Yeah I know that feelin. I had a real bad one at Bundy one year and destroyed my knicks and top, rear wheel, front tyre, ground away the dust cap on a pedal, wore away the side of a brand new show, had the hospital wanting to do plastic surgery on my knee because they could see the gristle under my knee cap, full length of my thigh lost skin my left arm had skin missing from the full length of it and my shoulder as well. Then where I hit the deck, there was a gouge in the bitumen that was about 8' long and an 1" wide that cost the $1000 to fix. This was back in 78 and I'd had a bad fall two weeks before when some dipchit took out my front wheel in a sprint.🤣

Never broken a bone in my life previously.
Despite some big m/cycle crashes.
Have now.
Think I'm officially a washed up old ct now.
Bullchit, you're a real rider now. I haven't broken any real bones just my nose but have fractuured my head, after the truck hit me.

I have watched Cam Meyers race on the Track for the last few years and to say that he is a freak, is an understatement! Then take into consideration that the w.ankers at the AIS, said he was to old too be in the National Team, well what can I say.........................but you f-tards, I have more of a feel for top level riders than you! 🖕

The seat tube looks laid back compared to the modern stuff.
Saddle nose looks a fair way behind the bb?
The wheel base is shorter than the bikes now, with the same size frame. I never took any notice of where the front of the seat was in relation to the BB. Always set my bikes up for how I feel on them, not how others do. ;) That is a 60cm square frame.

Yeah the steerer tube looks long also.
Racing tts got me forward to open the hip angle with a low frontal position.
Ended up on the limit with the roadie too.
Everyone's different though.

Gotta remember, this bike was built for me in 78. 😲
