Re: I know I shouldn't be surprised any more ....

MLEH world? STW is like a drunken night out in the pub with all your work coleagues - its macho folk who dont really get on now pissed so its unlikely to be an outbreak of brotherly love [for there are next to no women which is also the case here]and macho arguing posturing happens.

Yes I gues its a bit long to easily mount to the top of your head without a helmet
I can think of solutions but all of them will look ludicrous - piping insulation is involved to both hold and protect :wink:

Re: That film is available

The Divide was made there was no rule prohibiting filming so it's not relevant to say a previous rider was filmed other than to make out she was being singled out.

As for her comment that it's been filmed before and the previous film was mainly about Matt, that was before the rules changed. That's like a current F1 driver saying they should be allowed a turbo as Alain Prost had one in 1986 It not really its more like saying they could film Prost racing then b...
