Wait til the new Giro helmet hits the market (forgot the name... but the carbon reinforced one) and the Pneumo's price should go down quite a bit. I like Lazer helmets myself and I also have a couple of Vigor helmets that are really nice (probably the nicest helmet nobody has heard of.) They are light, well ventilated, and have a nice fising line retention system.

My standard response would have been "after Interbike" which is over. So anytime soon. The shop I work at does not sell Giro, so I really am not the right person to answer this... but I am sure someone else on here knows.

Do you like Sidi microfit shoe system? Limar F107Lone Gunman

Nice high end helmet for a decent price, think I got mine from Performance < $100. Great fit, and if you fit Giro, Limar is a great fit.
