Here's our very own eyefloater caught in the instant he realized he was about to eat asphalt:



(click for larger)

Note my lovely inset showing his foot (once again) flying off the left pedal. Dude. Time to buy some better pedals (pun intended). And yes, his back wheel is totally off the ground in that shot. I just wish I'd had my camera in motor-drive mode.

That was a wicked 5km/h fall Eyefloater.

What made it better is that you were laughing the whole way down.

My beautiful face is fine, unfortunately my equally beautiful elbow has about an inch of road rash on it. Not a bad loss considering the comedic gold that was my low speed explosion. Remind me not to skid w/ my pedals when I'm leaning back in the saddle ... bad things seem to happen.

It'll break in, not to worry. Mine's comfy but got a little too damp and I may have to tighten it a bit. I have the flyer as my touring saddle and I love it. Eyefloater, that old Brookes I scored is a 5N. I'll bring it by the shop when I have a chance.

I am more than a little concerned. While taking any opportunity for a shameless plug..if Kryptonite has another security flaw then that just sucks for everyone. With all the problems I have been hearing about with flat style key style locks what is the next craze in "high security"? chaining up attack dogs to your bike?

He had some really bad rash (for like the millionth time in his career) and used this stuff. he absolutely swears by it. Quick healing with virtually no scar to speak of. Oh wait.....yer a tough guy..you want the scars. As you were.

Yes indeed, putting the weight on the skid wheel. Good thing you're so damned good looking.
