Not you too ??!!??
What happened ?



Got taken out in a crit race nearly 8 weeks ago starting Physio now, may still require surgery on my radius if it's not healing.
I missed your injury, what and how?

We need a 'share your injury/recovery' sub section.

I crashed T teh Mackay Velodrome about a year ago, and landed a nice displaced mid-shaft left clavicle fracture, which I had plated, for a quick and excellent recovery. I had the plate removed a couple of months ago, as metal directly under the skin is uncomfortable, and metal does not flex with bone, leading to more discomfort when I do heavier exercise like push-ups, burpees or over head lifts.
It's pretty much done and dusted now, andmy strength is returning to normal. I had to take it easy for 6 weeks after removal, as the scr holes make for easy re-fracture. Back to doing 100 push-ups in a session without any discomfort.

This should be mandatory for Le Grand Tour. If you spend more than a certain percentage (say 90%) of all the climbs sucking the wheel of your domestique or rivals during a stage, you must ride on the second seat of this bike on the following stage.

Which rider do you think would earn it first? My money would be on Contador.

I want a comfortable bike fit on all my bikes so I can ride without having to constantly worry about my comfort.
oh and a nice cheap carbon bike (chinese is good) that I can race on and not risk my beautiful new bike

actually, that'd work well for me - luke runs the same size frame as me
luke
you want - race geometry
- ultegra di2, 11 speed
hydro/mech disc is up to you
rims without a brake surface
135mm rear spacing
capable of running 25c marathon plus tyres (allowing for 28mm should cover it)
let me know when you're sick of it and you can keep it at my place
