I had an idea for a different post today, but I just don’t have the time to write it. I also have quite a few emails from readers that I haven’t been able to read and respond to yet. This is turning out to be a busy week during a consistently busy time of year, so please bear with me. Before I get on with this post though, I want throw out a couple of links. Ron at Cozy Beehive posted recently about a frame design video from Georgena Terry; pretty interesting stuff. Also, I noticed more bike related content on Cool Hunting in the past few days. Late last week, they pointed out six bike baskets and five “urban commuter” helmets. Some of the baskets are pretty nice, but to be honest, I am not so sure about the helmets. I understand that many urban commuters do not want sleek, race inspired helmet designs. Still, to me, these designs look like the minimalist helmets that you see Harley guys wearing when they are forced to do so by state helmet laws. I am not saying that there is anything wrong with that, but it seems like commuter oriented bicycle helmets should have a different aesthetic. I know that there some nice commuter oriented helmet designs out there, but these five just don’t do it for me.
