We posted a photo from this jump on our Facebook page a couple days ago, but didn’t exactly know what happened. We now know total suckage happened, but we still don’t know exactly how or why. Just a friendly reminder to check all your bolts and adjustments regularly and to take an extra-close look at things after a crash, otherwise you might end up on Mtbr for the wrong reason.

Totally forked

About the author: Don Palermini

Chicago-born editorial director Don Palermini became a cycling-based life-form in the sixth grade after completing a family road bike tour of his home state. Three years later he bought his first mountain bike to help mitigate the city's pothole-strewn streets, and began exploring the region's unpaved roads and trails. Those rides sparked a much larger journey which includes all manner of bike racing, commuting, on- and off-road bike advocacy, and a 20-plus-year marketing career in the cycling industry. Now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area and pedaling for Mtbr, his four favorite words in the English language are "breakfast served all day," together in that order.
