    Fixie Helmets

    In the interest of keeping my dome in one piece. What are some solid helmets for fixed gear riders?

    I took a fixie-piss this morning, put on my fixie boxers and went triple rush brakeless to eat my fixie-cereal. I live my life one fixie at a time.

    I use a Macon with a brentwood liner but i just saw one of these....might be fun if the visibility isn't compromised



    though I expect that this is popular with the safety minded bike walkers

    I know someone that uses the second one. She's a sixty year old frumpy lady.

    Honestly, if Kangol made one of these in rabbit fur I'd totally rock it.

    I use a Giro Atmos which has a Ti finish, it's comfy and has plenty of vents. Kask helmets are very comfortable too.

    I like mine too, sucks when I can't find what I'm looking for. Feel free to provide helpful links to similar threads about good helmets for riding fixed gear bikes.

    All helmets do exactly the same thing, and the one that is right for you will be a matter of comfort, looks, and price. Go ****ing shop.

    Sorry for assuming people might prefer different equipment for different types of biking.

    Apparently the word fixie isn't cool around these parts. To everyone mocking me, suck my fixie!
