So ended up getting the Bell Citi helmet. The lines of the helmet appealed to me since I'm not too partial to the aerodynamic look of most brands. Plus the helmet seemed to fit me well.

I guess because it is the end of the season, had trouble finding the model in stock except in a bright orange colour which is good for visibility while touring but probably not for me. I ended up finding the last one in stock in a BS way across of the city but it had a charcoal fabric finish, instead of the normal plastic covering. I guess that fabric finish is OK...possibly more difficult to keep clean. There maybe be other downsides but considering that helmets are only supposed to last a couple of years, it's not a long term commitment.

I paid only $50 which was quite a bit less expensive than the list price of any of the other stores I visited so think I got a pretty good deal.

I probably would have paid at least double had I not consulted the "Forum", who mostly advised not to spend too much on this piece of equipment.

Thanks all for your input!
