I usually call anything over 200 a "measurement error" and forget about it. But it's not that simple; cardio for me is 165 and threshold in the 180's, so my 200 heart rate isn't the same as an...

The closest I've come to a "mechanical failure accident" was a fixed gear peddle strike. Not having a freewheel mechanism was the failure. I think it just doesn't happen that often.

It probably does make a neck injury more likely, but to a very slight degree compared to protecting your face. We dislike full facemasks because we need the breeze to keep cool.
