| || | Normally the other store would carry the same brands or similar brands.... The price might be slightly different, but most places sell stuff for the recommended sale price (MSRP) as the store isnt going to sell it for the price they bought it at. Theres going to be a markup. How much will depend on the store, yeah....but some places it wont be but a few dollars difference. So really, you just spent more time driving to another store to pay a few dollars difference, and have spent more on fuel, making it a more expensive helmet. Anyways....the point of my previous post was that even if I was to say that a Charles Owen, or a Tipperary, or a Troxel was the BEST EVER helmet for whatever reason, doesnt mean the OP should go out and buy that helmet. They need to try on ALL the available helmets to them to decide what fits THEM the best, not what fits you or I the best. Even if its a price difference, they should take the one that fits them the best, not what was most recommended. Why wear a badly fitted helmet? (And this statement is not to say that everyone should wear a helmet or must wear a helmet....just a comment) A badly fitted helmet is just as bad as no helmet. (Again, just a comment, not saying you must or should wear a helmet or not. I could care less if someone does or doesn't wear a brain bucket, as it is their personal choice/barn rule).
