When fixed gear meets "hey, watch this guy"
Just one of those days.
Guy stops by with the IRO that I built up for him. Nice bike, flat bars with -25 degree threadless stem. I'm tooling around on it while it still has the headlight battery attached to the seat and I decide to see if a wheelie is possible. Bear in mind that I'm clipped into Eggbeaters and up, up, and over the bike goes. Hmmm, a bit too much pull on the bars perhaps. Bike flies forward and I do a nice ass plant onto frozen gravel. Snot rockets were flying as all had a good laugh. Bike left with a nice tatto on the rear of the seat (yes, I'll be fixing that later).
One more thing to mark off my list of ways to be-da-fool
