    Well, on the bright side, these injuries will heal. The jury's still out on weather I can go fix the problems in my lower spine and nerves when I was injured last year.

    Brings back memories of my accident. Didn't have any broken bones tho. . .but it was pretty scary for me at the time.

    Hope the thumb heals soon.

    Yeah, KC does suck for bike riding

    Quick, china! Now is your time to sue and get rich!

    ;) Really, though, I'm deeply sorry about your accident. :( Hope you get well soon. It must be hard to type with a broken thumb.... It's amazing how much even a broken pinkie can ruin your day-to-day activities.

    That sucks, man. I had a bicycle accident a couple of months ago, too. Totally taco-ed the wheel, in fact, the front wheel is like a figure-8 from a certain angle. Kinda neat, actually. But, bad thing was, I had to CARRY the bike 5 miles back. A hard, sudden fall. No injuries, though - I attribute that to the coral calcium. I felt like the asphalt would have broken before I did. Check that stuff out. I'd get the Bob Barefoot coral calcium (higher quality), from Okinawa - higher trace mineral content, which makes all the difference for absorption, which is the key. Don't get ripped off buy the generic stuff.

    Ouch!

    The worst bike stack that I have witnessed was in my first mountain bike race in the Blue mountains west of Sydney.
    I was riding about 2/3 pack in a tight pack on slippery gravel when one guy fell off and got riden over the top of with the most gorriest looking gravel rash I have ever seen.
    He then got back on his bike and kept going and finished the race but in a lot of pain.

    The same guy a month later on the same circuit, we were tearing down a hill, when we came to a poorly marked right hand turn, he was in front of me and didn't see the turn and went full speed into a barbed wire fence. OUCH!

    Needless to say that he stuck with being a roadie and only used his MTB bike for work (We were both Couriers at that time, but that's another thread).

    (aged 7) I broke my arm walking up a slide the wrong way and someone came down- ouch! aged (10-11) I was playing football avec my brother who at the time was playing for Bradford City reserves when he took a shot on the half volley and like the idiot that i am i tried to save it! Had to have it manipulated back into place without anaesthetic! At 14 i broke my angle playing rugby at school- (the fist lesson as well). Didn't have to play it for the rest of the term which was good as i hated it!

    Good luck for a speedy recovery, China. I had a bad bike accident when I was a kid too. Sucks, but you'll heal fast!

    Cool fun to be had picking bits of scab off for weeks ;)


    As a kid I imagined getting a total body scab that would come off like plate armour :crazyeye:
