Does anyone have a site that they would recomend for large helmets? I wear a size 7 7/8 hat.
Yes! Great question - my napper is on the large size and my Specialized helmet looks way too small for me...I'd be interested in a budget priced, widely available alternative...

I wear a Bell Adrenaline; it's a one-size-fits-"all" helmet, but it fits my massive head just fine. It's a mass market helmet you can find at any decent sporting goods store.
I also enjoy the benefits of a 7-7/8 hat size. A few years ago I bought a Bell Sweep ('07), and I love it. I've had probably 5 or 6 Bell and Giro helmets in my time, dating back to the original Bell Biker, and this one is the best fitting helmet I've ever had. It's like a glove for my head. It's still available, and it's reasonably priced. In fact, Performance still has some '08s in stock for about 80 bucks:

Finally a thread I can speak too, 77/8? Hmmm, a bit small, but if it is one one God gave you I guess it will have to do. 8 1/4 here, and a Bell Triton is the only helmet that will fit me. I think it will adjust down small enough for you little headed fellas though. ;)
