What caused the major malfunction that led to you flipping your bicycle @ 40+? OUCH ... that musta hurt .
I went down at 25-30 mph and felt it for a month..mine was black ice though not malfunction.. malfunction of the brain mabey!
All I remember was... all of a sudden I see the ground coming up fast and you say to yourself "this is gonna hurt .. then thud ,thud ,ooof ,crunch, & the screech or metal on the tar. then quiet" like that quiet few moments after a child hurts himself....up until the pain realization sets in then the wailing starts.
Except my wailing is me screaming out rude colorful metaphors and tossing the bike around for a few minutes. ...Let me guess chain locked up on ya?
