There is almost no way to avoid crashing when your steer tube breaks. Cross post from BrokenBikeParts!
This weekend my friend’s roommate crashed his brakeless fixie and went down on his helmetless head. The Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles put 65 stitches into his forehead alone. Another 20 or so went into his face. Wear a helmet. Brakes are a good idea, too. Don’t be a fashion victim.
Don’t try to ride your bike down the stairs in your apartment while drunk. It won’t end well.
Before you get on a bike and start riding, it helps to know how to stop and get off.
In addition to preventing some nasty chafing, clothing actually provides some protection when you fall. Via sidiergo.com
