|Vegan Leather Brooks Saddle on a Motobecane|
Looking a little further, I discovered that Brooks was a pioneer in the field of vegan leather way back in the 70's with its saddles. Some of us, not knowing any better, castigated them as "PLASTIC."
As it turned out, Brooks was showing us the way.
On a more serious note, the new helmet does have one interesting feature - a hole intended to allow it to be locked directly to the bike via a U Lock. This is a feature sadly missing in mainstream helmets.
