  1. I feel terrible for laughing but I can relate–my first bike with gears was the best gift ever, even after I slammed on the front breaks only and literally flew over the handlebars and had the bike land on top of me. I realize now that I was very lucky, especially since helmets were rare in the eighties. But I was still in love…

  2. I was 14 and had just got a new bike, my first racer, a powder 10 speed blue Sun Solo. The brakes were really impressive so I decided to show them off to my friends. The result? As I catapulted forward I let go of the handlebars and was smacked in the back of head by the saddle with enough force to knock me out. I came round a few seconds later surrounded by friends laughing their heads off.
