    That was weird. I suspect it was just loose. I had my rear wheel pop out of the drop-out on my Jamis once when pulling the kids up the driveway in the trailer. I had just replaced the skewer with the one for the trailer mount and I assumed I didn't tighten it enough.

    I ski double black diamonds.

    When you close the lever of a skewer it should be hard enough to leave a mark on your hand.

    Yeah, I wish I had gotten vid of Brian on the ledge. Next time.

    Greg, sorry, it's all going in. The vid is only 1 min 45 sec long. I promise, you can get some great vid of me falling another time to make up for it.

    Loading to YouTube now...

    I've also read that you should start to feel resistance at the halfway mark.

    YouTube is taking it's sweet time with it, from what I gather.

    Sorry no music... I was in a hurry.

    That rock is easily like 4-5 feet. It looks much smaller in the video.

    I don't think there's anyway that rock is even close to 5 feet, it's more like 2-3 feet, IMHO.

    I think you missed my sarcasm. 18" is more like it....
