Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Cycling Hats

Lets see or hear of you cycling caps

Currently my collection includes a Bontrager Wheelworks, and an old school TVM Rango hat from the 80's

i used to have a sweet cap that was printed up from a race we had in columbus in the spring, but now i have the mapei (that is in my silly avatar icon thing) and a black gerikmade hat with a neon pink bill. it's the ultrajam.

i think that i'm going to try to make myself a hat pretty soon here. i think i can figure out the pattern for a standard four panel. if anyone happens to have one, though, let me know.

I rock any one of 3 different red sox hats, with a fleece ear band over it in the fall/winter, or a cheap acrylic hat over the sox hat when its wicked cold.

Man, even without a hat, most of the time all I have to the bar is just raise two fingers

I just picked up a cheap bianchi hat last week. It's already getting nice and dirty...

When I was younger I was way into collecting cycling hats. My favorites would be an old 7-Eleven, Motorola, and a Team Z. I also like my Jagermeister one since it use to be my drink of choice. Prior to my stomach revolting against it.

I have taken (since i ride with a helmet) to stuffing my hats into my back pocket on my jeans and letting them flap about. They've not come out yet after several months and it allows me to exercise the fashion of a cycling hat while actually wearing a helmet.

That said I have a local shop hat and a campy hat, although the campy hat has significantly less irony now that i'm not running a bike with absolutely no campy stuff on it.

I have a blue Campy hat. And yes I have at least one Campy part.

Anyone know where you can get hats that aren't the standard Campy, Columbus, Colnago, Tour de France '05?

A lot of local shops in this town have hats that you can get, maybe check shops around you?
