thanks man. i guess the pipe works pretty good, cause i did a flying leap over the handlebars into the asphalt at about 25mph. i was impressed with my tuck and roll, cause it could've been a lot worse. my doctor says that i probably tore a ligament or something in my left shoulder. my head still works as good as it used to. the bike did a couple flips after it landed on me, and the only thing wrong with the bike was the brakes started to drag a little. no bent wheels, i love bmx parts.
stay tuned for some photos of the brakes and linkage, cause it really turned out sweet. (brake failure was not the reason for the spectacular crash, bunny hopping over stuff at 25mph is the reason)
