Dapper and crew,

I have a Cinelli hairnet that i have in my collection. In case there is ever a classic ride, I will wear it but until then, I opt for the safety features of the new helmets. I would much rather survive a nasty knock on the noggin rather than relearn the alphabet! With the new designs, they now protect the base of the back of the skull. This is the area involved for serious head injuries which I have seen most commonly arrive in the ER in Hershey when I was in nursing clinicals.
