I tripped the other day and now don't trust my feet. Been sitting here since. I'm starting to smell.

Help!

Sell the bike and buy a new one. That way you can have your confident back. Then, you'll have a bike you'd ride and we'll have another member who bought your old bike for cheap Win win situation!

Hi Guys, thanks for the feedback - both to the guys who thinks I am a troll (or just ridicilous ), the guys who think I should grow balls (will try and see if I can make them grow further - even though it will not improve the bike much) and to those of you who tells me the gear will be ok and I should just move on. Regardless of your take, it is all appreciated.

On a practical note - when would you change a handlebar from a drop/crash? It is common knowledge that materials like alu will snap after a (sometimes) invisible stress fracture while steel will bend first.

thanks

If you bought the bike to have something perfect, you won't find it, never will. Appreciate what you have and you will enjoy it far more. Falling over at stationary is a great reminder to be safe when in motion. I would prefer this over learning in a much graver situation. This is the bright side of what happened to you. BTW check your steering stops, they tend to break really easy.

Will check - thanks for the reminder. Never expected something perfect (it's Italian), just more concerned in regards to structural damage on handle bar etc which could lead to failure later on.

dropping a bike while stationary really, really can't hurt anything significant. fix the scratches and it will literally be just as good as it was.

what I'm wondering is why you didn't throw yourself under the bike. I've dropped bikes several times in exactly the same situation (forgetting about the sidestand or only partially deploying it). EVERY time, I reflexively threw myself between the bike and ground - human body is softer than the ground! Yeah, it cost me bruises every time and once a couple broken ribs, but it's my bike yo.
