    It was a bargain-basement pointy hat, not one of those £180 jobs.

    It didn't make me go any quicker, but I liked it because there was less wind noise. It sort of tricked me into thinking it was less windy than it really was.

    My headwear today was a CC buff.

    Thats still.. what..? £60 for a cheap aero helmet. Stopping the wind noise on time trials is a definate advantage imo, though I've never done it myself. :smile::biggrin:

    There must be a campaign somewhere for compulsory Buffs.
