Let's talk helmets.
OK, so I mentioned yesterday that I dropped my helmet and bought a new one. I'm not super anal, but this was a good five foot drop onto the top of the helmet. I have always thought/heard you should replace a helmet every two years or if you have a significant drop.
As Spec pointed out, however, apparently the dude from Arai who was on Jay Leno's "Look how rich I am and how many toys I have" show says different. I know studies have been done, but I can't find any conclusive data. So I throw it to y'all. Does a helmet really need to be replaced after a drop? Does anyone do this other than me? I already got mine, but I might keep it on ice until my old one is older.
