    What should me first lid be?
    I need a helmet and I am thinking of a sub $50 lid at my LBS. Anything I should consider?

    if its not very comfortable, you will end up with two helmets eventually. may not be a bad thing if you want a loaner. "AM" helmets offer a bit more protection, i have the 661 Recon and i have tried the Fox Flux, both very comfortable (our head shape may vary) but a little bit more than you are planning to spend.

    a sub $50 mountain specific Bell or Giro may be a good first helmet.

    giro rift is a pretty good bet.
