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?!

Riding with a black Giro Prolight. It's pricey and ugly but it is really light.

Specialized Echelon. Only bummed because I'd like to put a visor on it sometimes and it isn't configured for it. Might try some Krazy Glue sometime...

I have an O2 as well, in this colorway:



Everyone I know thinks it's ridiculous that I spent $100 on a helmet, little do they know that's about in the middle of the price spectrum...

Ive been riding with a Cratoni Bullet for about 6-8 months and I really like it. I have a tiny head and it took me forever to find something comfortable, so check em out if u got dinosaur brain sized headcase.

I am liking the Protec. Saw someone wearing a gloss black one today and it looked pretty cool

Giro Flak. It's alright. Too round, not orthoprogenic enough for my skull.

I use a black Lazer O2 like many others here (got it on sale from Speedgoat for $48) or a Rudy Sterling (that I recently got during their clearance for $56). Both are awesome helmets.

I've got a Pro-tec Classic skate with a little bit of the foam scraped out in the back - even though it's an XL I still couldn't squeeze it on my giant dready melon. I want to pick up a Bern Watts XXL but need to check one out in person to see if it will fit. If not, I'll grab a Macon XXXL.

I need to go helmet shopping. I've been wearing a too-small Bell Solar that I found in the basement of the place I'm renting at school. The Catlike Whisper is a very attractive helmet, but I'm pretty sure it's a total waste of money for me. I'm also looking at Lazer and Giro helmets.

no dreads here but I had to get the XL Pro-tec. I never thought my head was that large, but who knows ... I think the pro-tecs run small.

Funny thing, I saw some at marshalls the other day for cheap (forgot the price on the sticker, but considerably less than MSRP; $25 maybe..).... possibly one near you (or a tj max equivalent; they're the same store) for them. I passed as they were too big for me...

If you happen to catch a bee in your helmet and you're allergic to them, bug screens would be nice. A friend of mine is allergic to bees and she wish had a bug screen in her helmet after what happened...

I picked up a Bern Brentwood on EBay a while back. I've always had issue with traditional helmets. They feel like I'm wearing a yamaka on my head. The Bern fits really well, and actually feels like it would protect. I wear an XL. Plus I got the ear flap inserts so it's super warm even when the temps were in the teens.
