    Cheer up you two, these packs may be a ridiculous price but there is plenty to be happy about 😀

    Just the thing for an Insulate Britain protest.

    I like the format of this article. It showed me some reviews which I’d missed – I usually read *all* backpack reviews. Other topics? Full-face helmets, what-tyres-for-<insert surface here>, dropper posts. It might be tricky to find classes of review which haven’t been used as a group test already.

    Good ideas, Thanks. Glad you like the format.

    You know what I’d absolutely love, I’d a review of well ventilated full face helmets for people with huge heads.

    Alas I know you won’t do one as they just don’t exist 😔

    No.. I think you are mistaken. I’ve seen some people with really big heads. Definitely a thing

    @thegeneralist: My ageing 661 Evo fits a 62cm head with room to spare, and is better ventilated (until I stop and there’s no airflow!) than the XC helmets I’d been using. So recent 661 helmets might be worth a look.

    I agree to a large extent, possibly even extra large, rfreeman, but not fully.

    I’ve got an XXL 661 with the mips liner ripped out, and it does indeed fit quite nicely, but is really badly ventilated. Looks like the model is the Reset.

    Still loads better than the alternatives where I had to get busy with a hot spoon gouging chunks of polystyrene out 🤣

    Yours sincerely

    @thegeneralist: Oh dear. Thanks for the data; I’ll avoid that one.

    @thegeneralist we did review these, though not specifically for big heads: https://singletrackworld.com/2020/02/3-full-face-trail-helmets-head-to-head/

    As the age old proverb says, there are three types of accountant in the world, those that can count and those that can’t and I second that motion for a fat head helmet test.

    @hodge1365 as a former accountant i find that a bit harsh, i would tend to ask my client/customer what number they wanted to see and then calculate that accordingly..

    I like the format!

    I still miss through the grinder in the magazine, although I appreciate it’s unlikely to return.

    Tests I’d like to see

    Clipless shoes that are passable for cycling to work and wandering about

    Bike stands- as in to stop a bike falling over, not working on.

    We were scheduled to record episode 2 tomorrow but unfortunately Hannah’s caught Covid so she’s isolating at home until next week.
