    That's definitely a low-spoke count wheel.

    He took a spill, trying to avoid another cyclist. Reports said he got very nervous, when the other cyclist would not yield and he "wobbled" the bars violently, before taking a hard face/elbow plant. Looks like his Dec 14th concert will either see him singing from a wheelchair....or outright cancelled.

    Rolling Stone could care less, what Bono rides. However, I've seen Tabloid photos of him riding a Budnitz titanium commuter and various cruisers.

    Took me a considerable chunk of my evening to figure out why my wife's iPhone started playing U2 when plugged into her car, even as she never used it as an iPod. Turned out they pushed that damn album, and special effort required to clean it out.
    Fuсk you, U2.

    At the speed he must have been going, judging from the "high-energy" type of his injuries, (around 25-30 mph) he is actually lucky. That's easily enough velocity to sustain a major cervical fracture/spinal chord trauma.

    He coulda ended up like Superman.

    I've never been in Central Park but if he's going so fast as to sustain those injuries after trying to avoid another cyclist he must have been going too fast for the situation (Bono's skill, width of path, curves, pedestrians and cyclists)?

    Of course he was riding fast. Everyone rides (and walks) fast in NYC.

    ^^I'm going to go out on a limb and say Bono most definitely does not have those skillz.
