It's not often we post a pictures-only thread, but when it comes to the subject of what covers yer cranium, sometimes style (or lack thereof) speaks for itself. I asked the bikeshed crew what lids they collected, owned or lusted after, and after a host of gags about men's private parts I got the guys to send me some pics from their personal collections... Tim turned about to be a proper helmet aficionado (no sniggering at the back ), collecting lids for the the shelves of the Spirit Shed in Kent, but Ian, Barry and Hugo were a close match and Martin even had a tale or two about the theft of his Troy Lee helmet leading to the conviction of a bike thief and drug dealer... so there you go - Top that. Where were we - oh yes... Nice pics of old school skid lids:

Proper retro metalflake... complimented nicely by those white grips...

This UMC branded lid sports a Bubble flipper... Awesome idea. (Get yours from Adam)

Horses or horsepower? I'm not quite sure...
