    Neurologist says bike helmets are useless

    Neuro Surgeon. I work with surgeons. If there's another group of people who are as arrogant and think they know more, I hope I never meet them.
    They exist and they're known as "roadies" next best: ski racers

    He's a neuro surgeon. He's not a physicist. He's not a safety engineer. The only thing he know about head injury is how to fix the damage after it happens.
    Personally I have whacked my head pretty good on tree branches and was glad I was wearing my helmet.

    Then yes, the helmet is worthless.
    Clearly, this guy is fixing to skate on his inlines, not ride a bike. Either way, he's toast if he crashes and hits his head

    Re: Neurologist says bike helmets are useless

    Based on that article, those drivers who almost hit me from behind were not totally idiots, just respectful of my ability to dodge them? That's a stupid assumption. :banghead:
    What works for me may not work for you. What's best for you depends on many factors. We are different from each other.
