"Funnily enough, the helmet (POC Crane) was originally ordered from Cycle Closet, but they ultimately were unable to get it in in that size. Pumpt have them as well (I bought mine there), but it seems the S/M sizes are very hard to come by."

"Exactly. I previously believed that the sticker was required, but can't find that documented any where (only information on motorcycle helmets as mentioned by Gemma). I'm sure a fine for not having a sticker would be incredibly unlikely…"

"Motorcycle helmets are now allowed to be AS, AS/NZS, or UN ECE standard for legal use on Aussie roads.  A great outcome for riders, as motorcycle helmets can be *really* expensive. The ACCC undertook a review of same type of policy for…"

"Can you quote the relevant phrase or sentence? Maybe I'm missing something, I can't see any mention of the sticker there. (And I think Nathan couldn't find it either, hence his question)."

Hi all,Was hoping someone might be able to shed some light on requirements for helmets as most research I've done has come up pretty fuzzy.My parents ordered a POC helmet for my wife as a gift, via Amazon Australia (not international) from a store with a nominally Australian name. Now the helmet does have a label saying it complies with the required AS/NZA 2063 standard (and it is a model sold here), however neither the box or the helmet have the Australian Standard sticker on it (the one with…See More

Torrens Path riders - help with 'hit' & run

Hi all,I'm wondering if any members happened to be riding along the southern side of the Torrens, near the weir, around 6:15pm tonight?I was involved in an incident where a kid on a mountain bike moved across the path (without looking) into me as I was going past, knocking me off my bike. I assume I either clipped his wheel, or he went into my side.His mother was right behind him (coming over the weir). She checked on the boy (was fine), gave me a half-hearted sorry without even looking at me,…See More

"It's Kym McKay (somehow, Deputy Mayor). I don't have any links handy, but you can easily notice him as he uses his photo (and posts as Kym). He literally uses the pedal mafia line in almost every single comment."

"I know of one WT councillor who actively comments on every cycling article on the Advertiser, in opposition to what he deems "the pedal mafia"."
