Break my body

Hopping off of pavements on a bike can be fun.

However, when you hop off of a pavement in a slightly hungover state and forget that you aren’t riding a bike with big soft tyres and 5+” of travel at either end, and are actually riding a very very rigid bike with tyres like concrete, it can get a bit painful.

Anyone got any spare wrists I can borrow?

    Is that like when you do a gert big bombhole on your stiffee (with 5″ travel at the front), shoot out the other side with your weight far too far forward, take off, rotate in a forward manner, land very hard indeed, blow the front tyre, bottom out the forks hard and think you’ve got away with it, except your wrists ache for ages afterwards?

    more like a 15 stone man falling of a wall onto his hands i guess. :-)

    15 stone? I wish :)
    It was more along the lines of:

    Trundle along pavement waiting for car to pass.

    Hop off aforementioned pavement front wheel first by mistake, thinking that the suspension will cope.

    Realise that I’m not riding the Craftworks, and have virtually solid on-one forks and a front tyre at 1000psi.

    Thunk!!!!!

    Ouch!!!!
