Hey, I just bought a 661 Full Bravo from AEbikes, and I was just wondering how many other people prefer a full face helmet.

Not yet but I do intend to. I just more expenses than I can count and full faced cost quite a bit if you want a good one.

I only wear my full face helmet when I am racing. I find that my full face helmet gets way to hot even though it has many vents. Since there is no way to shuttle to the top of the trails I have to ride up. Back in the hills it gets hot in a full face helmet. I do have a few friends that always wear their ff helmets with out any prob.

Those are only necessary for downhills right?
It's just too much for me to take.

Not at all. If you are doing anything technical with a little speed it is a good idea. Some of the single track's I go on require safety features that go behond a simple helmet and gloves.

one of the main reasons I bought a FF was because I hate the strap that goes under a normal helmet. I'm not sure if this one has that, but I know that at least if it does it doesn't have to be as tight.
