    I didn't get off quite as easy. Fractured Acetabular means at least a month of recovery for me.
    Aww, man. So sorry about the fracture.

    Pretty good analogy, if you ask me. Sorry to hear about the fracture, and hope it heals quickly.

    Good thing you weren't riding geared - the injury might have been multiplied.



    Seriously I'm sorry to hear that and hope you heal well.

    Yeah, 48 x 17 is enough! Imagine the injury level if I had been on a 52X26....OVER 9000!
