comment Getting back on the bike after bad fall, how do I get over my fear?
If you are mountain biking with clipless pedals as well you might want to give flat pedals a shot. One less problem/mechanism/technique to worry about when riding.

comment Should I not use a trail because of poor conditions?
@Vorac You should read the scientific studies to see how they tested/measured it. I think we should rely on scientific studies rather than personal anecdotes.

comment Should I not use a trail because of poor conditions?
@Vorac The point is that hikers and bikers do the same amount of damage to the trail. A motor vehicle does a lot more harm than either of them. I have no idea why you bring up that comparison. And sure, trails will be muddy in the spring, but build footbridges over the worst mudholes and you have already fixed 90% of the damage.

comment Are helmets with chin guards safer than those without?
And there was also the Giro Switchblade. dirtmountainbike.com/featured/… The new Met Parachutes does however look promising, so it might have had the bugs finally sorted out.

comment Are helmets with chin guards safer than those without?
The Met Parachute has, as far as I know, basically been the only non-downhill helmet with a chin guard. There might have been good reasons for that because there are tales of riders getting their face stabbed by chin guards that have broken off.

comment How to get my feet out of SPD pedals?
@7thGalaxy It is not posted as an answer either, but way to many beginners are pushed to ride with clipless "just because", and that is not beneficial for anyone.

comment What are some good flat pedal shoes for XC racing?
@DWGKNZ You don't need a stiff sole when riding flatties. You are standing on the pedal, and it provides the support and doesn't bend. Five Ten aren't particularly stiff either, although perhaps slightly more than skate shoes. They do however have a pretty thick sole. The main problem with skate shoes are the grip, not the stiffness.
