I should expand on my above post, since it was written on my iPhone.

Your helmet is cracked, so you absolutely need to get a new one. Doesn't matter if it's $50 or $250, just get something new that fits your head, i.e. it won't move around or fall off but it won't give you headaches.

For cages, nothing beats Bauer for VISIBILITY. They have the True Vision spacing which seems less distracting and metal finish is also less distracting than black.

4500/5100 = regular bars, true vision spacing

8500/7500 = oval bars, true vision spacing

9500/9900 = slim oval bars, true vision spacing, lighter weight, chrome finish

Reakt = slim oval bars, true vision spacing, titanium = lightest weight, matte finish

I've used most of them and you get what you pay for, but they are all pretty good. If you can find a good deal on the 8500/7500 cages, those are very good for the money. You might be able to find a clearance 9500/9900 cage which is even better. And if you can spring for the Reakt, it's like not wearing a cage at all.
