    First endo

    Today I am celebrating my first endo and dirt sandwich. Happened just a few hours ago and I'm comfortably sitting on my couch reliving the moment. It took a year, but it seems worthy.

    I'm really thirsty, but getting up isn't an option.

    Enjoy your Sunday!

    I had time to tuck & roll instead of endo. Dang hikers & my speed made the choice for me as to which fork to take. I had to bomb a small section to trail I had never been on. First feature I saw was a two foot step. Cleared it and was fine til the back tire would not come out of the eight inch deep rut I was trying to hop. Glad it wasn't rocky.

    Translation: you rode too fast.

    "it IS possible that you are faster or slower than anybody else who is having at least as much if not more or less fun"

    Were you clipped in? that adds a bit to the adventure! I've endoed dozens and dozens of times. It's gotten to the point that I just unclip. step over the bars and wait for the saddle to hit me in the back!

    Oh yeah, I was definitely clipped in, but ejected with such force it released the bindings.

    Basically I was rolling through the woods at decent (but not crazy) speed and went over some rollers. Got airborne on the last one but unfortunately launched from a poor line position (too far to the edge of the track), lined up perfectly with a stump obscured by overgrown ferns.

    As I was about to land, I realized it was going to suck, but there was no avoiding it. Next thing I know, I'm picking dirt out of my teeth. My first concern were the carbon rims recently installed, then I checked my body out.

    Fortunately no damage to the bike, but my back is sure feeling it today. (I landed mostly on my left side). Later in the ride I had another small spill, which tore my front brake line, which prompted a trip to the LBS for replacement (I don't mess with hydro brakes).

    Boy I can't wait for the next one!!!!

    Not.
