nothing on your head in my opinion is ever overkill, just sometimes you have to sacrifice a bit of safety for a little bit of comfort. if it doesn't bother you by all means wear it in my opinion. It might look silly for just some trail riding but wont look as silly as being in a wheel chair for a preventable head injury.

Protection-wise its not overkill, but you will suffer in the comfort/weight category. I was in the same boat a while back, when I was stepping up from riding dirt jumps to more gnarly slope style/free ride with a lot of BIG gaps. Jumps with a lot of consequence. I just couldn't go hard in my regular old lid knowing the potential damage I could suffer. I also ride Moto so I thought "what the hell I'll just rock my full face Moto lid". Not a great choice. While it's fine for Mx, the helmets are just way too heavy, hot and constrictive for riding MTB.

Invest the $ and get a good quality full face lid if you're doing some serious riding. It's your brain after all, can't put a price tag on that

You guys were right, it is too heavy, cumbersome and hot! I am starting to shop for a proper helmet now.

thats a good helmet, mine fits perfectly, i love it. i tried on the new bell super and it felt weird. like i barely notice my flux is there but the super was weird, definitely more coverage though

do any of you wear ankle braces while riding? i rolled my ankle yesterday riding bmx at the skatepark haha, im looking for something that would be low profile for biking if any of you have any in mind

Didn't like the flux the first two times I wore it . I re adjusted it today and it feels much better. Can barely feel it now . It was too tight .

I was in between a S/M and L/XL but slightly closer to the S/M so I went with that one. I hope its not too small or tight.

just picked up a Kona Stuff the other day, excited to get out on some trails. It's not stock by any means, which sucks when trying to figure out what it will need for parts/service, but for what i paid, i really cant complain. I think it needs a new chain, and i need a shock pump to pump up the marzocchi drop off fork a little bit..

I'm really enjoying the diamondback . The shimano SLX derailleurs shifts quick and smooth and shimano deore hydraulic brakes 180/160 work great . Also happy with the wtb wolverine tires it came with.

Shimano brakes blow doors on Avid brakes in my opinion iv ran over 2 dozen sets off Avid breaks everything from juicy's to codes to elixers to BB7s and on my last few bike builds iv used the new Saint, SLX, XTR. something about the Shimano's makes them feel sooooo much better, every set of avids i have ever used fade before i even burn out the pads...then i bleed them and after that they feel ruined. I also switched to Shimano drive train now still not sure if i like the SRAM or Shimano shifting better yet, i do like the 1:1 ration SRAM uses makes adjusting much easier but like you said the snappy shifting on the Shimano stuff feels pretty solid, my only complaint with shimano is dealing with any warrenty stuff with them is tough, sram would send me new brakes or derrailurs in a heart beat if i said something was wrong
