Won't be riding...or doing much actually for a while after this crash...

A (painful) inconvenience rather than a disaster.

Holy crapballs- that’s a number and a half!
It was pretty evident when I suddenly had 4 ortho docs around me within 20 mins of the x ray.
love that splint. your hand was probably a little floppy...:(
I will always have a tube taped to my frame from now on.

@Oddjob - nah, went down a narrow rock chute and went off line a bit - enough to clip my bars, smashing my hand and scraping my forearm against the rock. My thumb is actually more sore than my arm. It's all swollen and bruised, but nothing broken at least. Can't ride again until that recovers.

Jeez @BT180 - it looked alot better on the small screen of my phone. Nice close up job by the ED.

BTW - how much space for your handlebars is there in that chute? Looks like a 50/50 bet from the video.

It's not too bad. My bars are 780mm, but the run down the chute is so janky, it's easy to get offline. But yeah, def not much to work with.

@Cardy George - did they decide to put him on the table an clean it out? I got a trip to the operating theatre and a 3 day stay in hospital after i filled mine with dirt and gravel. Was not popular with the family as i had gone out for a quick ride before christmas shopping on the 18th December.
