I was thinking about my Specialized S3 only this morning.
Excellent helmet, light, cool, good fit, secure. All the things you want from a helmet.
Except now that I've lost all
my hair, it's like wearing a plastic strap round bare skin. The plastic is sharp and hard and the inside top of the helmet is hard, rough and unforgiving. The mere thought of wearing it now fills me with dread.
Yes. I've fitted the pads, and fitted extra pads.
I know, wear a hat underneath!
What an brilliant idea!
Too hot, looks stupid.
I know, buy another helmet!
Try them out in the shops!
What I want from a helmet ............ if I wanted a helmet again ............ would be a soft-on-the-inside one.
The thing is, I've spent just most of my cycling life before helmets even came on the scene. It was as late as 2005 before I used one, and less than ten years later, I've stopped using one. Do I miss them?
Do I 'eckers like!
