    I plan on embarking on a 16 day bike ride from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh city in December. This is a guided and supported tour. I already have a bike rental squared away with the touring company, but will still need additional bike gear which at the bare minimum includes a helmet. Are there stores in Hanoi that will sell helmets that fit larger heads? What about seat posts and bike gloves? Please advise!
