the one i bought was used by someone on jelly belly, maybe they left some fast in it that i can absorb.

ok, whoever it was who sent the helmet off to me put in like 6 bags of sport beans-- so so awez. the helmet is in beautiful condition too, with original bag.

my lack of riding and relative obesity is sapping my enthusiasm. and the shitty depresso weather weve had this year. if i wanted this shit all winter, i could live in like, syracuse.

one year passes...

I have moved on to a Giro Ionnis. That Selev I mentioned upthread looked cool but was poor quality imho. This Giro is really nice. Expensive at full price, try to grab a deal if you can.

the giro atmos my friend gave me for xmas fits fine w/o a cycling cap underneath, but when i wear a cap, it flys off the back of my head when i'm going fast. pretty lame.

also saw vids of the giro d'italia and some guys had helmets w/venting that was sideways across head instead of back. it looked hella weird

maybe the new Orbea Odin helmets that Euskaltel is racing. They look like klingon foreheads.

That's EXACTLY what I thought about them! haha!

I think it is time for a new helmet. Giro has been good to me, I'd like to try a bontrager oracle, as worn by leopard trek. It seems very open.

that new giro might be an option?

i like the bell volt, would recommend.

I think I've lost my helmet - I've got to call an off licence3 today as it's the only place I could have left it, otherwise I'm back in the market. But I'll almost certainly get the same as before because after half an hour of trying on photos and looking in the mirror it was the only one that was both comfortable and looked okay (a Met Ultimalite).

I have a giro monza, which appears to be the plain vanilla ice cream of helmets. There were loads of them on the last fnrttc. Pretty comfy and light enough though.

Found mine - left it in the offie. Phew!

Mark C, Tuesday, 24 May 2011 15:01 (twelve years ago) link

jaxon what about

Has to be an american brand to fit my capacious bonce/hair combo.

Ya this is it

And, nah. I'm not in the market for a helmet, I just don't wear a cap underneath.

jaxon, Tuesday, 24 May 2011 16:08 (twelve years ago) link

Looks pretty good
