    um, i dont think that normal beenies having more friction is that big of a disadvantage, i always find normal beenies a little painful due to the little knot where all the seems connect at the top. but if u wana reduce friction maybe u can stitch on a lil sheet of polyester from clothes u dont wear nemore.

    I've been using a beanie with a kneepad on the inside, but if you're concerned about friction you could easily sow/tape the pad on the outside which would reduce friction.

    The pads I got on sale for like $3 when I realized they were to small for my knees I figured I'd just make a headspin beanie with them, the beinie I already had, although I saw helmets on sale during christmas time for $10 (all at big 5 where you go for cheapo sporting goods).

    my friend, a bboy from Bulgaria, tought me not too long ago how to make a headspin beanie, so this is what he told me to do

    1. take ur hat
    2. get a sponge
    3. knit the sponge to the inside of the hat
    4. (now i dont really know how to explain this..) When u buy mandarines in a wooden box, the cover is usually made of some sort of orange net. Take that net and knit it to the outside of the hat

    uh i tried to find a picture of the net im talkin about, but i cant seem to find any >< if anyone knows what im talkin about and can explain better, please do


    peace

    1 word: deodorant

    1 word: deodorant.........this works great, just rub some dry deodorant on the top and you will spin great

    You guys lack creativity. Try stiching polythene cover on to your beanie, and inside you stitch something like sponge to make it cosy. I have never tried it but i am gonna. I cant afford a helmet.

    you explained it fine man . . its sort of like the same thing you see when they are doing construction on a big building and there is the netting all along the scaffold. . if you live in the city (manhattan) or any big city you'll see this all the time . . just rip a piece off and bounce . . that'll work great

    This is what I do : take one side of a newspaper, fold it up so it'll cover about 2/3rds or 3/4ths of the center of your head, and then stuff it inside your beanie. I have a traditional adidas Chelsea beanie, nothing special for spinning, but the newspaper reduces the pain and gives you lesser friction.

    i use the material from a oldschool deckchair this is better for spinnig and it lasts longer,i fold the material in half to give me 2 layers then i stitch the stuff on my hat leaving a pouch at the front of the hat then i stitch sum velcro on the front then i have a pocket an velcro to hold my mouse mat in(not the thin hard ones)...

    and when the pad smells or it goes out of shape or it gets to soft you have a pouch to put a new one in i also use a bit of elastic to hold the hat on..

    hope that helps..oh you can find the muti colour stuff if you look but its the material off tghe swiftrock hats that you want which is black and tough
