hi All,

I was rather shocked and lost of confidence after the incident. I did a post-mortem analysis/research of the accident so that in future one can avoid future situations:
a. The handle bar was imbalance and overloaded due to a water bottle and two bags, and
b. Coming down from steep slope caused the bike to be unstable due to higher speed, small wheel and situation in a. The small wheel has a smaller fork trail and with a greater hill gradient, the centre of gravity will force the bike crash.

Bottom line: Know the road, terrain and weather and get the right bike for touring. Get the back rack for pannier bags. I now know that touring, computing and road bike are very different and know the strength and weakness will help to ride safe.

FYI: I am now fine after the CT Scan and in the safety zone out of the 48 hours observation timeline. Thank you for Patrick, Nick, TJ, CK, many others in Ilovecycling group for your help. Have a safe ride ahead and don't speed like crazy me.

Best Regards

(PS: I can't join this Sat night 128km due to my injury)
