Everyone should get one...


I just got this performance enhancing attachment. It's easy to find. Throw yourself down some steps. If the emergency room says it's only a severe sprain, demand your right to a second opinion (I recommend Temple Orthopedics) to get what you need... A diagnosis of a compression fracture. Unfortunately it's only good for about 4-6 weeks, then you have to do it all over again. Yes that is a symbolic anchor.

That's gonna affect your shifting on the downhill.

Ya know, when my older sister did that to herself in college I never accepted the, "I was too sober!" line.

ouch, that sucks big time!
Hopefully you'll be ready to rock and roll for the S100!

Same thing happened to me 2 weeks prior to the transrockies about 2 years ago. Was on the road bike just riding along trying to avoid some old fella on the bike path. Took the grass. Hit a pot hole the wrong way. Real stupid fall. Busted my thumb.
No transrockies that year. I was going to do it with my cast, but my partner wouldn't let me.
Heck, Yah just need your front brake. XT and XTR are fantastic for the shift/brake combo!
I still rode my ride with the busted thumb. Even went swimming with the cast on. That just feels so good! Gets rid of the dead skin! Hopefully it is fiberglass?

I've busted my left arm biking when I was 13. Someone dared me to head down a hill. So, I did it with one hand. Stupid move. Fun though going round and round as I hit the jump at the end of the hill!

At least you have that temporary tatoo you always longed for!!!

Bummer. I had to wear one of those a few years ago. Here's what I learned. There is a reason why Doctor's tell you not to try to itch your skin with sharp objects!!!

Heal up fast!

That is a huge bummer. I had two of those last year at the same time, double bummer. You will be back in the saddle before you know it ripping around like it never happened.

I have found yet another way to slap the ground and separated my shoulder, dislocated my upper arm bone and tore the rotator cuff? sweet, I love downhill racing. Do you know of the brand or name of the brace that Tim d had for his shoulder? come on down and we can have a gimp party. between the 3 of us, we are a thrice pod.
