Really? Is that the gist of your dilemma?

I try to be nice here and help people out but this is weak. Man up. Go to a local store size it up and get a lid to protect whats left of your melon.
Dude, you should get off your sanctimonious high horse and think about what you're saying. Why is it my responsibility to support my LBS? It's a free market system. If the LBS charges 2x the price for similar helmets on-line, it'd be financial irresponsible to not buy online. Yes, they are in the business of making money, but I am not about to just give it away either. We're not talking about a mere $8 either.
