    Do you wear ear plugs?

    Thread Starter: 1/32 man

    A mate showed me some he had custom made at an audiologist...said they were good but cost him $150. Are there cheaper but still effective options. After today’s ride of about 70mins I am contemplating using some. Any comments or opinions welcome.

    Is there such a thing as quiet helmets?

    Thread Starter: 1/32 man

    Having recently got back on a bike I needed to gear up as economically as I could. I bought a Bell qualifier helmet from TM $200 On recent rides the wind noise seems to have got worse and on inspection the left visor mount/clip/swivel doesnt seem right. After some pushing, cussing, jiggling...

      At least I was game enough to make my prediction in October - you don't see Tamati predicting that far out!

      Also, after about 11 of these - it's been wet more times than dry...looking forward to a sunny one!

      Excellent job - thanks Bandit rider...I was on the ride...but didn't much enjoy the bits you didn't show - the windy stuff over the top to Pongaroa in the misty rain - damned glasses and visor fogged up every 2 mins...and the windy stuff from Pongaroa with a stream of faster riders wanting to pour past and enjoy the finish line instead of the ride.Mark
