anyone else feel really alive after a high speed crash?
Usually I just feel pain after a bike crash. So far I've been able to control my crashes reasonably well. Pic is my bike before it's single speed conversion.
When I crash I generally just think "fuck I'm about to get hit by something" so I mostly try to get the fuck out of the way. I've never really had a crash where I just sit around thinking about how bad I hurt, most of my crashes I've been acutely focused on making sure I didn't hear anything fly out of my pockets.
Honestly, the thing i miss the most from biking is that brief sense of freedom when the front wheel locks and i fly over the bars.
It feels like this : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdUUx5FdySs&ab_channel=Madyeti47
Just fell over the bars
Started running a fixed gear and fell in love with the simplicity
Started sprinting and didn't have a foot strapped in
Couldn't get enough weight on the back wheel when I started the front brake
Almost instantly flew over
Bike stayed with me because the straps were nice and tight
All in all some pretty stupid mistakes all coming together
My 3ds is broken
And there is blood on my bars
