So today on a training ride I had a pretty bad crash on my Cento Uno at about 22 mph ( lost control after rolling over some rumble strips accidentely), luckily I was not hurt that bad nor was the frame at it appreared. I only had a popped tube but the SRAM Red deraiuler, frame, bars and crank appeared unscaved. My question is, do you think it is wise to take the bike to a bike shop and get it checked out by a professional to ensure it is safe to ride again? How is this normally done?
You might want to get it checked out out, but if you just went down and didn't really hit anything it's probably fine. I was coming back from a race with some 90mm wheels on my bike, and there were pretty strong gusts that day, 45mph. On of the straps on my rack broke, and the bike flew off on the highway at 85 mph and into a drainage ditch. It had some bad road rash and bent the saddle rails, but other than that it was fine, carbon bars and all.
