    i bought my bike at a garage sale. my neighbor mumbled something about 'tarck' and sent me on my way. it was all cool and fine until i crashed it the next block, got thrown over the bars somehow!! from then on it was never the same. the pedals just kept going and going and wouldn't stop!! i took it to the shop to get fixed but they told me it was already fixed and there was nothing to be done about it
    so i tried sellin it on craigslist but the guy that wanted to buy it arrived with ten other dudes and they rode off with it!! jokes on them though, they took a broken bike!

    if you are going over the bars too often remove the front brake. those things are killers.

    An alternate strategy is to throw yourself at the ground and intentionally miss.
