In my bike shop days, we would sometimes tell male customers that the then common stem shifters on starter level 10 speeds were what their genitals would impale upon in a crash with a car; that they would be wise to move up a level of bike or have us swap out the shifter for a DT.

At my last race ever, I was staying at the old, once grand hotel in Nashua, NH the night before. As I came in with my bike and gear, an old man approached me and told me it happened to him. Since then, I've talked a few into changing their set-ups.

A friend of mine rammed into his stem off roading. He said it was a huge relief when at the hospital, they stuck a tube through his abdomen into his bladder. He had crushed his urethra. I used to play mind games with him sometimes. Ralph would be on top of some drop and be saying out loud I can do this. I'd say hey Ralph, remember that time you crushed your urethra? He curse me and walk. Then we'd laugh.
