Apparently the mod team had slightly more faith than I did.

According to Reuters, Mr. Smith's uncle, Zachary, was riding with him at the time and was involved in the crash. When asked about his condition, Zachary commented, "oh, the pain...the pain...."

...I had a Smith helment for a while. It was a pretty good helment, but I like the Specialized one I replaced it with better. They said it's carbon fiber reinforced and also lighter. Reinforced carbon fiber plastics are not just for bicycles any more.

I had wanted a Smith helmet but the road version wasn't out and the Giro Synthe had come out and I liked that helmet just a touch better sadly I said it fits at the time I bought it but I should have gone for the large the medium eventually got a little tighter than I wanted. I don't know what I was thinking back then. I still like the Koroyd that Smith uses it does look cool but I have heard it isn't as breathable as we wanted.

Also have we turned a new leaf? An open thread not going down to our usual lock worthy commentary. Go BikeForums now time to let us down...LOL (please don't)

As I was sliding along on my head the thought, this helmet is working great, went through my head. Giro Synthe. Too bad I was past their free replacement window.

uhm.. no. I said it on the first post.

But NoooOoOoOoo. The mod team had to start placing wagers.

The self-restraint shown by the members in this string-of-comments is, to quote Carly Simon, "...the stuff that dreams are made of". Maybe we should send a get-well card to Mr. Smith and inform him that he has evoked an anomaly. To quote another singing artist, Tems, "This is the peace you can not buy".

I do think it's a shame that he uses "Jack Smith" as his professional name because "John Smith Brings John Doe Indictment" would be such a great headline.


Now, if he can partner with an attorney named John Q. Public...

One more--I'm pretty sure jacksmithing is actually a trade.

And there's my set of Dumb Dad, Esq. jokes for the day.

All I know is they should have put Rush in that Hall of Fame like when it first started even if unrelated to music and all about moderators which they probably haven't been.
