Bike Check: Sam Hill's Ferrari Themed Carbon Mega 290 - Trophy of Nations Finale Ligure 2019
The question is just why the head tube badge has the Hungarian flag in it... (The Ferrari logo has the colours ordered Green, White, Red...)

Day 2 Randoms - Eurobike 2019
That Bulls bike must surely be a night shift variant of the 2020 Orbea Oiz? Looks like the exact same shape and colours..

10 Mountain Bike Hip Packs Ridden & Rated
I bought the evoc bag featured above this summer when needing to replace my old (I mean 10+ years old..) camelback. I have up until this point dismissed fanny packs as a silly fad and stupid looking, but honestly that bag is seriously good. The elastic waist band was the biggest or only reason I chose that bag over all others, as it actually allows me to cinch it down but still be able to breathe without the buckle digging into my stomach or being too restricted. It's snug but secure.

Leatt Convertible Full Face Helmet - Crankworx Whistler 2016
@slimboyjim: Don't get me wrong, I am all for the improved protection, but I question the marketing of it where they literally label it "Enduro" and state that it replaces a proper FF helmet for timed stages.

Leatt Convertible Full Face Helmet - Crankworx Whistler 2016
@WAKIdesigns: Wait, did my architect friend who rides an (awesome) full carbon long travel bike with a convertible helmet get offended by what I wrote? Sorry..... Jokes aside though, I'm a strong advocate of knowing ones limits. If I'm not feeling up to it, I'd rather swallow my pride and walk around. A crash can still be painful as fvck, flimsy chin guard or not. And when the PR material states that it's designed to replace proper FF helmets on enduro stages, I'd say that's endorsing it.. Sure, a lot of top riders would probably race in an OF helmet if they were allowed to, but I don't see them being the main risk group here.

Leatt Convertible Full Face Helmet - Crankworx Whistler 2016
I guess they really should have named it the Leatt Dentist 3.0. On that matter actually, what is the deal with "3.0", did we miss the first 2? Isn't this Leatts first open face/semi whatever offering?

Leatt Convertible Full Face Helmet - Crankworx Whistler 2016
Yeah, sorry, I forgot that things named "Enduro" often aren't actually aimed at people who, say, race enduro. I guess I'm not part of the target group of 40-somethings with more money than skill riding 8 grand 160 mm enduro bikes on glorified XC trails wearing back protection and almost-but-not-quite full face helmets..

Leatt Convertible Full Face Helmet - Crankworx Whistler 2016
I'm pretty sure that if it was certified for DH use, they would say so. The way I read the text is that the helmet and chin bar is certified, but NOT the helmet WITH chin guard, most likely because the interface isn't strong enough. But this is exactly the sort of arguments I foresee being followed by a trip to the dentist and/or plastic surgeon from having it collapse on impact as people expect it to be a proper full face lid, which it is not.
