Lisfranc injury – occupational hazard?

Unclear what’s going to destroy me first: cycling or studying.

Lisfranc injury occurs when a bicyclist’s foot is caught in the pedal clips …  It causes fracture or dislocation at the tarsometatarsal (Lisfranc) joint.” – High Yield Gross Anatomy

Fixie kids – how common is this?

BTW:  this is only slightly less cool than:
“Calcaneal (lover) fracture occurs when a person jumps from a great height (e.g., a second story window).  I usually involves the subtalar joint and is associated with fractures of the lumbar vertebrae and the neck of the femur.”

    Never had a problem with clips except when I first got em I’d fall in my side trying to get out. Same with clipless bike shoes.

    If the toe clips were too tight I would get pain there.
