    drill a lot of holes in, makes it lighter, and the air will go through it better, colour is irelevant for speed (but red is the fastest)

    Red is the fastest color for most anything. Frames, clothing, helmets etc. Orange is a close second and about on par with British Racing Green. Forget anything blue.

    Pink with purple polka dots. But the more outlandish you are the more you have to back it up.

    Buckets, easily available in different colors and when you crash you have a place to carry your parts in on the hike down. A seat to wrench from, a squirrel trap for food if lost and a toilet if needed (just wash before wearing again)

    Make sure to have the helmet tightly strapped to your head and use an extra long drill bit...

    Dammit! I was just gonna say that.

    Instead may I suggest a helmet painted to look like hair blowing in the wind cuz you're going so freakin fast!

    Color doesn't matter as long as you run an old scool type of lycra cover. Every one knows tha lycra makes every thing faster!

    Creaking sound is from the sunburned ears!
    Use sunblock next time!

    White is the only option for fast because it's the lightest color. No pigments or dyes to weigh down your helmet.

    Opacity is for chumps; clear is where it's at.
    Slow is cool too, right?

    actually, clear coat for carbon helmets.

    Because carbon is lightest.
