Wait someone said that helmets have a shelf life of 5 years right? So wouldn't it make sense to buy a new one every 5 years? Btw I only have 2...

LOL I have 3 Helmets and I was looking at buying a new one soon too..

Helmets do have a shelf life of 4 to 5 years depending on brand etc unless you drop or have a stack then it's done, I would think that if your using your helmet everyday wouldn't it pay to replace your helmet well before the 5 year mark?

Atleast I think so maby because I want a new lid

the little woman: "how many helmets do you need with only one head?"

you: "and how many pairs of shoes do you own?"

problem solved.
