3 HOURS!!but i got there in the end!!! I took some photos before i took them of, but obviously not detailed enough. I searched CC, you tube and google videos, loads of info on how to make sure your cycle helmet is fitted correctly but nothing on putting the straps back together correctly once you remove them for washing (surely i'm not the only person ever to have done this). Could i suggest some one with the technical know how and the ability to put them back together quicker than myself possibly post a video on how to do this? It could mean 3hours extra out on the road for people like myself. Ok there are loads of different brands out there but my particular helmet is made by BELL.
