i do wear one now, because it's new and it's silver and pink, just like my bike.
Sounds great dag.
Rog I must confess not to wearing a crash hat myself sometimes. But the incident with my friend quite affected me. Regarding head stripes....! No worries, the areas of light and shade on your head are constantly moving. And you can always wear a thin cotton cap or such like underneath if necessary.
Its national bike week here in England. Just off now....
