    when u are surrounded by other riders at 30+mph and a pileup starts it can be difficult to fall gracefully

    Calves look sexy without any hair imo.

    I just put the CAAD on the stand, and everything if fine, except for the wheels being like a mm or two out of true. Considering what happened, I'm so lucky that what damage I got was all that happened to me. I only trashed my helmet, a little road rash, and out of true wheels.

    Today I went on a less than spectacular ride with some roadies. Rode out 14 miles, turned around, about 2 or 3 miles later I noticed a wobble in my NDS pedal. I was thinking that maybe I was tired and my pedal stroke was really bad, or maybe the pedal bearing was going bad.

    Then it got really wobbly so I pull over and notice my NDS crank arm is loose, no problem I have a tool kit! But guess who's allen tool stops at 6mm? No worries, one of my roadie friends has to have a legit multitool with an 8mm, not the 3 I was with at the time. Maybe the 1 friend that took a longer route, lets wait for him. He does have a multitool, yay, the day is saved! Unless he took off the little 8mm sleeve for his topeak tool, ****.

    Limped home, had to stop every mile or so to jam my chain tool and rubber band into the bolt to tighten it just enough to not fall off, arg!

    TL: DR: rode bike, crank arm bolt came loose, no tool, limped home, rage.

    Good note, I went to McDs for lunch, got me one of these;

    Totally going in my bottle cage.

    This is a useful question. Is there some special technique that makes it so that you get road rash on your calves but not other places? I've had plenty of experience crashing but I never thought I was doing it wrong.

    This seems like it would be too hard to accomplish fixed and I don't think I've ever had time to unclip, so I was always just trying to keep the bike from twisting up and not hitting my head.

    You can either try to sit up, try to roll, or try to fold a leg underneath you. None of those options are fun.

    When I started skateboarding way back when, learning to fall properly was important to keeping yourself from breaking. The same when I started judo classes, the first thing they teach you was how to fall so as to not get hurt when someone throws you across the room.

    Thus far, in most of my bike crashes, it happened so quickly (damn diagonal railroad tracks) that I didn't have time to think about it. But maybe all my previous experience in falling has helped me on a subconscious level and I just automatically keep my wrists and elbows tucked in, absorbing the impact on my hip and shoulder, etc.

    In that bicycling.com link, the way Thomas deliberately goes over the handlebars, seems like a really good way to break a collarbone. I'd think it best to do it motorcycle style and just lay it down.

    Back when I skated everyday I practiced falling just by running on grass or carpet pretty much full speed, then rolling. Do a few on the right shoulder then a few on the left shoulder.

    I need a fries adaptor SO BAD!

    Tuck and roll makes sense when you are out in front of your bike. For me, a fishtailing situation has been more common where the bike was more or less in front of me and I was basically fighting to the last for a recovery. This has meant that I end up on my side with my hip into the ground.

    Yeah, sometimes you gotta lay it down if your bike wanders too far from parallel to direction of travel or vertical to the ground. Try to keep your arms in and enjoy the slide.

    Ok. You're right. Roadrash is the #2 reason I shave my legs.
    Attack in the feeling because it says I'll win absolutely.
