I'm the Wiz, and nobody beats me!
Now that's similar to what us Carpenters would have done. A knee brace or other types of braces are the strongest at a 45 degree angle. The top of those plywood braces will have the most force where they are attached to the top of the cleat(?) so make sure they are fastened really good at the top for a pulling outward force. Anywhere else only keeps it from sliding downward.

Glad to hear the damage wasn't too heavy.

Well it's not how I planned to spend this beautiful Saturday afternoon but it's all fixed. There really wasn't much damage that I can see. This chain guard might have been the worst thing but I'm not sure if it wasn't like this before. I know it was pretty bent up.

Outstanding, repair job!
Now, only the wire hangers look sketchy.
I’d probably go with Cam Buckle Straps for that task.
But, that’s just me.
If the wire has held up without fail, then it seems your good to go for another 10 years or so.

Yes I fastened them to the shelf, I've been building things for a living for 25 years now. In retrospect I should have skipped the metal shelf brackets and built the whole thing out of plywood. Now I can finally get back to my POS house project.

Brother Bikewhorder:
My heart goes out to you. The sound of that crash must have made your blood run cold. Thanks for sharing. We all grow by learning from successes and failures, our own and those of others. A good book on the topic is To Engineer is Human: The Role of Failure in Successful Design by Henry Petroski.
Ride on!
