Northstar is a really nice place & the people there are always nice. I just wish that there was a place a little closer to the city and a little less pricey. I find myself trying on things at Northstar and then buying it off the internet at a 25% lower cost.
I much prefer to just buy it there - but when your spending $500 to $1k on something, saving $100 to $250 is just not worth the 'take it home now' feeling.
Anyone know of another place in the Chicagoland area?
would like to dig this thread right up. I'll be returning to Chicago over christmas and want to purchase a helmet while im there as we get ripped off in Australia. Can anyone recommend somewhere not too far from the Oak Park area?
You might try calling Northstar before you get here. About a week ago I got a postcard from them, they were doing 20% off on in stock helmets. Not sure how long it was supposed to last, I discarded the ad because I already bought a helmet from them.

Ok thanks guys. It may be worth the drive over there just to see that blue RS! Shipping to my door would definitely be easier but I want to try a helmet on as I'm not sure what size I need to be (have done the measurements etc).
