Long story short, I only used the helmet for one ride but it saved me from taking a rock to my right temple. I took an 8 foot fall off the side of a trail in Frutia, Colorado, named Moore Fun. I landed on my right side head and shoulders first and the helmet took a rock just over my temple. The helmet shell split but I didn't realize this until I got up, brushed myself off and finished my physical inventory. I had to throw the helmet away but it was worth every penny. I bought the lid for comfort and style but it performed its job and saved me from significant injury.

I used this pedal for two years. I switched form an older model SPD pedal to this Crank Brothers egg beater style because I was sick of the desert sand clogging up my cleats. This style has much better, even great, performance clearing mud and dirt. I also chose this pedal because I thought the platform around the egg beater would help for those times when I don't quite get clipped in or for just riding around the camp site in my chacos. The platform is just big enough for that but you couldn't use regular shoes and ride on these pedals. The clip sticks up just enough that it's hard to keep your foot on. The only real issue i had, that might be fixed by now, was that the nut inside the casing that holds the outer cast to post and crank came loss and the pedal came off the post and was stuck to the bottom of my foot and the cleat. I did about 10 minutes of trail maintenance and got the nut back on just fine, and after the ride made sure there was some lock tight in place. I didn't have the issue again.
