      Community, is there a way to stop handlebars from rotating all the way around in a crash? I myself have ended up in the dirt with my leg stuck in between the handlebar and the top tube, and it left quite a bruise. Yesterday same thing happened to my buddy and it snapped his arm bones like nothing.

      Ouch!

      It sounds like you’re looking for a product that limits bar rotation. Some bikes have this built in (Trek calls it Knock Block, Canyon has something too) and there are also headset-based solutions like the Acros Lock Block you might be able to add to your bike:

      These solutions are primarily designed to protect the bike’s frame, rather than the rider, but they should do both!
