Meaningless. I was riding with a group of about a dozen people when my front wheel locked up and I went flying over the bars and fractured my collar bone. None of the several people behind me saw the cause until one of them picked up my bike. Someone in front of me kicked up a small stick with their rear wheel. It hit my spokes (I heard it a split second before I went down), got spun up and lodged horizontally between the right braking surface of my rim and the brake caliper, causing the front wheel to lock.

Wish I had saved the photo someone took. Quite the freakish accident. The good news was that the wheel and my crabon fork were fine. No assplosions.
