and by golly is it a life saver. Me and my friend were riding our bikes down the local shopping district and I sped up to cut in front and jump off the curb but when I sped up he did too so he ended up clipping me just behind the pedal. I regained control and straightened the bike out but I was still running with some speed, I looked up and to my horror, less then 10 feet ahead of me is a freaking parking meter. Split second decision, I jump off my bike land on my left palm, tucked and rolled coming to a stop on my knees. Barrel roll mother****er. My bike frame was warped from the impact but I came out with just a small scrape on my elbow. It was a hell of a rush though.


Just to make this a decent thread.

I've barrel rolled before. I work for a music production company, one day I was in the warehouse arranging gear on trucks. We have "deck-carts" which are carts that hold 6 4x8' staging decks that weigh at least 100lbs each. They are stacked with three on each side of a bar in the middle that holds them upright. This cart only had three decks on it and they were all stacked to one side. I was on the ground holding things on the liftgate as my buddy was up in the truck bringing things out. I flipped up a lip that you can rest stuff against so that you don't have to bear all the weight. The lip was up, he brought the cart onto the liftgate and rolled it towards me with the heavy side towards me. It hit the lip and flipped right on over on top of me.

I had over 300 lbs of 4x8 stage decks coming at me... my only solution was a barrel roll, and it saved my life.

I was walking around my university the other day with my friends, trying to get a grip on where I was going when I got a strong urge to barrel roll through the corridor to the elevator. Let me tell you, I barrell rolled the shit outta that place.

That reminds me of a story.. At a marine reunion at my house this kid's dad allowed him to set off fireworks.I was close by him he was setting of bottle rockets.Then he sets one off, the bottle tips over onto the ground pointing at me.It shoots at me- I do a barrell roll(surprisingly).Afterwards Me and him are laughing and everyone's saying " it's not funny you could've been hurt".Psssssh

i call bs on the frame warp. depending on what bike you were ridin. i had a venom x diamondback and i got hit by a car and it had also been droped from about 25 feet high and nothin was wrong with it. if your shit warped it must have been made of aluminum.

Maybe, it's a 10+(guessing, around 10 not exactly sure) year old pacific. I don't know what model. But the handlebars are bent upwards now, The part underneath the handlebars where it goes down to the wheel is curved instead of being straight now. Sounds warped to me. Maybe I just have a shitty bike.

But I've had the barrel roll maneuver save me many a time in my life.

I was doing sports day and I was 'volunteered' for the 800m. There's me and 5 other guys all waiting to run. The firing pistol goes off and they sprint to the finish line, I slowly jog to the end in front of a big crowd and did a roll over the finish line. I got more appaulse than the winner
