Every avid cyclist should know how to fix his bike; learn the basics in this video series.
You Will Need
- A measuring tape
- A bicycle helmet
- Foam pads
Use a measuring tape to measure your head’s circumference. This will determine the correct helmet size.
Adjust foam pads
Use the foam pads to make sure the helmet sits level on your head. Generally helmets come with two sizes of foam pads.
Adjust the straps
Adjust the side straps to sit snugly under your ears with no slack. The chin strap should be buckled tightly under your chin.
Open your mouth
Open your mouth without moving your head. The helmet should pull down with your jaw movement.
Twist the helmet
Twist the helmet from side to side. The skin on your forehead should move with the helmet. If not, it’s too loose and needs tightening.
