    Sweet

    Make sure to get silver ones. They're at least 5% faster,
    Back of the camera, back of the pack.

    Maybe if it's glossy. But silver is shiny-er. So it's definitely faster. If it was me, I'd go for a time trial helmet with spikes. That would be the fastest of all.

    Just go to Home depot, get some of these:



    drive them through the helmet from the inside and ride on.

    gentlemen...shoudn't we offer some legitimate advice before this young man does something foolish with his lid.
    Cause foreal bro...that's really not a good idea. Two reasons...Metzger seldomly ever crashes (unlike most of us). And second because you would have to drill your helmet to put spikes like that on it which SERIOUSLY compromises the structural integrity of your lid. Please don't.

    p.s. I think it was one of the Crusty's... from the Perth Australia Tour.

    a nice safe version of a spike, easily glued to any helmet.

    every thread needs an uploaded image of one kind or another.

    ya, my water cooler is pretty slow right now....shoudl i buy wheels for it before the chrome, or does it just hover?


    btw, it goes silver is fast, green is agility, yellow is control, red is for hucking, and blue is for stability

    buy one of each for your lid, and you will be the fastest guy in the world

    If your insistent on putting something on your lid why not put one of those bristle mohawks? I've seen them in a video and they looked cool. Plus they are quite harmless and your bike park might even give you a discount on lift tickets for cleaning some spider webs off tree branches as your flying down the trail
