    out 6 weeks?!?

    went down hard, slammed knee, swelled up, needed draining. thumb fractured, six weeks to heal. sounds too long for something like that.

    ironically my new TLD D2 just came in the mail.
    and i got gobs of new stuff coming in...damn!

    three weeks sounds more like it...

    d@mn! sorry to hear about your injuries. I know how you feel. I just broke my index finger a few weeks ago. the weather is just starting to get nice, it's time to ride not sit inside healing up.

    don't go too crazy looking at your new parts, though. give yourself time to heal up properly.

    I am seriously thinking about getting some padding now...

    $15 and the knee thing could have been avoided.... http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/121...hin-Guards.htm

    I think I am gonna make that investment... as well as elbow pads...

    yeah luckily i was wearing elbowpads....i just hate wearing the knee armor...now i hate myself for hating !

    i would avoid those Standard shins....you might be able to see that the knee portion of the pad cannot be secured to the leg, and just flopps around....check reviews...i think it's more for long pants....

    Get well soon, but don't rush your recovery. Listen to your body.
    When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
    Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
    Till I get to the bottom and I see you again...

    lol.....

    Thanks for the advice... I was curious about that.. they looked like they would be uncomfortable.

    I hate wearing padding at all, but I don't want an injury either...

    Sorry about the thumb man. Let it heal fully with time. I broke mine a while back and even with the cast off it hurt like hell biking for about 6 mths. after. IMO, the roach FR knee/shin pads are the most comfortable that I have tried. It doesn't move and feels like you're not wearing them at all. Enjoy the biking videos whilst you recover.

    actually, i use the tomcats:
    http://www.sixsixone.com/catalog.asp...da6ecc&pl=BIKE

    they didn't have the kyle strait ones when i pulled trigger. i can only assume that the performance is similar, but that the kylestrait ones have side padding in addition.
    the tomcats fit snug, but broke in after some use. they're pretty flexable and comfortable, and they stay in place. only problem is there's no shin padding. they're not bad for pedalling, i use them for AMXXXC riding.

    thanks man, it was a fracture, doc didn't think it needed a cast, just immobilization. borderline though...

    he tells me that 70% of all body movement includes the movement of the thumb. amazing how little i can do without it...

    maybe i'll visit the firestone classic this w/e, my photo trigger finger still works!

    misctwo sorry to hear, hope you heal quickly. Did you only manage to fracture the thumb or did you tear any ligaments too? I managed to tear the ligaments in my right thumb last year Nov and it still give me crap and hurts some what even now, partially because I was in a rush to get back riding and only really gave it 3 weeks off riding. So make sure and let it heal properly and get some physio if you need to get the full range of motion back or you'll have a naggin injury for life (I'm hoping that mine won't be a lifetime nagger once I go get a bit of physio now to help it recover strength)
    One day your life will flash before your eyes, will it be worth watching??

    hey man, thanks...fractured the thumb and sprained the lower joint, which hurts a LOT more. yeah thumbs are important but i consider myself lucky as i've not busted my head or broken anything bigger .......yet....i guess 6 weeks is not so bad
