That's like asking "Did I marry the right woman" a week after the honeymoon. Kidding aside, you did good. The Giro prices have dropped considerably in recent months. Usually I price compare between performance, nashbar, supergo and jensonusa. They'll all match competitor pricing, but won't allow you to use a coupon on top of that.

Well, there is still time to cancel or change the order.

I was at Supergo the last two weekends. Two weekends ago, they were selling the Pneumo '04 (not in a great variety of colors) for $95. This past weekend, all helmets were an additional 25% off, making it even less. I picked up the Atmos '04 for $135 the first weekend, but when I noticed the 25% off sign the following weekend, I mentioned it to the manager and he gave me the 25% back so I wound up paying only $101. You might want to give them a call if they're in your area and see what they've got and what the price is today.
