Helmet & PBSF - Advice Needed
I'm looking for advice and ingenuity that would allow me to attach a PBSF safety light to the back a Giro Atlas II helmet. Please read further before replying.
One day I discovered a great way to increase my visibility while riding. By clipping one of my Planet Bike SuperFlashes) PBSF to the bottom piece on the back of my Giro Atlas helmet, the light was mounted high enough so that almost everyone would notice. Motorists (for a change) were slowing down and giving a wide berth before they passed me. In addition, the placement of the light on my helmet was helpful at times when I needed to turn my head or dismount. I was pleased with what I had found.
When it came time to replace the helmet, I found that the current models were made differently and did not accomodate my PBSF as my previous one did. This was so for helmets made by Bell, Giro, and other companies. I ended up buying the Giro Atlas II as it fit me best, safety light or not (www.giro.com
). Meanwhile, my former helmet is no longer usable.
I'm looking for advice from anyone who would know how to attach the PBSF to the helmet WITHOUT
ruining the helmet or the light. Is there a way?
I welcome any recommendations that you may have.
