    Should I wear a helmet when riding my brakeless fixie?

    HA HA GOTCHA! Ok, well, not really interested in starting another one of those threads, but hey, I know sometimes us fixie riders want some cool covers to put over our BMX helmets eh?

    Check these out so what do you guys say? To hip? To lame? Wrong forum?

    I dunno, seems like a funny novelty but don't think I would ever slide one of those over my helmet, maybe it would sway some of you in the no helmet crowd over to the helmeted side of life? Prolly not, but what do you think?

    My guess is they would be a bit warm... although they cost about the same as a rain cover. They might be good for wet, winter commuting- maybe if they could boost the wattage of their lights?

    If I wore a helmet, I would definitely sport the ladybug jawn.

    I used to work at a nonprofit teaching kids to fix bikes. We would go out for group rides and force kids to wear helmets, which they hated. We had a bunch of bmx helmets, and the kids would always cover them with a stretchy scully cap, making them look like they had humongous afros.

    These are great! The frog rocks. Perfect for the next group ride. Good thing I still have Christmas shopping to do. The brain one probably is trying to show your synapses firing as you ride.
