Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

So, I was riding my beautiful ss Kelley to class this afternoon when suddenly I hear a hello from a friend across the street. We have regular Thursday night rides and games so I went to quickly jump on over to talk to him about tonight and if he'd be there. Too quick it seems... I'm not exactly sure what happened but my bike kicked back and I fell forward off the seat and straight onto the top tube as my legs slipped too much for me to just jump and stand over with no problem. My pelvic bone crashed into the tob tube and I actually bounced up and off of it. Now, this has happened before, but never like this. I talked to Matt for a couple more mintues and headed on my way in intense pain. I thought, well it will be just like last time where I had a little pain for a few days. Oh. I was wrong. As I rode to class my destination quickly turned to back home as I realized I was bleeding - profusely. My pants were disgustingly covered in blood - like almost to my knees on both sides bloodfest. I took a shower when I got home but couldn't walk right. My boyfriend asked if I wanted to go to the hospital. I decided that since that was really not a place I can let randomly bleed (minus obvious reasons) and let slide, and because I could barely walk without intense pain, we would go. A friend picked us up and off we went.
The results?

Lacerated Labia

lac·er·ate Pronunciation Key (ls-rt)
tr.v. lac·er·at·ed, lac·er·at·ing, lac·er·ates
. To rip, cut, or tear.
. To cause deep emotional pain to; distress.
adj. (-rt, -rt)
. Torn; mangled.
. Wounded.
. Having jagged, deeply cut edges: lacerate leaves.

la·bi·umPronunciation Key (lb-m)
n. pl. la·bi·a (-b-)
Anatomy. Any of four folds of tissue of the female external genitalia.

Oh trust me. It sucks as much as it sounds like it does. Any deeper and I would have needed stitches. I now have to take baths in baking soda. But, my poor Kelley did not escape without injury. We checked her out just recently to find that the part that must have caused the injury is a brake cable guide on the top tube. It's bent all the **** and and brake cable had blood on it. New fact: I have a vagina of steel (place dramatic music here). Now I walk like a ninety year old man. It's pretty sexy.

I had to share.

I poked a hole in my leg with an unremoved cable guide. Bleeding is a good motivator for getting shet done.

unless the toptube protector is made of clouds...
i doubt anything can really prevent injury in that case, or in any other cases of body meeting toptube.
heal fast! i will probably keep my legs crossed for about half a week thanks to your story.

Thank you, I feel like I just got a trophy. Yay for bikes.

Oh and thanks for all the labia healing warmth. )

A larger frame, with a shorter distance from the injured area to the toptube would have worked in her advantage

I like the way you think.
My friends were discussing that now if they ever had key problems with a u-lock for instance, they're just going to send up the Sabrina signal and call my vagina of steel to the rescue to break the lock.
Damn, pain meds always hit me hard. Dead tired.
And even though I'm going away for the weekend so I won't have much of a chance anyway, I was ordered off my bike for a while sniff.

All web browsers transmit that sort of data. That's how webmasters know what type of browser visits their site most.

Oh yeah, and your story makes me glad I don't have a vagina. Wait a second...having a penis wouldn't have helped!@#$
