Ooooh!! Bloomin’ eck JB!!! What happened there?
audition for the invisible man
I reckon the front wheel locked up.
I got that bit smart ass but I was after details! What did you hit and how fast were you going for that much damage!?
I've no idea, no recollection of 10 mins before to 12 hrs after.
I only know that when i got it back, the front mudguard was broken and jammed against the wheel. Oh, and my umbrella was bent.
Wow, poor you! I have nothing to complain about!!!! Glad you made it through that chap, much have been terrible for your family.
Isn’t it strange how your mind blanks memories before a serious incident!! This happens to people all the time.
Ouch! Never heard it called an umbrella before.
Nasty that - glad your ok .
Ive had it happen with a broken mech hanger - with the derallieur flicking into the spokes.
Fortunately i was just starting a short but steep climb ( although it was pitch black in the middle of the dales ) and the rapid stop just ended up with me falling over in a heap .
I got the rear wheel free and untangled and turned around - i just had the momentum to coast back to the pub we had just left .
While the lads carried on - it took another 4 pints until the Mrs managed to find me and carry out a rescue ..............
Sorry that happened, speedy recovery.
Jeez! Somehow I missed this. I hope you're recovering mate.
It's not at all cool that no one stopped to check you were okay
How are you now Ali?
Thanks guys! I’m mostly back on action again. Amazing how quickly it’s healing but I still can’t lift heavy things or put and weight on my elbow yet.
The good news is that I can once again sit at a desk comfortably with my forearms down - “yay” I hear the 9 people waiting on dating letters say
