    Dude, that sucks :( . We chatted with Cory as he was leaving. What part of your arm did you break? If you need the number an awesome ortho arm doctor let me know. I'm riding in the 8th week of recovering from a broken humorus.

    I told you not to look at that tree, didn't I?!? That's a drag - heal fast.

    On a semi-related note, it sure was nice 'n' tacky down there today!:D

    KNine, you seem to get hurt everytime you ride! Maybe you should take up another sport (like knitting) cause biking is not for you! Sorry, you got hurt again!

    I know its Ti and all, but "x-ray" hardware always looks like "Home Depot" hardware.

    I saw the doctor today. He had me do a CT scan this afternoon. So this is what i know right now. I am down for 3 months. If the bone is displace 5mm or less i will be ok. If it is 5mm-10mm it will be a judgement call and if it is 1cm or more out. I will have to have surgery. I will know more next Monday.

    Dude, you will get better. I know 3 months sounds like a really long time right now, but after the first 6 weeks your body starts healing super fast :) At least the weather is crappy!

    Get in line....I think it's normal to let yourself go a little. You get some what depressed and you can't be as active. It's totally easier to lay on the couch and eat :thumb:

    20 gal keg? dang! I got the Blur 4x for the same reason, I can ride *cough* XC *cough* w/ it too.

    Went out w/ this doctor woman and was telling her about my injury/surgery and all the breaks this year to fellow riders...she just gave me this look and well haven't heard from her since. I think she thinks we're a crazy lot.
