Tell me about it after you have had a half decent off, you might think differently .
When it hurts, you look at the body first, bike second

Thats a clear case of where the bike will be toast but the rider effectively fine.

Well in my case anyway. I'm a clipped in unco most of the time.
Plus aggressive TCR handling allows for quick (same say twitchy) movements
