    Why can't I find a TT helmet in the USA

    Am I just not looking in the right places? BF and others seem to rate them high in terms of shaving off wind drag, but these are curiously precious items stateside. Forget the LBS. Even e-bay is low on stock.

    Wassup wi dat??

    Where exactly are you looking? A 5 min search of a few of the standard webshops gives the following in the US.

    And if you want to go outside the box in the UK (shipping is only $10).

    Thanks for the links. Maybe a premature b*tch on my part. Was hoping to find one locally to try on for size. Someone also suggested looking at triathlon gear shops. Still difficult to find much beyond L.Garneau, Limar and Giro.

    I know of several in stock in shops around town here.... but it's not USA...

    There's one shop in town that I walk by often that's got a really pretty Giro aero helmet right in the front window (next to two carbon Bontrager TT bar sets!) that just teases me every time I walk by.

    the LG rocket is the best option out but not the most fashionable.
