    The LEATT is a really nice helmet. I was gonna buy that instead of the 6D... until I tried on the 6D. Fit just a tiny bit better than the Leatt.

    @mountaingirl sara I believe Performance Cyclery in Valencia carries some of the 6D helmets. In fact I got this email from them a couple days ago. Might be worth a look or a phone call.

    @horsebikerider just got a 6D the other day.....she seems to like the way it fits.

    She ordered hers directly from 6D.

    @herzalot - I might have missed it, but is there anywhere to try on an IXS? I like the looks, and might take a chance... But I'd really like to try some domes on my Charlie Brown shaped head before I buy. :p

    Also- to the group at large... Who has the largest selection in store to try on? I'll go see what the Path has, but I don't really know what they carry in helmets... We shall see.

    I got mine at Bike Co. Path didn’t have many when I was looking. Jenson usually has a good selection.

    I was already starting to look at new helmets, so this will just make me look faster... This Fox was a few years old.

    For what it's worth, I crashed hard last week. I didn't think I hit my head in the crash, until I looked at my cracked Smith Forefront. No head pain whatsoever. My shins, on the other hand...

    The wife and I took a ride to Bike Co. today... I went there just to try on the IXS, but I ended up being underwhelmed. It was an OK fit, but it honestly felt similar to my Fox. My Charlie Brown head fell in love with the Bell Sixer, however. It was instantly a better fit than the Fox it replaced. :inlove:

    MIPS, adjustable visor, built in GoPro mount, adjustable click wheel... And it's round. Like my head. :p

    The guys in the shop seemed cool... That's another plus. :thumbsup:

    I have had repeated thoughts I should post up, “Look at Bell” and did not. Bell is my noggin’s helmet of choice!

    I guess I didn't think of Bell right away, because I still have a couple lower end ones hanging in the garage from my first couple years riding. They were ok, but I never loved the feel... This one feels like it was personally designed for my noggin. :inlove:

    I think it needs to go for a test ride tomorrow... Just not at 4:00 AM again. :cautious:
