    well... a little research and I have come to the conclusion there is an ongoing conspiracy to hurt shins :D
    Some current pedal designs available today are below... they appear to have been designed to be extra painful if you slip.

    I swear... when they design "non slip" bicycle pedals.. they design them so that if you do slip... you pay dearly for it. o_O

    After a few years those bastard end up being from Rusty Hell, waaay worst lol. That bring up good old 6 years old me on his yellow BMX with a busted crooked rear wheel crashing after going too fast downhill. Didn't had a concussion but I had some "diachylon" ( you know those hardcore bandages to close wound) on my head and eldow. aah childhood as a farmer's kids lol

    I had a "Schwin Sting-ray" bicycle as a young boy. I could do big jumps and all kinds of stuff on that bicycle.... it had those first shin eater pedals I posted above on it.

    One time I demonstrated that not only could I do some pretty cool jumps... I could do epic fails also as I ended up with 17 stitches in my chin, and all my molars shattered (they had to cap them all) one time when I flipped it and hit pavement chin first.... the doctor never figured out how I kept from breaking my jaw with that impact...

    When it happened I remember thinking; "oh shit this is gonna hurt"... then a huge impact to my chin, a blinding flash of light and howling in my ears... I could not get up for a bit... and when I did I could barely stand....
