 @tacklingdummy: Happened on my road bike a few weeks back. It's near fun, especially when asphalt is involved. This is why we ride mountainbikes.

 If 26" wheels and old geo was around the hospitals would be a a lot more packed
  • 12 1
 No, as riders will adjust stupidity to bike geometry ;-)

 As someone that just switched over from old geo and 26”, I completely agree.

 I don't think thats true. 29" wheels and modern geo have led to much higher speeds. And speed is the killer. Impact energy grows quadratically with velocity.
  • 1 0
 @Ttimer: it's very much true. Having slacker geo if you're body weight goes over the center of gravity of your front wheel when you land front heavy your going over.

 @dhagz: Yeah, but that assumes the rider doesn't get accustomed to that stability.

When I converted to 29", it only took a few rides to get more confident in the downhills, which resulted in going faster. When I got into enduro (next to XC and marathons), the added suspension travel and slack geometry (compared to my XC bikes) upped the speed even more.

In the end, everyone just rides as fast as their bikes allow and they can read the terrain, given the skills you have. With more stabile bikes, you simply go faster, but the risk of falling off really doesn't change. Like @Ttimer said, if anything, the impacts might even be bigger.

 @jeroenk: Yeah agreed but I'm just talking about going nose heavy on jumps and how geo has a positive on going nose heavy compared to 26" old geo

 I think some of those saves don't have enough commit in them yet to be considered so. All hail the senders that save.
