So, today I found out what it feels like when fingers connect with spokes while doing 50+ km/h. It wasn't a nice feeling. All in all I am very lucky as I only lost some skin - nothing broken.

Anyway, next time I adjust my front derailer I will be a bit more careful.

May I suggest:

"Anyway, next time I adjust my front derailer I will stop and get off the bike first."

How does adjusting the front dérailleur make your fingers contact the spokes? Isn't the adjustment point on the handlebar?

I have images in my head of you riding along with a screwdriver down between your legs

I was searching for the cable adjustment screw located on the frame near the front forks. Most road bikes them for both front and rear detailers. If you can find them without getting tangled in the wheels, they are very handy for performing fine tuning to silence a noisy chain.
