caps under helmets is plain wrong; unless:

you are bald and avoiding vent tan
-or-
you don't care about style

purists unite!

Have to admit, since this thread started, I've been noticing who does and does not wear caps.

I feel like they are slightly more acceptable for the super-early morning rides, otherwise safer to just say "no".

Only way I've found to keep sweat pouring off the sides of my face instead of into my eyes.

I wear them under my helmet in the spring when the roads are dusty. I wear hard contact lenses, and the smallest bit of grit that gets past the sunglasses is quite painful. The additional coverage of the bill helps block quite a bit of dust, and yes, my sunglasses are quite form-fitting.

I wear it when it's below 55F and/or raining, because it makes life a lot nicer.

I also use the bill to force myself to look ahead instead of down. The small bill is just enough to remind me.

Form follows function.
