Pal of mine ripped an Assos cycling jacket when we went MTBing once. First ride with it on (irony is it's a roadie jacket). Slipped on ice at roundabout.

F*ck him,  this is all about me  big_smile

I fell off on Thursday too - this time just a fall over while clipped in which was even more embarrassing!  I'd been inching along about to pull out of a T-junction when a van pulled across me without indicating meaning I had to stop but hadn't time to unclick

These things don't REALLY come in threes do they.......?

Unfortunately they do come in 3s......

Stacked it again on more ice yesterday,  front end completely lost and face planted into the tarmac

Ambulance called by someone - smashed up and grazed face,  chipped teeth,  broken bones in hand,  dislocated finger,  kept in 10hrs to watch for signs of concussion. in a cast for Christmas......

Bollocks

Off to the hospital on Friday to see if the fingers' have healed up OK.  One of them is still pretty sore and I'm sure is till dislocated although they say not - I imagine they would know best......

Still minimal movement in two of the fingers,  I'll need some good tips on how to get them moving freely again.......

Re: Cranked Up Really High

A pair of bib-tights I bought off eBay just arrived - ones I bought to replace the Chapeau ones I shredded when I totalled before Christmas

Nalini ones,  very nice and as described - can't have been used more than a handful of times

The pube on the chamois was a bit of an unexpected bonus mind you

Re: Cranked Up Really High

Just had my first bike-related, pedestrian-rage fight.  Shouted a warning at someone crossing in front of me on a red man.  He took exception.  After a short exchange of futile abuse, including being advised I was "a fucking faggot in lycra who thinks he owns the road"  I was invited to get off my bike.  I accepted. 

Following his comedy wild swing, which I ducked after having had a pot of tea, we ended up on the deck.  Me on top as it were. Passer-by intervened and we called it a draw.  Tip for future scraps; take off your helmet before fight commences. The strap gives the cunts something to grab hold of.

Re: Cranked Up Really High

Ha ha, fucks sake you don't need that in a morning or anytime really. I always ignore wankers who shake the fists and stuff.. easier to do in a car though.. you did right letting him throw the first punch though.. in my present condition I think I'd be exhausted and close to death within ten seconds of an on floor grapple

Re: Cranked Up Really High

I get a bit road ragey with anyone on a mobile - either talking, but especially texting. You see them at junctions, eyes lowered, tapping away. Bigger fines, bigger bans. Using the phone for anything at the wheel is unforgivable.
