So Iíll try and make this a long story short Ė cruising down a country road on my mountain bike going 30mph, went down a big hill about to go up the next, stand up on my bike to start peddling again and I step down with my right foot there was nothing to step on besides the pavement, chain skips off. So it completely throws my balance to the right and I barrel roll the bike with me still hanging on. Bike Damage Ė Front rim is scrapped up a little bit, front tube blown out, chain is all wrapped in the rear derailleur but no damage to the derailleur, few asphalt marks on the seat. Body Damage Ė Minor scrapes and bruises (luckily), feel the right shoulder and everything seems to be fine but it feels weird. Feel the left should and the right should at the same time, hmm collar bone is sticking straight up. Yup separated shoulder, a week later surgery on grade 5 separated shoulder.
Now, 4 months later Doc says I can get back on the bike and ride but no rugged trails. Fixed the tube, checked the front and rear derailleurs all is good, seems to be!
As I ride the bike or spin the wheel while in air the front wheel squeaks. The rubber gasket on the right side as you sit on the bike is spinning with the wheel and squeaking. Iíve taken the wheel off and put it back on, but didnít check the hub tightness. Any idea why this gasket is spinning with the wheel?
Thanks for the help
