While thats not so extreme, turns out if you’re working on your bike when kept upside down and if your leg slips or something of that sort, your face or neck could smack right into the sharp fork dropouts. Although a theoretical scenario, it doesn’t mean it can’t happen. See : http://cozybeehive.blogspot.com/2008/03/human-error-vs-redesign.html
