You can make your own - get a push-bike inner tube from Halfords. Cut once across the diameter, slit lengthwise then open flat. You can now slit to appropriate width and cut the length to suit your helmet circumference. Join with puncture repair glue. You will have enough for all your mates too. Of course, makes more sense to get hold of a used and punctured tube if you can...

As above, I just got an old inner tube from my local bike shop. I reinforced the glue join with a few stitches. Great bit of kit which allows the full shrub on top of the head look.

Cheers

Thanks for the advice. Will have to go down that route as the only supplier i found on the net was sold out.

Is there a Decathlon near you? They sell dirt cheap bike inner tubes.

Hi Gordon,
Good advice. Got some free inner tube from Halford. But you did not warn me how dirty they are :)
Anyone need a rubber band? I will see how many I get out of it.
Cheers
Lutz

Well, it is only a bit of dirt. You'll be wanting to get your helmet dirty anyway.
