    New question here. Matching helmet color to bike

    Now let's be honest when shopping for a new helmet do you take your bike's color into consideration?
    I was shopping for a new one yesterday and realized I was doing that without even thinking.

    It is in the back of my mind. If I am equally liking two helmets as my final choices, then I will pick the one that matches better.

    I try not to pick colors that do not work together, but if I can't match, I contrast.

    I have multiple bikes in different colors, and my shoes and backpack already do not match, so getting the helmet to color-coordinate with anything is a lost cause.

    My most recent two helmet purchases were silver-grey and dark-grey respectively. Those colors pretty much go with anything.

    I try to make it match my Camelbak. I will eventully switch bikes, but my camelbak is a constant.

    Black Flux helmet, to match my red and black camelbak. Style is everything!

    lets say your bike is bright blue, you match your helmet, now you have this standout bright blue bowl on your head, and to top it off, you have red hair. Matching your bike and helmet is flat out wierd to me. I go for subtle colors.

    Match the helmet to the bike? I thought it was the other way around!

    If you're dropping used car kind of money on a bike you may as well look good riding it !

    I don't worry too much about it as this number is a solid choice with any ensemble.

    No. Never even thought about. I did just buy the jersey that matches my Full Face helmet though.

    I dont get why sone people felt guilty or think its a bad thing to match the color. If matching colors is your thing go for it by all means

    Well, you got me now. I matched my clothes to the bike (bike is black/white, yea I know, very original), then my Camelback and shoes to my clothes, and then helmet to my clothes.

    It is a vicious circle now, because if I want to buy new bike now I need to match it to the clothes. So I am kinda stuck in the black black/white combo.
