    Wanted: cool helmet

    Hey there - I'm in the market for a new helmet, and need some help tracking down what I'm looking for.

    Of course it should be comfortable, lightweight, safe, etc, etc, etc.

    But as vain as I may be, I really want something *cool*. Something *stylish*. Something that will turn heads. (Well, turn heads of other cyclists)

    Does such a helmet exist? Am I a fool to expect helmets to actually look sexy?

    Thanks.

    Mtn or Road?

    Mtn: No clue, havent looked at a mtn helmet for the last 2 years.

    Road: I love the look of the Limar F107, The Briko twinner is unique, im sure it works great, but i find the look very odd. Then theres the very popular Giro pneumo (sp?).

    Get whatever fits you best, a helmet to big is useless, as is one to small.
