Looking for a Chicago Blackhawks cycling helmet- would that be a custom job?

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

As a native of Downers Grove IL, I've often wondered if pro sports teams make logoed bike helmets. The goalie helmets are cool, wonder if somebody could do a sports team.

Philly fans need not reply!

I have always wanted a Cubs jersey. Settled for a white pinstriped Old Style Primal jersey. I hardly wear anything else!

Being a Chicago native here, you can get a white or black helmet, preferably white, and take it to get airbrushed. I have a friend who did that years ago and it turned out pretty damn good. As for a Cubs cycling jersey, last year at the Crit Championships in Downer's Grove, Voler was there and had Chicago Cubs cycling jersey's. Price, how does $30 sound? I bought a few jerseys there last year, but they didn't have size "FATA$$" for the Cubs jersey.

If anyone comes across a Cubs cycling jersey, make sure you let me know. I want one for sure.

The Pronger bashing just makes me laugh, actually. Good luck to the Hawks - they are going back to the basement this year.

I'd go to www.blackhawksstore.com and get stickers/decals to put on your helmet. I have a white hockey helmet and got stickers to put on the there.

And no, vkalia, the blackhawks will be there or near there again next year. The team will be different, but the culture has changed.

No chance. We're back.

It must be hard to lose in the Cup finals again. What is that, six times since 1975? How sad.

For what it's worth, the Hawks cycling helmet is a bit much. And I love the Hawks.

Don't get me wrong, The Prong is a first ballot HOF-er and every team he goes to gets better, but c'mon- stealing pucks? His kid is more mature than that....
