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

Jan Ullrich's Helmet

Does anyone know what kind of helmet Jan Ullrich and T-Mobile wear? I got the free poster of him from my LBS and was really admiring his helmet.

Thanks

Is the helmet small or does Jan have a big head?

Don't answer that.

Maybe it's just the picture?

If you measure the circumferance of your head (where the helmet usually sits) the seller can tell you whether it'll fit. Then backfill the thing with pads.

Hope this helps!

I actually don't want the T-Mobile helmet itself. I just liked the style. I'd rather have the Phonak one, it looks awesome.
