Fox Launches New Flux Helmet - Bike Connection Winter 2018
Honestly I don't buy helmets based off look primarily. I want to know the features...I like the features of this, but need to see one super critical thing not included. Where is a picture of the inside of the helmet where your head sits? I like to know how the removable pads are connected/designed/shaped on the forehead. I am sweaty. The last flux I had would collect sweat off half my head and concentrate it in the forehead padding. It would then release it on my glasses during the first big jarring motion(ie on the fun parts after the climb). And then I would have to ride with effed glasses or stop(killing my flow and strava time JK) and clean them off. It really became one of my mandatory requirements of helmet padding. If they have too big of a pad on the forehead, or it all connects to the forehead pad, it is a no go for me....and I cannot see an image of the inside. So, I will pass...until I see proof they changed it....

2018 Farm Jam MTB, BMX and FMX highlights – Video
That was the best farm jam yet! Was that a decade triple whip in bmx?? The whips in moto were rad. The mountain bikes had a lot of equally skilled riders. It seemed like there weren't as many standouts in all events. Everyone shredded.

The REAL Story of That Single-Sided Carbon Fork
@baggyferret: I never mentioned bearing problems, even though other's did. I don't know why you are so sensitive about this. They suck, it's my opinion. From experience. Get over it.

The REAL Story of That Single-Sided Carbon Fork
@baggyferret: yes I have taken one apart. There are certain versions which are more ridiculous than others. You obviously haven't acquired the taste for proper suspension performance. Lefties leave much to be desired. And now when they need serviced, you usually send the thing back to cannondale...lame. I guess you're lucky you like yours and can easily service it. That is not the case for all of them. I'm not the usual lefty hater who has no experience with them...I have taken them apart, and I have also ridden one. They suck. They are plenty stiff and light though.

MTB Trials in the Mojave Desert – Video
That is some serious skill. Very well made, and very good riding. It's interesting to see the contrast between a core trials rider and some of the "street trials" macaskill types while on more "street trials" terrain. Their take on it is quite different, and what the pure trials bike lacks in street geometry seems to hold it back a bit. I am not trying to take away from this video, I'm just saying it how I see it. Granted I rode some street trials, never pure trials. It would be interesting to me, to see a pure trials rider on some insane trials competition course. I have a hard time not looking at this as lacking a little in street moves and flow. The rollouts look awkward with that low long front end. It would be cool to see him on pure trials stuff since he is 12x trials champ. That video was awesome though, it did make me want to go pedal kick some gaps...and I haven't wanted to do that in a while.

The REAL Story of That Single-Sided Carbon Fork
I don't see why people downvote you, it's a legitimate question if you haven't dealt much with lefties....fyi they suck because manipoo makes the internals, and they are too complicated to be good at anything for too long, and a pain to service, requiring proprietary poo tools....

The REAL Story of That Single-Sided Carbon Fork
Because the biggest issue with lefties is trying to have a good reliable spring, and good reliable damping, is next to impossible while maintaining high performance in just one tube. Leaving two tubes makes a lot more sense, since the industry has spent so long refining damping and springs for that size of space(independent tubes).
