    Hey A2 awesome site. It gave me good new ideas for my lid. I m looking forward to go back to Greece on Xmas to get handy with my airbrush on my specialized xc helmet. I wish i could wear a full face but i reckon its overly heavy and hot for my liking. Any ideas for a lid? I mean any paint ideas for a non full face helmet. By the way , A2 could you make this thread sticky so everyone can check us out when he pops in this forum? (like post your rigs etc etc)

    Some of the new composite helmets are actually pretty light nowadays. If you've got a lot of money, check out the D2 Carbon from Troy Lee Design (homepage of the link I sent you!), friggin awesome helmets and only $410.00. Too rich for my blood!

    BTW, I'll sticky this thread as well, but I don't want to get too carried away making so many threads sticky as it'll get cumbersome. I may "un-stick" it or the others if it doesn't get a lot of posts.

    Ice hockey goalies pay a bundle to get their helmets tricked out. I have no idea if they play where you live? Just a thought.
