when i race my head gets red hot and i carry a bottle of water to squirt my head and face. this really helps. does anyone else do this or have a better tip.
Hair doesn't make much a difference. Mine is 5-6 inches and very curly/bulky.kretzel said:How long is your hair? I keep mine SHORT (like half an inch long on top, less on the sides) during racing season. Makes a big difference, you'd be surprised how much insulation you get from having your hair just an inch long.
Added bonues: no combing in the morning. Minimal helmet head. I can cut it myself & spend the savings on bike parts & races.
careful with that one, water expands when it freezes, don't wanna wreck a perfectly good helmetjimonthecake said:ice cubes in the helmet holes.. i will try but i bet they fall out when i see my first anything to get some air off of.
i bet you could somehow freeze water into the holes like making popsicles. - that would make me laugh if i saw this done.
Maybe you could solve this with old school mesh helmet covers....in fluro pink or yellow to be truely retro hehejimonthecake said:ice cubes in the helmet holes.. i will try but i bet they fall out when i see my first anything to get some air off of.
