Ask the SB: Bike Helmets
Q: I know I should wear a bike helmet, but I look like such a dork. Really, more dorkish than your average gal. Does SB wear a bike helmet? And if so, what kind?
A: Dear Melon Head – sweet, juicy, all sorts of goodness inside that melon, Melon Head. Of course I wear a helmet and so should you. There is nothing spectacular about a head injury. Here at SB, we understand a bit of vanity, but we also put a high premium on preserving life and limb. The truth of the matter is you never know when you might go over your handlebars, so best to be prepared.
We know YOU would never wipe out in front of your sixth grade crush’s house, effectively taking out you and your friend because you had released your handlebars in order to perform a bike-by dance routine to Electric Avenue, but someone else might. There is many a fool out on those roads.
I suspect you’re a casual, tool-around-town type of girl as opposed to a spandex-clad speedster, or we wouldn’t be having this conversation. Given that, I would suggest the rounded skateboarder type helmet as opposed to the aerodynamic racer helmet. Nutcase and Bern both have lots of cute and colorful options.
Embrace the melon head, Melon Head. Do it.
I harangue out of love. Do it.
