    Re: helmets

    I have an older Tec helmet. Pretty decent stuff. light(ish), doesn't look too bad, doesn't cost too much and comfy (available right down to XS). Haven't really tested it out (like in a crash) but my philosophy on helmets has always been to wear one but not use it.

    Melbourne Bicycle Centre would be the cheapest place to get 'em I believe.

    Good luck

    No. I do not ride for fashion and I do not care if your bicycle is prettier than mine.

    Re: helmets

    Last time i bought a helmet i had to get the top-of-the-line (Giro Atmos) because it was the only one that fitted. Sucks to have a big head i guess. It was an excellent helmet though.

    Bell Furio, looks just like the more expensive ones, heaps of vents, light as, very adjustable I now have 2. One bought here for about 160 and bought the second in the US for 70.
