I turfed it pretty hard on my morning ride. I probably would have gone home, but work was closer and they provide free pain killers. I came of a jump on an otherwise smooth (or so I thought) section of the trail. I was going really fast and only had 15 ft or so to avoid a big hump on the left side of the trail. I made it over the hump ok by trying to absorb it, but the small ditch on the other side ate my bike. I went over the bars, landed on my back and my bike came tumbling after. My lower back hurts really bad when I walk, but oddly enough riding the rest of the way down wasn't too bad. Sitting or standing is fine, its just walking that hurts. If I'm not feeling better by 1:00 or so I think I'll go see a doctor. This sucks because I probably won't be able to ride to work tomorrow, I really look forward to that.
By the way, I'm pretty sure a suspension fork would have saved my ass, I can't wait until I'm done building up my Jamis.
