Tyre/Helmet swap...

Postby DanDax1990 » Wed Mar 06, 2013 00:50 am

Just wondering, Would it be a good idea to have a section like the Saddle swap shop for people who buy Tyres and Helmets and they don't get on with them but want to swap for others?

I see a lot of people selling tyres and helmets is a very personal thing fit wise, once you buy and have tried on you can't send back etc...

Probably a stupid late at night idea...

I wouldn’t go near your helmet with a bargepole.

You can send back helmets. I recently bought and sent back three different helmets that didn't fit right. Best to buy from a shop though or online seller that uses collect+ so you can just drop anything you don't want at a local shop. Got the refunds with no problems.

I could see wearing a tyre on your head but using a helmet on your wheel might not work...

Oh that's not what you meant...
