Video: Gravel Bike Bar Drags as Halo Release Gravel Tyre Range
I like the breakfast analogy. I doubt many of us eat the same meal every morning or evening unless we are poor or have specific health issues. So why ride the same bike every day. It looked like great fun and an interesting challenge to me. So much so I went and looked at models and prices. Maybe ...

Review: 6 of the Best New Pedal-Friendly Knee Pads
The review is helpful to a point. But how do they perform in real crashes. Isn't that why we all wear these things? I get the standard tests, but as many others have pointed out whenever these things are reviewed, their actual performance in a crash can be markedly affected by their design. What would be really helpful I think would be survey results of our experiences of various pads in real crashes.

Review: 6 of the Best New Pedal-Friendly Knee Pads
Several years ago my mate and I came round a corner at Fox Creek in the Adelaide Hills (dry dusty with lots of sharp rocks embedded in and beside the trails) to find a couple where one had just crashed. He had gone down on his knee with no knee pads on. I made the mistake of looking closely at his injury. It looked like he had torn the patella off from the outer side exposing the underlying bone. I have never not worn knee pads (POC VPD 2.0) ever since that day. They have saved my knees on at least three occasions.

TweedLove on Breaking Down Barriers for Women in Enduro
I don't understand why none of the women in any of the photos are not wearing a full-face helmet. Having had numerous crashes in conditions similar to those in the photos, I would have rearranged my jaw, or at least lost a lot of skin off my cheeks, on several occasions. In my experience when riding at speed on any kind of trail one would consider an enduro-style race trail, crashes happen suddenly and give me almost zero time to consider how I am going to hit the ground. Most of the folk I ride with wear light weight full-face helmets. I feel I must be missing some sub-text to the images, but not sure what that might be.

So here in Adelaide, South Australia we are in the midst of what the local fire service call a catastrophic fire danger day -- +40c temps and very high winds. If a fire gets started in the bushland it will be impossible to stop. This video is such a great relief and pleasure to watch - everything about the place is such a massive contrast to where I am now. Brilliant! Many thanks to you.
