Gyro makes some good ones, I was wearing a specialized but I am going to get a Gyro Zen this afternoon. Just remember you get what you pay for and your brains are rolling over rocks at 20mph in whatever you buy so don't go cheap.gubmentcheze said:That is sage advice. Glad to hear everyone is OK. I'm new to mtbm what can you recommend in a helmet?
Ouch!!!Joeshwa24 said:yeah the thorn in my back made a really nasty sucking and crunching sound as it came out....
Bell, Giro, Specialized, Fox (and others) all make good helmets, but they fit differently. Go for fit and comfort. If you're in the droopy-trousers crowd, you might want a skate style helmet.gubmentcheze said:I'm new to mtbm what can you recommend in a helmet?
Congrats on surviving to ride another day. :thumbsup:Joeshwa24 said:.... I am still very sore and I sprained my left wrist but hey I'm not laying dead in the New Mexico desert so I call it a win.
When I can ride again I will head back up there and get some picks of the spot.
I'm in Alamogordo, ton's of little trails like the one I was on right around town in the foot hills. Then when it warms up there are lots of world class trails a 10 min drive away in the mountains. Single Track, Jeep trails, killer climbs, and crazy fast descents; its a great place to live and ride. When your ready to head down let me know I can show you some really great stuff.LCdaveH said:Congrats on surviving to ride another day. :thumbsup:
Where in NM is this spot? I want to check it out sometime.
