    Where can I go to buy a good helmet in Seattle Wa area that have competent people to help fit the helmet? I'm at wits end due to the fact that alot of them have people that don't know the products too well or understand how important fit is. I'm just looking for a good shop. Thanks

    Give Tim or Paul in the parts department at Hinshaws in Auburn a try. I know Tim has been fitting people for gear for over 10 years.

    I was fitted for a Shoei Qwest at the IMS in Seattle by a young lady from Seatlle Cycle Center on Aurora Avenue. Seemed to know what she was doing and didn't rush the process. Seattlecycle.com I think.

    Also had a good fitting experience at Eagle Leather down in Auburn for a Nolan 104.

    Thanks everyone for your help! Looks like the first stop is Seattle Cycle Center.
