bikeI have purchased my fair share of irresponsible items, but a fixie bike with no breaks and a wonky seat takes the biscuit. My rather rusty, baby blue vintage bicycle and I have a tempestuous relationship at best. On a good day, she is my most prized possession, transporting me around Stockholm’s sea front in unparalleled fashion. On a bad day, she propels me into my fellow cyclists at every red light, and refuses to climb even the smallest of uphill gradients.

As I have eliminated the option of trading in my fixie for a more practical two wheel option, I am investing in a helmet that is of equally stylish proportion, but substantially safer. I am happy to have hat hair, a glossy forehead and rosy ear lobes if my skull is protected from the concrete. So here are my top five helmet options – which one would you buy? I’m verging towards the bees at present…

    I’ve got one of those fixies, though mine is still in the throes of being transformed into something that is somehow useable. But it’s fun to look at and trawl the web for ‘inspiration’ for my bike renovations. Maybe a helmet would propel the project somewhat. The bees are quite compelling, but I’m taken by the bright turquoise myself.

      Hey KB, thanks for your comment! Good luck fixing up your fixie, you should send in a before and after pic once done – I could do with some tips on how to salvage mine! x
