X-5 Ejected of the back of the car.
When driving home after a nice ride the X-5 was bucked off the back of the car over a speed hump. The bike sounded as if it was completely trashed after this happened. When I waled back and started looking things over I noticed that the bars were about 9 degrees off, thats it. No other damage! not even a scratch on the finish. Guess that I had two things working in my favor. One I got lucky and two Sherwood makes some stout bikes.
great to hear! though had it been a 29er it would have fallen off and jumped back on the car and you may never have known anything happened

Geeze..........thats kinda extreme for an excuse to get a new Ventana ! TIG.
Yea, Sherwood keeps teasing me with a new a New El Ray every time I go to their site to look up specs for our customers. The Black Sheep is lonely in the big wheel club around here.

These are the things of my nightmares...
I transport my bikes on one of two vehicles. On the roof of one (Yakima fork mount) and in the bed of my truck (also fork mount). Itís always in the back of my mind, especially on long road trips (to Colorado and back, from S. Cal), or even just up to the local trail. I know things are tight, and all secure, but Iíve more than once pulled over, ďjust to double checkĒ.
Iím glad all is OK.
