Really sad day today...really sad.
Well guys, I finally got my prosthetic foot yesterday...and as uplifted as my spirit always is about my one and only passion (mountain biking of course) :thumbsup:...has taken it on the chin. THIS STUPID FOOT WEIGHS A TON !!! :madman:
I don't know at this point whether I'll be able to...ride again.
Damn this hurts. :madman:
...I just don't know what to say.
After all the learning i've done.After all the help you guys have given me.After all the priceless moments and all the fun i've had spending time talking with you guys on the forums. After all the help I've given to those in need. and all the parts I've gathered to complete my builds from scratch.
...Yep.after all the obstacles i've overcome, now it's come down to gettig beaten by a stupid disease called diabetes.
I am totally disgusted.
and I feel like i have the right to be.
...But this is to all who have come to know me and tried to help me...
I:thumbsup: WILL:thumbsup: NEVER:thumbsup: GIVE:thumbsup: UP:thumbsup: TRYING:thumbsup:!!!!!!!!
Now I feel better.
Back to the forums.:)

Hey fellas!! Good news!! (maybe?)
I found a website for mtb amputees that told about...Magnetic Cleat pedals!!!
Well, it's worth looking into anyway. Sounds a little crazy right?
...But if they work, hey.
I'll keep everybody updated.
Gonna be a while though...
