    Dead man walking

    i flipped my latest build off bike last night and broke my elbow.

    i guess i breathed too much life into "The Bully" and he claimed his first victim to cement his name.

    i will be getting a cast tomorrow. look for my fatback on the block soon. with one side suffering from the dislocation issue and now the other broken its time to back off. i havent ridden my fatback in a year now it will be longer. i am just going to get a moonlander to rat out and cruise to stat connected to my roots.

    Sorry you got hurt during your testride.
    But on the other hand you could consider yourself lucky that you didn't bust your family jewels on the brake/shift levers on your toptube.
    Hope you get back on it real soon though !

    Ahhh...yeah. Everyone always told me how bad they were so I called on my years of disc knowledge and hooked em up. I was rolling at about 5 mph and the rear was locked back then I feathered some front and gave it a panic stop and it chirped the tire and pulled the bars to the disc side, left. Otb.

    It was the first ride on them. People in the muscle bike community don't even use them because they sux. I say they just don't know how to set em up.

    Just wait until I do up a moonlander.

    With one dislocated shoulder clicking and popping and now the other side a broken radial cap needing screws I figure my days of hardcore off roading are done.

    I am glad I was able to spread the word of full time fat bikes. Now I will explore mega fat bikes as safely as I can.

    sucks [email protected] you're hurting that bad.
    but riding on the beach isn't that bad on the shoulders... and yer fatback WOULD be perfect for that.
