    After 50 miles yesterday in bright sunshine, I now have a very neat and precise sun-tan pattern that closely reflects the vents in my Giro Pneumo. How do you "baldies" deal with this problem. Today, my co-workers have nick-named me Darth Maul. Help!

    Try wearing a skull cap under your helmet.

    I use sunblock of a high spf. It doesn't completely prevent a slight tanning, but thankfully there's some short hair still on my head (it just won't grow, dammit!!!) that prevents it from being too noticeable.

    I'm pale, and shave my head. I use sunscreen. Make sure you get some that won't run into your eyes when you sweat.

    http://www.headsweats.com/ - have quite a selection

    For me the wraps appear better than the sunscreen factor due to sweating, etc...

    As long as you aren't growing little horns like Darth Maul had you should be ok, the helmet will still fit on properly

    Thanks. I have one of the headsweats "shortys". It's just hot. I was wondering if anybody had a different idea. I guess I'll stock up on bandanas.
