often risks associated with pushing the envelope. Fortunately, there is a North American company called SafeTband looking out for the safety of fellow riders around the world.

The SafeTband is a fabric pouch with an identification card on the inside that has a Velcro fastener that can be attached to the strap of a pair of goggles or any loops on a hydration pack or clothing. In order to maximize its efficiency and effectiveness, it is recommended that it be kept on the rider rather than attached to somewhere on a bike that can be overlooked in an emergency.

Rocky Mountain Flatline Pro: Preview of a Review Rocky Mountain Flatline Pro: Preview of a Review
What is long, squishy, and white and red? No, not that candy cane that you just found under the couch cushion...although I'm sure that is still ok to eat. What I'm talking about is Rocky Mountain's new top flight Flatline Pro DH bike. Don't get too excited as the review is still a ways off, but due to sheer boredom (the large amount of snow will do that to me) I've put together a little "preview to a review" article to get your blood flowing during these cold winter nights. Inside we have got Wade Simmons on video from 'Vegas to give us the low down on the Flatline, as well as far too many pictures!
