Not very surprising. The government standards are just "Minimum" standards.. Not maximum. Kind of like plumbing and natural gas pipes in houses. They have a minimum PSI rating that indicates how much pressure they can stand before bursting. They have to meet a minimum standard. Double the wall thickness and they will be much stronger than the minimum. Better? I suppose. But at what cost? Safest way to bicycle is to use one of those exercise bikes in the basement inside your bomb shelter. Not much danger of hitting your head, assuming you don't trip getting off the bike. But you could put 2" foam on the floors to protect from falling. And you're protected from nuclear bombs by your bomb shelter.

I buy mine from Bell. They are quite thorough when it comes to impact
testing.
