Hello Guys,

I want to do something special to my Giro Atmos !
But I can't photoshop :? Could somebody help me ?
I want to make it a very special helmet, with my name a couple of times on it (Curfs = my sir name), I also want somewhere the WeightWeenie logo on it !

Colors ?

Maybe something like Paolo:

Or something with my new team colors ? (bad pic)

Please help me guys :) it would be awesome !
Do you guys know a website of someone who can do this ? In belgium, Netherlands ?

Try looking for motorbike helmet specialists in Belgium or the Netherlands, it's quite popular to get helmets customised.

Wow, so you won the Italian Nationals, the Worlds and the Olympics!?!?!?!?

If not, then just stay with the team colors...

The 2007 Atmos in blue black would go nicely with your team strip.

There's nothing wrong with idolizing someone or aspiring to be the world champion even...

Many weekend riders come decked out in full pro team kits too. The only time that's inappropriate is if you're racing in a pro race. (i.e showing up to TDF in your own Maillot Jaune) :lol:

It's always funny to ride after some pro-look-a-likes and say: 'wow, I can follow Tom Boonen' or something like that. Their faces are :D

For recreational riders, sure. For people racing themselves, wearing rainbow stripes that they you not earned is a big nono. The rule of thumb goes something like this: If you are good enough to be mistaken for a pro, then you are not allowed to wear pro team kit.

Belly you can also use stickers, my teammate got it and I didn't even noticed it before he told it.
best basic background would be a white or black atmos.

Good luck with customizing it, I would like to do the same. If you weren't attatched to your atmos, I think specialized makes custom helmets for teams if you wanted to try that?

Does painting the helmet do something with relyability in a crash?
Just wondering... :idea:
