An important thing to consider is a place that has a satisfaction guarantee. If it doesn't fit you can always return it then.
That being said I am the same way. I measure right at 59 and have found that both the Large AND the Medium fit me fine. Keep in mind that just because your head measures right at 59 doesn't mean you want your helmet to be exactly that. It should fit like a belt, not too tight but not loose.
I went with a large helmet because it still fits snuggly and I have some extra room for the winter when I want to wear a cap or balaclava under it. The choice is yours, good luck!

I got these shorts because they were on sale and I needed something to throw in the rotation for my louis garneau's. The sizing is the same as the LG's (except with Giordana you should size up..it's euro sizing) but the cut of the fabric is a lot different.
The Silverline's panels curve forward to accommodate your riding. If you're just standing off the bike or walking around they'll sag a bit (not too much) in the butt and such. Also the front is cut lower than the LG's.This concerned me but as soon as you get on the bike and get into position the panels straighten out and you're ready to go (and you're not buying shorts to walk around in are you?....don't lie...we know you wanna look cool ;)
The chamois is a little thinner than I'm used to but it is very smooth to the touch. The stitching is also superb (not to mention very attractive) inside and out. I don't know about durability yet but they definitely look like they'll hold up a long time.
In conclusion, these are one of the better middle of the line shorts and I would recommend them to anyone looking for another pair for their rotation. They won't do you wrong.
The sizing is pretty accurate (as it usually is with PI). I usually wear a size large short and a size large tight is just right. I tried medium and it was really small on me and the xl was very big.
Go with what you'd usually get I'd say.
they do run a tad long though.
Not from what I experienced. I don't own it but I've tried a few on and it felt pretty good to me. It's not THEE lightest of the Bell line but it is up there with some of the best (I think the array is their first or second model down from the 250 dollar ones.
