Falls at speed

My concern about speed is running out of a UPD -- bad knees stop me running at all. So I'm looking for comfort rather than speed.

My advice would be to stick to smallish wheels if running is a problem. My worst injurys have occured because of UPDs at high speed on a 36", that i could not run out. Ranging from bruised hips gashed knees and elbows even when wearing pads as they can get dragged out of position and the worst was a dislocated shoulder that is still bothering me nine months later. I found that when learning most falls are very minor, and it is only when ability and confidence grow that you then start to encounter harder falls.

Good luck Phil
