As per my last post, I'm learning how to use clipless shoes. First 3 days of practice went fine, but on the 4th I came to a stop and couldn't get my foot out in time -- in truth, I got one foot out, but the bike fell the other way. So I and the bike tipped over to my left -- I caught myself with my hands, but the bike clattered to the ground with me astride it.
It's a carbon-frame Giant Revolt. I see no visible damage to the frame, and I'll take it by the bike shop tomorrow, but since there's no visible damage I believe they'll say "it's fine". Which hopefully it is. But how worried should I be with this kind of crash? I've read that when you crash a carbon frame, you should get it inspected professionally. Does tipping over like this count as a crash?
I know that no-one knows the state of the frame, and without X-raying it -- which seems a lot to do -- there's no way to know for sure. But then again "probably alright" doesn't feel very safe.
If every time I tip over while learning clipless means I could break the frame, this seems a possibly terribly expensive proposition.
