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)

What helmets do you wear?!

i have a black giro something and a flat black bern baker with the winter insert.

in related news, a co-worker bought a carbon catlike whisper2 last week and left the box on his trunk when he drove away. car-free types will say 'serves him right for being a cager' or whatever but forreals that must suck.

I'll be needing a new helmet for summer time. I sweat in this thing in the "winter" temps down here.

I have a Specialized Echelon in reflective white/silver. All their road helmets look the same.

It's actually just the straps(down the center) and some nice aesthetically cut long reflective stickers in the back. I wish the entire thing was reflective I guess. I might attempt a photo.

No one wears Catlike Whisper Plus? At $250+ I would expect not, though they are pretty damn awesome. I just got one as a gift & love it.

probably a common choice. Good'n cheap. It looks even dorkier when it's actually on your head, but I got it on sale. I don't wear it for looks.

Giro Prolight. Looking to trade in for the red or all black. I am very picky about color.

Bell Solar. It was $35. I'm not spending more than that on a helmet unless it's feline.

True, not as natural looking as the other helmets shown.

It is true, it's a funny looking helmet (that apparently appeals to the elderly). But, in a world of awful looking helmets, it's not too bad at all. Lazer is also pretty awesome.
