I stripped the foot studs trying to service my bougie fork (to my credit, the instructions were translated from Italian, and said hold the 19mm nut while turning the 4mm stud, and meant the opposite). Fork is now at the dealer getting fixed from my ugga-dugga hands. To their credit, they said they'd do it under warranty.

Maybe this stuff *might* help?
(hopefully better that synvisc/ cock’s comb extract)


The bone at the bottom of the glenoid broke off. My right arm hangs an inch lower than the left.

To be honest, I broke that shit 27 years ago, only bothered to go to the doctor after my 5th dislocation. Had a lot more pain this time as the cartilage at the top of the humerous got gouged pretty bad. I don't thing a lack of cartilage is much of an issue as there is a rather sizable gap between the two surfaces.

I thought about that the other day riding LLF as a matter of fact. Ducked my head under a downed tree and remembered not to try to take a bite out of my stem.

Where did that happen?
Fells, mid reservoir trail.
Pisgah (not that Pisgah) in Northboro/Berlin. I’m pretty sure that’s the trail he’s on. Not a bad spot. That trail is a blast.
I used to ride there when working in Marlborough. Chunky place!
