Well I had to suck it up this weekend.  It felt like the bike was horizontal more than vertical at times.  Was not expecting that on Sani off all places, but having an off day + loose rocks + "helpers" on Sani stealing your shit did not end that well.

Only cosmetic damage though.  I have new respect for how strong these bikes are actually.

you will have to give more detail than that.....and pictures....

I don't let the scratches bother me, it adds character and shows the bike was used. Obviously I don't go around purposefully looking for trouble :deal:

Also, those upper crashbars make the bike look wide, but hell are they strong!   Not a scratch to my plastics.   :thumleft:
