I hope you get to feeling better soon.
You're right about the tailbone. Can't sit too long to type.
I've read above about what specs helmets were designed to meet. Mine was an old-school Bell helmet from a bike shop. It has a deep crack and the foam liner is broken. I suppose it may yet be true that it only saved me from being a vegetable, who knows? But if a man told me I was about to be flung tumbling down a paved road, and asked if I wanted to wear a helmet or not, the answer will still be a resounding "Yes!"
