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)

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.

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

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.
