Why I've Always Liked Giro Helmets

Way back in my youth (before I got into distance running), I was a road bike racer. I always swore by my Giro helmet, as they were light, aerodynamic, cool, and strong and they offered replacements for when you were in wrecks (as you should always replace your helmet after a wreck, no matter how minor). If I ever get back into riding again, I'm going to buy another Giro, especially after reading this:

A white paneled delivery truck ran over a UW-Madison graduate student's head on Division Street Friday afternoon and, except for a concussion, he wasn't hurt.
[...]
"I didn't see it coming, but I sure felt it roll over my head. It feels really strange to have a truck run over your head."

His helmet, a Giro, was crushed, but Lipscomb's head was fine.

Just a reminder to Oregon bike riders: If you're under 16, state law requires you to have a helmet on, period. It annoys me to this day to see kids riding down the hills near my house stupidly fast without their helmets on. They're going to eat it once and then regret it.
