I got out for another ride Friday 1-12, used the Bluetooth for music up in the foothills, worked great and sounds good also, then the phone ring and I pushed the button on the side to answer. It was a Friend of mine from Oregon,I pulled over to talk, thought I might loose him in the mountains. He finally asked where I was and I told him I was on the bike, he said it sounded good and couldn't tell any difference than normal. This helmet is really good and comfortable, the Bluetooth on it is very good. I did read about the com between helmets and you have to push a small button to use that, with gloves on that could be a problem. I have not bought one for the wife yet, we can still use the wired stuff on the bike. If a new helmet would get her on the bike more she would have one tomorrow. LOL This new Bilt Helmet with Bluetooth was a good deal, even for an old guy like me.

Well just an update on the Bilt helmet. I tried to take it back but was a week late. These helmet's are not all that good the build quality is lacking. I can't get the visor off very easy and I took it in to Cyclegear and the lady behind the counter had the same problem. No solution I thought I was doing something wrong, I bought another shield the Mirrored tint according to her it was good for day time and night ridding. It is to dark for night riding so I'm still trying it out. I can see at night but it is pretty dark for night ridding. The Blue tooth head set is OK not the best but OK. I'm going to try it on a long trip next week with this Mirrored shield and see if it works, won't be riding at night much. I think the old saying is always right you get what you pay for. I might take my clear shield with me just in case but it is a pain in the assssssssssss to change. Well that's my up date.
