She Traveled Far for a Nutcase (Bike Helmet)

Well, actually, my Cousin Angie traveled two hours up the road from Phoenix with her family to spend Thanksgiving Day with Bob and I and the purchase of her new Nutcase bike helmet was largely a matter of convenience.

Angie and her husband Doug are interested in incorporating bicycling into their transportation options.  With a small child and a new "old" house they've recently had renovated they want good bikes at good prices and have been looking at Craig's List.  Two weeks ago, Angie sent me some texts asking for my thoughts about some bikes she had been looking at.  She soon settled on an Electra Townie equipped with fenders and a chainguard.  She's been to a local bike shop for a fitting, a lock and panniers and already pedaled to a recent dental appointment.

Angie likes the idea of looking fashionable when she arrives at her destinations by bicycle but prioritizes safety because she has the needs of a little girl to consider.  While I only wear my helmet about half the time, Phoenix is a very car-centric city and possible not the place for a novice cyclist to to unnecessary risks.  Angie had already had a chance to inspect my Nutcase helmet and decided it was a perfect balance of cranium protection and style.  With no luck finding a Nutcase in Phoenix, she contacted Rainbow's End boutique here in Flagstaff who reported that, indeed, a shipment was on its way!  Immediately after Angie arrived on Wednesday evening we rushed down to Rainbow's End where Angie purchased the Hula Lounge helmet in a S/M.

You probably won't be surprised to read that with a cute new bike and a cute new helmet, Angie also wants the perfect bike basket and a stylish pannier or saddlebag for carrying around her essentials.  I don't know if I should feel guilty for creating a monster or proud. 

Happy Thanksgiving from the SRAB family!

Angie looks pretty happy in her new nutcase! Isn't it fun when even buying a helmet is exciting? Looks as though everyone had a great time! :))

Mmmm . . . Nutcase. Still waiting for them to come out with new designs since the current ones just aren't quite me. LOVE the ingenuity, though!

I requested a Nutcase for Christmas! Can't wait to try it out! :)

Great choice of design on the Nutcase! Like Cherilyn, I'm waiting for one that speaks to me to purchase, but one of these days...
