    Ouch! At 20 mph wrecking a bike, you're pretty lucky if that is the extent of your injuries. I hope you heal up soon.

    We no longer bounce. Several years ago I received a phone call from the local emergency room. A friend had crashed his mountain bike and broken his collarbone. His biggest complaint - the fact that he would not be able to compete in the seniors level race that week end. He was in the lead for points but was unable to compete the rest of the season.

    Not too bad at all, but being on blood thinners, it looked a lot worse than it was. Had a red sock on left foot and a white on the right..29" bike, but I still have to be careful because my toes will contact the pavement and even the front tire if I don't watch what I'm doing.

    29" bike? Kind of reminds me of Roy Lee Mercer "well how big a boy are ya?" - but really, how tall are you that your feet can drag on a bike that big?
