Just dodged a MAJOR bullet.

Went to do some shuttle runs today Got the first run inAt the bottom it felt like something was off on the front of the bike get off. Check the head set to only find that it vibrated loose and that the cable came off on the front brake. Got back tightened it, put the cable back in and am about to head back out.

Dude, you were a trainwreck waiting to happen. Strange to have 2 things go wrong at the same time like that. Hope the rest of the day went better.

Worst that could have happened: Ovalized Headtube, going head first into a ditch.

Thats a quick fix though......I got a de-ovalizer made specially for headtubes a few days ago!.....and ditches are fun, and least its not jagged rocks at a 70degree pitch.
