Hincapied it!

Hincapied it!

Local strongman racer James Stangeland, in his own words, “Pulled a Hincapie on my commute just now and magically avoided crashing. Managed to avoid shitting myself as well (barely). Fuuuuuuuck!!!”

That’s an aluminum steerer that’s been sheered while riding and to truly “Hincapie it”, you’d have to have had great legs right before and then fall onto cobbles or a ditch, but hey!

Jamie survived and let’s hope this never happens to you. The reason this type of failure is called a “hincapie” is George Hincapie – a famous bike racer – crashed in a big bike race when his steerer tube sheared just like this.
