    Idk man, take that mask off the top one and its cool but from what I see they both look pretty gay.

    I jumped more shit than evil kenevil on my BMX as a kid and I'm not sure if they even made bicycle helmets at that time. I'd have never worn the shit if they did.

    Bicycle helmets....parents being overprotective of their kids. Why not just put them in a fucking bubble? Sometimes less is more.

    Or get them a motorcycle helmet. I had lots of crashes on my bike when I was a kid but no way I would have worn one of those creepy looking bicycle helmets. Look what happened to Lance Armstrong. He wore one and got cancer of his balls. Coincidence? I think not.

    I never wear a helmet while bicycling. Of course, I never wore gloves until I took a spill and lacerated both palms in the fall. I guess I'll have to crack my skull before putting on a helmet. If I never wore one back in the 70's on my sleek Gitanne 10-speed hauling ass on long rides, I damn sure ain't wearing one on my newsboy special poking around the shady neighborhood back streets.

    I never wore one either; hell, I'm not sure they were even available in the 70s. But one morning I'll never forget, my cousin hit a pothole on his bike while riding to school, fell and hit his head on a parked car. He was DOA at the hospital....13 years old. My son always wore a helmet.

    When I was at LSU one day I was walking up that hill on the street that runs between where the McDonald's used to be on E. State St. and Chimes St. I saw a guy come flying down the hill on his 10 speed wearing one of those sissy helmets. He looked like a friend of mine and even though I knew my friend wouldn't be caught dead wearing a bicycle helmet I yelled my friends name. The guy turned around to look at me and had a horrific crash. It turned out to be some guy I didn't even know. He was all scraped up but he hadn't hit his head so the helmet didn't help him.

    Had a similar experience which is why I started wearing a helmet skiing when my kids were old enough to start and set the example. I also wear one on my mountain bike and it has come in handy (I live where there are a lot of rocks). Same company that made my hockey helmet as a kid.

    The really committed '70's riders wore these little padded caps.
