Which reminds me, was it you who was obsessed with trying to get everyone to say brake disc instead of brake rotor ages ago because it was an American term?

Having spent 10 weeks off the bike after snapping my collarbone right on the end (I'm always one for making A&E's and my surgeon's life a little more interesting, he's actually called Mr D Limb which definitely gave me a chuckle when I got that letter) I'm keen to find out what kind of protection could have been offered.

I actually think the break was down to a combination of my full face helmet smacking into my collarbone as well as the location of the straps on my back pack (I didn't have time to put my hands out to try and cushion the impact and kind of slid on my head for a bit).

I'm considering investing in some american hand-egg pads for the next time I start on the serious drop offs again, but don't want to look like a dynasty reject, so any product that could limit the chance of me not being on the bike can only be a good thing.

I've got to agree with most of the people on here though, that survey does need a bit of tweaking...
