Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Have have a fairly large noggin, but the Giro Prolight didn't fit me properly. I found that MET fit great, & my newest Specialized Prospero II fits nice too. Going to put my spesh away since its getting cold. I'll have to try out a UVEX too.
That's a sharp looking lid!

That would look even better with yellow bartape and a yellow saddle!

Giro doesn't fit me all that perfect, I've had a couple.

Spesh Prevail (lightest of my bunch) and Prospero are a good fit, I have both. But they're more fugly than the typical fugly helmet, and for some reason the closure/tightening loosens up on occasion.

Have been on Rudy Project lately, and that fits my bulbous noggin well...but the closure dial leaves a little to be desired.

So I'll try this Uvex, which is "so far, so good" and perhaps a tad less fugly given less mass on the back end...and it has a non-flashy non-red alternative to pure black color scheme...

I needed a shorter crank arm for my incredibly bad knee so I bought this, 2.5mm shorter.

Agreed...would match my shoes perfectly.

Weird sizing though, M-XL, I'd be confused as hell if the cm's weren't listed.

That's what I wear. Good choice. I also have R1s, but one of its carbon fiber buckles broke after 3 rides. The R3's metal buckles are sturdier.

I'm liking the color, too. I wear a Kask that looks very similar (black + sky blue). One think I like about it -- maybe yours has it, too (I can't see the back) -- is its thumbwheel which allows you to adjust how snugly it fits.

Garmin Forerunner 110 w/ HRM. I know, this is a runner's watch, but it will record rides and HR just fine even if it has limited functionality on the bike itself. And I actually bought it so my wife can use it as well. I have my trusty Cateye Astrale 8 for immediate bike feedback. And I don't need maps.

If I like it, maybe I'll spring for a bike specific Garmin.

I think that this counts as "cycling related" in the 41.
