I think I have finally succumbed to being a true(er) roadie.
Last sunday went out on Boreas and had a slight problem with the neck by the end of the ride. It ached a bit.
Now being and EX- Mountain biker- I have always had helmets with peaks fitted. For offroad you need them.They may only be small but they do keep a lot of mud and other nasty stuff out of the eyes. But last Sunday I noticed one thing about that peak on the road ride- I could see it.
I had to raise the head just a bit higher to look forward on the road- and I supposed it was not helped by the fact that Boreas has the bars 3" below the saddle. So tonight I have had the helmet on to improve the forward vision. tried raising the front of the helmet but I felt exposed a bit so the final resort was to take off the peak.
Let you know after the weekends ride if it has improved vision and neck comfort.
