Would You…? [helmet nazi content]
Was at Cannock yesterday and I forgot my helmet, I rode teh dog anyway… About half way round some dude in head to toe blue fox outfit came past saying ‘no helmet thats bloody stupid’ alas he was far too good for me to catch up to ask what business it was of his…Posted 6 years ago
Off at a slight tangent…
I was sat outside the cafe in Heaton Park a bit back. There was a family at the next table with kids and bikes. One of the V-Brakes on the bike next to me wasn’t hooked up (noodle out of cage), so I said “You’re brake is undone” and instinctively popped it back in. The dad gave me a look that suggested he wasn’t best chuffed.Posted 6 years agogeebusMember
I prefer to wait until somebody does, then ask why they’re not wearing a full-facer with neck brace 🙂 (the sort that do wear them are generally far too busy actually enjoying the riding to be worried about moaning at others).
(Never had anyone comment about my lack of helmet, which is fairly regular.)Posted 6 years ago
rizla your OP sounds like a troll, give it a while and people may get around to reading your clarification further down 🙂
Yes he was a bit of a tool.
It was probably unhooked so as not to drag on a buckled wheel
I think someone also said cheapy V brakes the cross bar connector tends to bend aswell so they won’t “hook up” anywayPosted 6 years agotheflatboyMember

Would or do you pass comment if you see people riding not wearing a helmet?
Why would you?
because there is no question that people should wear helmets to be safe on bikes, of course. 😕
though i wouldn’t mention it – overpopulation is the scourge of modern society.Posted 6 years ago

Really? I think you will find its actually very questionable 🙂 seeing as the evidence for helmets reducing head injuries is very poor to non existentPosted 6 years ago
fair enough, loads of parents unhook their kids front brake on purpose.. if only you’d had the social skills to speak to them first
It was instictive. Rear brake BTW.

Would not say it to a random stranger but would not rid eona regular basis with someone wh odid not wear a helmet. I have rideen without one when someone turned up without thiers and I lent them mine for the Gnarr bits as I have way more skillz innit.Posted 6 years ago
Re noodle my kids front was undone as he was trying to see how hard to pull it to go over the bars…..he would not listen so I just undid it now it is not hard enough to do this but he still keeps trying – should puta disc brake on that will teach him 😉Mr AgreeableSubscriber
Could it ultimately impact on other users? Through insurance costs etc?
Depends whether the injured party decided to sue the owner or manager of the trail centre, and whether they won.
Of course the same would apply if a cyclist wearing a helmet managed to injure themselves severely.Posted 6 years ago
