Can anyone tell me where I can purchase one of
those tight fitting TT Jerseys? I am looking
for an Aero TT helmet as well. I've looked all
over the web and have found -o-. Any help would
be appreciated.

Performance sells an affordable skinsuit; I have one: http://www.performancebike.com/shop/Profile.html?SKU=13321

If you are in an event in the U.S., I doubt they will let you wear one of those teardrop head fairings - they are not helmets. Gotta wear an approved crash helmet.

I bought a Performance skinsuit a couple of years ago and it came apart at the seam between the "jersey" and the "shorts". Fortunately, Performance has that great return policy, so I did...and the same thing happened to the replacement. I handwash and line dry ALL of my cycling stuff, so I was disappointed when the Performance stuff started to come apart. Has their quality improved in recent times?

If you join the Voler e-mail list, you may get another chance at their suit. I just missed the last promo...they ran out of my size.

I got a Bieme team skinsuit this spring, and it pulled a seam the first time, too. Same thing for almost everyone on the team.

I've concluded that with skinsuits, with the extreme tight fit, that you have to put them on very carefully. My Performance one has been fine.

Try out w.bikejerseys.com for the skinsuits and w.sdeals for the helmet. As Doug said the helmets won't be allowed in a USCF event.
