My second son (19 yrs.) has recently taken a real interest in cycling, which is a thrill to me. He told me wanted a bike to commute around campus in the city. I sort of reluctantly gave him my old Fuji Monterey, which was my spare bike. After he took it last week, I panicked in realizing he didn't have a helmet! He didn't particularly want one, but I insisted if he was going to be riding around Center City, he needed to have one. We went out today to a cool sports shop and had him fitted for it. I was assured by the staff that all helmets that were offered there met Fed. safety standards so I let him pick the one he wanted (within reason.) Although it cost twice what I paid for mine, I'm hoping if he thinks it looks hip, he won't hesitate to wear it. I hope.
