okay, so i'm not allowed to sleep until about, another hour says the doc. but anyways. i got a grade 3/2 concussion today. there's a funbox kinda its 3 inclines a table and a rail on the other side i hit it like diagnoly landed on my front wheel flew over the bars ate shit and slid across the pavement. i don't remember anything from it but this is what i've been told. after that i tried to ride my bike to the mini mart for some Tylenol and kept falling off and putting my head down. so i took like 4 tylenol because i didn't know what was going on and fell asleep on the curb. my friends woke me up and i kept saying i was fine to them i guess? and then i went home while they went back to the park without saying anything and i fell like 20 times. then i finally got home and threw up everywhere for about 3 hours. after 4 hours i felt way better. that's my 3rd concussion this year. i'm starting to think about wearing a helmet but my old ones all beat up from woodward '09. so if you have any suggestions post them. and sorry about the pointless posts...it''s so boring...i'm sooo tired. now to the review.

Eclat surge pc pedals.
These pedals are possibly the best pedals i've ever rode. My old pedals barely gripped my shoes at all. my shoes are nike air force 1's and have terrible grip on almost every pedal. but not these ones. these pedals grip better than osiris shoes on odyssey twisteds. and i also like that they're bigger than twisted so they're comfier to ride/pedal. they're somewhat dirty but hardly as all, so i'm going to say a 4/5 for staying clean. especially with the bumpy platform for grip. really great pedals. don't really know about durability but i've heard people saying about the bearings blowing out. but there's not too much to say besides. buy em'! they're amazing pedals probably the best i've ever had. now i seriously think i've spent so much time typing this i can sleep!!

Edit: my friend kept bitching about his shoes and i was like completely lost from hitting my head and kept saying fuck you my forks are better...lol i don't remember saying it one of them just told me about it.

Not good man, its worth investing in a helmet! it could be the difference between paralysis and not!

If you value your brain then you should wear one, even though its "not cool" its less cool being paralyzed

I wear a helmet anytime I ride a skatepark, no question. and if im trying something serious at a street spot, i usually try to bring it along. like if im going to a big handrail spot, or some big stairsets.

but anyway, get a protec skate classic, a lot of ppl get the clear ones, i think theyre super light and comfy. mines getting old, i might have to invest in one of them too

wear a helmet. your brain cells dont regenerate like all the other cells in your body so when you hit your head and kill cells in the process youll never get them back. i always wear a helmet except when im just cruisin

Definitely, nothing wrong with a little bump to remind people to wear them brain buckets! Although I'd like to point out a helmet doesn't make you invincible it just helps to protect your brain/head in the event of a fall. Also you can still get a concussion wearing a helmet but wearing a helmet is bettter than nothing.

@FuckyoCult..... If I were you I'd edit that post. If Luke_dawg wanted to be a real dick he could screenshot your comment and report you to the police, shit like that is taken seriously.

I'm sorry, I am going to be an ass for a second.

EVERYONE! GET A DAMN HELMET NOW.

End rant.

Get one that is certified. Laser makes some AWESOME helmets. Stay away from the Bucky because they are not cerified, meaning they are not able to protect from impacts as well.

And to those saying "you look like a fag for wearing one just cruising", you never know what could happen.

I think wearing a helmet is very protective. I think you guys should look at Bret Bananasandwich and consider, do i wanna not be able to talk and have to relearn a lot about life and existing just from a simple crash that goes the wrong way? My answer to that question is a no. Also ask, what if i forget a few things and am plagued by headaches for the rest of my life, will looking not as "cool" as people without them be worth it? Again, my answer is no. Plus it scores big with MILFs ;D So guys, having a helmet that is good, is GREAT! I will admit, im not always gonna ride with one, i trust myself enough to ride without one at most times, but i do try to wear one as often as possible. Look into Bell helmets also, they seem to have the best if you ask me, they wont ruin your brain if you land on your head. So go ahead, dont wear one, it may be the choice that affects your life a lot.

I agree with you completely Dave. Wearing a helmet in my town is a law too so I guess you have to have one unless you don't mind being fined. Anyway, not all Pro-Tec helmets are rated for biking as pointed out, so stay clear from the skate helmets. Their impact standards are lower than a bicycle specific helmet. I ride a Pro-Tec Chase Hawk helmet which is ASTM, CPSC, and CE certified for bicycle use and impact standards. Do your research because not all "bike" helmets are certified to withstand the potential impact/abuse you may throw at it. Also, old helmet's protection degrades with time. Sure, you can still get a concussion with a helmet but it's better than a cracked skull and brain hemorrhage.
