    Baggy shorts + rear dismount = bad

    An FYI. Beware of baggy shorts if you are a fan of the moving rear dismount. Crotch gets caught on the saddle and then you eat it.

    God I wish I had video of it. It would compensate for the bruises and minor bleeding. I'm sure it was hilarious to see.

    Maybe you could post photos of the bruises?... We could make some money. Somebody's bound to be into it as a fetish.

    that's why i always put my hand on the tip of my saddle before dismounting. makes sure no crotch catch and makes sure i don't lose hold of my bike.

    This is just a variation on the "crotch bungie" associated with wearing padded tights.

    I had my sweatpants grab the saddle nose during a wheelie that went too high.
    I HAD to put my feet on the ground and run with the bike.
    I wedgied myself and almost got the bars in the face.

    By the way, does anyone have any video of someone dismounting this way. I want to learn, but i'm afraid I'll die.

    The first time I tried it, I pulled my hands off the handle bars, started to do it, and chickened out and quickly grabbed for the handlebars. I tried again and did it just fine. You don't want to be going too fast so you don't need to run after the bike, but you also don't want to be going so slow that the bike won't slide out from under you. It's really not very difficult to do.

    I do that too. Somehow, I still ate it.

    As for the avatar, it's me with a harmonica in my mouth.

    Today I got to ride in shorts and it was the first time I've ridden since I broke my elbow. It was 88 here today, I hate Texas and thank god that I didn't try a rear dismount.

    it might be really awkward for the first many times you try, till you get comfortable. just go at walking speed. don't jump off or anything, just push the bike away from you with your feet. you'll get smoothe, don't worry.

    I messed up a rear dismount today, though I didn't eat it. I just messed up the timing with my pedals and ended up going to the side instead of just back. I landed fine but my bike almost fell (I had grabbed the seat just in time). It looked pretty terrible, but this woman who saw it all said, "Nice save."

    I think that's God's way of saying, "Don't wear sweatpants."
