    New question here. Is this a Wildlife Action Shot?

    Hey vercingetorix,

    Why is there a monkey on your back? Errrrr, scratch that question……I’m not sure I want to know the answer. Somehow the idea of a guy on a bicycle dressed like Mad Max with a monkey on his back in a rock filled wilderness under a monstrous blue sky doesn’t need an explanation. In fact it defies an explanation.

    Enjoy,

    Michael
    If you can't keep the rubber side down......at least smile for the camera!

    He is a Gibbon. He helps me climb. He wasn't much help on the ledge at Porcupine Rim.

    Forgive me, as I don't want to come out offensive, but what does that picture show? Osteoporosis? I don't really understand it.

    Osteoporosis? I hope not. It is my broken collarbone.

    The second time I did Slickrock I was wearing lowers. By then I had found the ideal climbing position and had no problems with the course except for getting out of the sand trap near the beginning. The Deviant helmet did a great job and was destroyed like my collarbone on Porcupine. My LBS is checking with Specialized to see if there is a discount replacement program. I didn't take any pictures of it. I wish Specialized had a carbon fiber collarbone I could buy.

    The monkey is fine. He is still laughing at me.

    I was told the replacement would be at 50% if i smashed my deviant. I smashed it off the ground today but its still intact so not trying hard enough! I love my pads after todays demo of how not to jump.

    Bear in mind helmets are normally only designed for one substantial impact, so whether visibly damaged or not you should get it checked/replaced if it was a serious knock!
