    Hello Artoledo

    When you said ACL do you mean Acromio Clavicular Ligaments ?, How did you injuried that way in your first ride man? I am also broke my ACL January the first but I was riding a very thecnical trail we used to ride for fun, this time my front wheel got stuck betwen to rocks and trying tomanage the situation I end up crushing my shoulder.

    ^^^ ouch to both of you! warrior, i'm sure he means anterior cruciate ligamant, aka ACL. it's a stabilizing ligament in the knee.

    artoledo i'm so sorry about your injury. it was your first trail ride? that's rotten luck! i hope you heal fast & i hope you aren't too scared away. how did you wreck?

    Yeah guys its my Anterior Cruciate Ligament. The funny thing is that it was a freak accident. I got of my bike to walk around some mud and when i set my bike down i didnt realize the rear tire was in mud. When i went to push off on the pedal the tire spun out, hyperextending my knee and tearing it up. It was heartbreaking being my first trail and all but i am not discouraged at all. i am ready to get back on my saddle and start riding again. I am going to attempt to ride my bike on Sunday to regain some muscle strength. I am not going to ride hard, just some light riding on some high gears and we will see what happens. If anybody is in the Miami area and wants to ride with me to help me back up, i would appreciate it.
