    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.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    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!
