Ive always done mine snug. Cant say ive ever had a stem rip on me. IMO the rim lock is there for a reason. If the tire doesnt spin the tube shouldnt either.

Had to double check because i was 110% sure i saw a snell rating. F2 helmets are snell rated. Not the formula.

Why do we have to sit in dead silence when every other sport has good announcers? The sx announcers arent good and it needs changed.

You know the fly helmet is snell rated right? Id rather have the puncture protection of snell combined with anti rotation tech such as mips...

First thing i look for is a snell rating. 2nd thing is mips or a similar system. Obviously a reputable brand is important too. Shoei, Bell, Fly, etc... I run a shoei RF1200 on the street and a Bell moto 9 flex MC replica for the dirt. The shoei i have ... more »

They can trademark the name “kawasaki green” but they cant copyright a color. Theres millions of colors and no way to prove the exact shade. What are we gonna do limit the use of every shade of blue because everyone copyrighted them?
