    You had to have had at least an inkling that it was gonna look like a big soup bowl on top of your head...how could you look at that pic and not know? If you only wear it at night, then no one will notice...

    i may wait for the aero helmet that specialized came up with. Hopefully it looks like i thought the attack would look.
    You mean these...


    ...there's a local guy that got a trial one from specialized, its actually the pharma/quickstep team helmet, I think it might be a little different. I think the back looks funny on them.

    Of course, this is coming from the guy that now has a soup bowl for a helmet.

    Yeah, I know, but I look bad in all helmets. I figured this one would look more "commuter-ish" for riding to work and help keep the head warmer in the winter months. I also wanted something a bit more toned down since my current aeon is a bit 80's inspired when it comes to color...


    edit: ugh, thats a horrible picture of me. That was 70 miles into a century on a 105+ degree day...you can see the salt buildup in my hair. I also needed to shave.

    MET's fit, & look best on my huge noggin.
    I recently picked up Specialized Prosero II, & I like it, the vents are nice when its hot out.
    Its a bit mushroomy, but far less than the Giros.
    Thought about the S-Works but didn't bite.

    It's the Ride The Lightning jersey from TwinSix...They've been having a ton of sales the last couple of months and I stocked up. It shows out of stock on their website, but you might be able to find it competitive cyclist or other online retailers. I also think Voler makes some of their stuff, and have heard that you can find cheap twinsix stuff on the voler site as well.

    I like the Specialized Prevail (think thats the one) helmets too, but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Perhaps one day. The cool thing about Specialized helmets is I can scratch off the "iz" and it'll say Special ed, haha. I'm a dork.

    I do remember being out on a ride and stopped at a light. A car pulls up and the driver asked me if I was wearing a modified motorcycle helmet... and here I thought I was going to be asked about the pink Ridley.

    But I actually like mine and have been using it since I got it a couple months back. I still have an Atmos and a Catlike Whisper Plus but still continue to choose the Giro AA Shield.

    Lol.

    That reminds me of a Brooklyn, NY based bicycle shop called SPCarbon. They sell open mold frames, wheels, etc. painted with their "SP" logos for an overpriced, ridiculous amount of $$$. It looks like they took the first two letters, "SP" from Specialized to come up with their logo.

    I wore the air attack to work today...although it did not make me faster, (ha!) from a distance its not so bad while wearing sunglasses (I go by some mirrored/windowed buildings and I checked myself out. Looking good!) I have to agree with KantoBoy, the power ranger is an accurate representation. Perhaps I should pick up a morph suit...I'd have my halloween costume all taken care of.
