I need a new lid, I don't want to spend loads (less than £50), I ride pretty hard and sweat quite a bit. The spesh chamonix got good reviews, but appears to be discontinued. Any suggestions?

    Funnily enough, I was in my lbs looking at a Monza yesterday. Great looking lid and I also found some good comments on previous threads on here. The only thing putting me off is the lack of a peak. They don't don't look great (peaks that is) but they do keep the sun off my pale skin and help keep the rain off my glasses in the wet weather. I might have to go for a Monza and get one of them there cotton racing caps that previously I have seen as the preserve of the leathery old gents I meet on audaxes (maybe they do know a thing or two after all :wink: ).
