    It Pays to Inspect for Crack(s)
    Rolling along, hit a few of my fave comp dips at mach .5, sidekicked 3 or 4 bums in the Tenderloin to show e'm what's up,happened to glance down at my alum bar as I table-topped a transit bus.
    Holy Fk!
    I , w my X-Ray vision, see the ever yawning crack in my handlebar, I landed safely,crushing 2 or 3 asian built cars upon impact.
    Bar held together...
    Moral of this tale....Inspect the equipment before marauding through the innocents.

    See the offending crack in pics, running perpendicular (vert) just to the outside of the clamp point....
