I've got the Mojito X (check a few pages back for the link to see if Sport Pursuit still have them for 70 quid). Most comfortable helmet I've ever owned.

Yup, they still have them on. The POC ones are also there at £80, so trying to decide between the two. Haven't seen many people pull off the POC ones to be fair, but everyone in my club has a Kask (I've got the old Mojito) so wanted to try something different.

Unbuckling them first normally helps

I've got an octal. pretty mushroom-esque but it's proven scandi so I roll with it

Got a Mojito, great lid. Only complaint is the shape behind the ears can get in the way of the arms on my Oakleys, need a bit of playing to get them to sit right.

Tempted by the Protone on sportpursuit - bit more aero, less noise at speed and more low profile / less mushroom-like.

any tipps for a chain oil or wax? been using muc off c3 dry lube for a while but I find it shite. after letting it dry for almost 4 hours and put a 80k training ride into it the chain is almost black and greasy again.

I've been using this for the past couple of years, no complaints.

I stopped using waxes because they were collecting so much dirt. The guy at the local bike shop said I probably needed to wipe off more of the excess though.

avoid their bio dry lube too. goes on well and smells good. just wears off really quick… have to re-lube every 70 miles or so. chain stays somewhat clean though

i am also in the market for a new summer lube so I am all ears if anyone has any suggestions

This gear's decent, probably done about 200 miles since applying and have run it through a rag once in that time.

Have tried Purple Extreme, Muc Off and Motorex before, was going to try Molten Speed Wax but seems a lot of faff.

Big debate ongoing in the club about glasses going under/over helmet straps. Colin and Carol absolutely raging.

Le Tour is AMAZING this year. Record the days stage on ITV, get home from work and watch it from start to finish. Compelling viewing. Next coupla days are gonna be immense.
