Endomatic

Had my first endo in almost 15 yrs.It was dusk and I was hurrying home before dark. I was taking a shortcut thru the schoolyard when the grass I thought was there (alwaya was before!)was now freshly
turned over earth.WOOP! I always have to laugh when I make semi acrobatic 'spills'.I said outloud,"Very funny guys!" Oh well.The bike got a long overdue bath out of it.
Keep her upright!

Wish I could say that, unfortunately over the bar crashes are a normal part of riding around here if you are pushing yourself. The key is knowing how to crash.

Don't mean to offend anyone but why the heck do people think an endo involves falling; as far as I know it's simply going from two wheels to front wheel "balancing", for want of a better word.

Anyway, nice story, and congrats on the fall.

You knew exactly what he meant. Stop being such a literalist and enjoy life.

Yes, I knew exactly what he meant. I'm just asking you the following: (for example) in a thread which it is totally clear that the actual thing we're talking about is a derailleur hanger, not a dropout as the person stated, would you not tell them their mistake?
I'm just trying to help.



OneTinSloth: Great site!
