Nona over at the Bird Wheel has some answers to some basic concerns about bike helmets:
1. Helmet Hair. Sorry, thereâ€™s no science available on earth that has solved this riddle.
2. Looks. You know ugly when you see it and 90% of the time itâ€™s all your bike shop carries.
3.Comfort. Who wants to be safe & miserable? Big head? Little head?
4. Price. Youâ€™re supposed to replace helmets when dropped or used for their intended purpose. When that happens theyâ€™re a bargain at any price but when you start going through a new helmet every year or every other year as recommended, itâ€™s a drain.
