Just got back down the firebreak up the back of my house. My new top speed on the Giant Reign 2 is 77.9km. And that was with my XC helmet on which I just discovered is cracked right through from when I came off on the BMX track a couple weeks back. I'm am in the que for the new Fox Flux helmet. I don't usually do downhill, mainly just agressive trails, try to do stuff on the BMX track and quite a bit of road due to some nagging injuries and sun going down to early after work now. Do you think a can get away with just this helmet or do you think I should get a full face like Bell Ballistic or Specialized Deviant. The Speci looks pretty breezy. Is anyone using it just for agressive XC? Green Bicycle part Bicycle accessory Bicycle Carbon

Impressive, you kicked my butt. My personal best was 68.8 kmh on my Reign 2. Havent been brave enough to try for a similar speed on the Trance 0 !

Interesting place to mount the computer, or did you put it there just for the photo ?

Cheers.

Water was cause it started raining on the way home and had been drizzling just before the run so the track wasn't as scetchy as previous. No magnetic interference, it's a forestry firebreck so no traffic lights :) and I couldn't get wound right up as there was a walker heading up with a dog. Yeah, I busted my helmet at the BMX track so am in the que for a new Fox Flux :thumbsup:
