Review: Giro's New Coalition Lightweight Full Face Helmet
@fracasnoxteam: No, because big helmet manufacturers in the moto world base their development in science rather than marketing like most of the cycling industry.

Review: Giro's New Coalition Lightweight Full Face Helmet
@wyric: I actually own it cause it's the only one I could find and I'm quite happy with it. However my rant is broader, especially with half shell helmets (excluding road helmets) which are hard to find without MIPS nowadays.

Review: Giro's New Coalition Lightweight Full Face Helmet
@cro-magnon: Not my fault that you believe all this marketing BS which MIPS is. The virginia test standards is not representative of real world situations and that's even claimed by employees. MIPS were just smart to develop a product that made testing results as safer and they are not to blame, I would have done it myself. If MIPS makes you feel safer, good for you. Keep paying a lot of extra cash for a product that is not proven to help you in a crash. I would rather have the option to not pay more for unnecessary and unproven devices. In some years time, these rotational BS systems will die just like fanny packs, livestrong bracelets, anti-vibrations stickers, magnetics bracelets, etc.

Review: Giro's New Coalition Lightweight Full Face Helmet
I wish companies would also offer normal versions of helmets without this snake oil of rotational impact BS at a lower price point. I'm struggling to buy helmets that don't have MIPS and I'm forced to pay more and later remove that stupid yellow layer and glue again all the liner back to the helmet.

Velo Digest: AXS Battery Solar Charging Patent, A Gearbox Gravel Bike, Assos’ $7000 Skinsuit, & More
"The court handed down two-year suspended sentences, including a requirement that the individuals wear electronic bracelets for a year. They had their driving licenses cancelled for six months and have been instructed to compensate their victims." There seems to be some financial compensation to the victims although this will never reach the crazy amounts awarded in the US. Good thing is they been caught and in case of a future infraction the sentence will be quite harsh. Also, now people know who they are are can always pay them a visit.

Pinkbike Poll: How Many Derailleurs Have You Actually Destroyed While Riding?
@dividebyzero: Cassettes are the problem in 11sp. Sram has always been shit, making an 10-36 and adding a 42. The jump between gears is terrible to the point that I'm wondering if they just randomly picked the cogs size. E13 has a 9-46 but it's also not good. Gear changing is precise but noisy and not efficient. Also the jump between gears is massive and who needs a 9t cog - probably just to brag about the range percentage. Shimano has an amazing XTR but it's 11-40, meaning that on a 29'' with a 32 you'll suffer in a lot of climbs, and you'll be spinning like crazy with that 11t cog. Tried also Garbaruk which is also crap spacing and the shifting is crap. So yes, the worst part about 11sp is finding a well executed lightweight cassette, I would have never changed to 12sp if that was the case. On the other side Shimano's 12sp 10-45 resolves all the issues mentioned above and the jump between cogs is just perfect and allows you to always find the right cadence which is impossible with any MTB Sram cassette.
