Bicycle Helmet Phone A Bad Call
A helmet with a mobile phone built in. While it is true that if you must talk on your phone while riding (you don't), that doing so hands-free is better than taking a hand off your bike, cycling -- at least in a heavily trafficked urban setting -- and talking on the phone is still a bad idea. All of your senses must be alert while riding in the city, and talking on the phone or listening to music while pedaling will increase your chances of getting into an accident. Here's an idea: if you need to make a call get off your bike.
