When you Mtb, you do Endos!

When you do Endos, you do faceplants!

Don't do faceplants! Get some beer, smile, watch the Rockies. What's more painful, the Rockies or my face?

I've done my fair share of endos over the years but never got a shinner. Good job.

I saw one that day, very cool. It changes the whole game when your seat post is lowered, amazing difference! I made a mistake and paid for it. Need a new helmet too!

That is a first for me. I get the usual knee, elbow, forearm, hip scrapes and bruises, and occasionally some face scrapes, but this one is a doozy. Quite the conversation piece I might add. The wife hit me! :-D

I'll second that. I've had a command post for about a year now. Total game changer.

Yup - you DO need to learn how to duck. Especially if she finds out you spent $450 on the dropper... :lol:

Welcome to an expensive hobby. I nearly had to take out a mortgage to purchase my latest bike. :shock:
