    Review Troy Lee Designs 7855 Armoured Shirt

    Touch Wood not yet but I replaced the back with one from the racer as it’s too heavy/sweaty and quite droopy like some of local round my way

    Review Troy Lee Designs 7855 Armoured Shirt

    I bet it gets sweaty with that one, I’ve always likes the look of it though, if I take a hit my ribs won’t be covered atm….probably should consider something really like Zimmer said the foam makes for sweat and offers little in terms of actual protection

    Review Troy Lee Designs 7855 Armoured Shirt

    I use the knox urbane pro, it has a seperate chest piece you can insert which is great, the back is a slop of thing with poor vents and because it’s not rigid enough the grid vents get filled so I tend to swap it out with the racer pro one I have which is another good too but not as covered as...

    Review Troy Lee Designs 7855 Armoured Shirt

    You’ve answered your own question, 90% won’t bother, have a hospital trip and have their mtb career ended early, this stuff reduces the risks of that so I think it’s worth the cons. @Zimmerframe is the legend of offs, special ones too but hasn’t gone for the full motocross stuff and yours looks...

    Are expensive bike lights a rip off?

    I just like the wider beam and how it’s laid out, I don’t like the torch ring of the exposures as much, Rob managed to make them look absolutely woeful compared to magicshine but then I don’t think he activated the light properly The bulbs will burn hot so will fade over time thats for sure...

    What tyres? The Ultimate Tyre Thread

    Yeah your right. I’ve got the BB ultra soft, MM super trail, DHR2 maxxterra and so far in the slop schwalbe have worked better at clearing the mud out but like you’ve said before Maxxis work better at speed than the granny pace I like to set (but maybe I take pleasure in prolonging a scary dh...

    What tyres? The Ultimate Tyre Thread

    I can now remove a rear wheel easy, little did I know the mech could be pulled back further 🤣 I might actually do a maxis standard compound vs schwalbe ultra compound braking traction comparison video just to see if there is any slight feckin difference whatsoever……what do you guys reckon...

    Who's had COVID?

    You’re comparing Asprin side effects to the Jabs? What a LEGEND! 🤣 I’d not take Asprin or NSAIDs unless I really had too either but comparing x vs y is nonsense…there are zero long term studies. I hope that’s not a rational anyone actually used in justifying a jab Jesus wept…. VigiAccess...

    Who's had COVID?

    I’m glad sarcasm isn’t wasted on you 😛 Btw It doesn’t matter to me what you do, I hope you stay lucky ofc but people like your good self are being subjected to a lot of scaremongering and then attacking other people which really isn’t of a benefit to you or others. Your so far down that hole...
