Helmets and Mtn Bikes - need knowledge
Although I never wore a helmet when i was younger, I do now enjoy a lesser tolerance to pain and a seemingly longer period to heal. And, when riding moto-x and hare & hound stuff as well as on the street, I never fired up a motorcycle without having a skidlid on.
Therefore, as I am preparing to buy a bike (I just ordered shoes, so I guess the wife cannot complain to much now, what is started is done
), I am considering the options of a helmet. While the rest of me tends to be larger then normal, I fortunately have a somewhat normal sized noggin (unless you ask some friends of mine who would possibly claim it resides in a swollen state).
That in mind, I checked out a few helmets the other day at a local "sporting goods" store that handles mostly high end stuff. It seems as tho a size large will fit alright, but a size U (whatever that means) that adjusts fit better.
What are your recommendations for size, type, brand, etc. I have no idea what I should be looking for here.
