My OF569

I just bought this helmet and it is really gorgeous. Love all the neat features and can't beat the price. However, it is really small compared to my FF386 - a large that fits me perfectly. It seems the shape is also rounder (not at all oval like the FF386) and presses on my forehead. I am actually disappointed. I'm not sure that I will be able to live with it in the hopes that it will break in. My knoggin circumference measures about 59cm plus maybe a 1/4 or 3/8.

So Phil, what's your experience with this model? Do you think should I try and exchange it for another large? Or should I go up to an X-Large? I don't like loose helmets at all. That's almost worse than a tight one which might eventually break in.
