    Feel like i'm taking crazy pills

    This broken wrist is making me go nuts. I get the first cast off Thursday, then have another one for 6 more weeks.
    I WANT TO RIDE!!!!


    All this time off im taking to build a new bike, going to start ordering new parts for a Rune or Nomad build end of the month.

    No it's not. According to my fancy new phone, it's 105. That's sweater weather.

    I am going stir crazy too. Doc says i have 5-6 months before getting back on the trails... Sounds like a prison sentence. Drinking beer is my mtn biking replacement for now. At least I am good at that.....................

    I'm on week 12 after fracturing my tibia on April 2nd. Was finally able to road ride outside last week, don't care if its 120 degrees...I'm riding! Crutches for 7 weeks can make you go mad. Hang in there! You will be up and running in no time.
    Bender to AZDog: I'm not the best person to give advice on not riding!

    Dude take it easy, don't rush, but start now. Get some putty and start with your grip...
    But go easy. You muscle will have to be rebuilt and I know it's not fun, but...

    Broke the shoulder socket when it dislocated on Pass Mtn ride Memorial Day. I think the feature is called Scarface. Anyway, going under the knife in the coming weeks to screw/pin the bones back together . Time and then physical therapy before I can peddle. Just gonna take some time. Can't wait to get back out there!

    Yea broke it like week before Memorial day at PMP. I was in Europe for the last month though so that took away some of the boredom. I was planning to bike in Spain/France but ended up just drinking more
    You don't have a bike??? You are free to borrow my ****, though the Stans has been sitting for over a month, so it prolly needs to be cleaned out.

    I broke my right wrist last year, was back in the gym the day I got it off, took about 2 weeks to get full use back, kept dropping things.
    These things suck

    Some things never change.
    I need some new rotors too, bent them all to hell and they rub pretty bad, even after "fixing" them.
