I need to jump back in here. Blogging that is. I originally started blogging to maintain a diary of sorts, of primarily bicycle travels. Then I was reading other bloggers and other bloggers were reading me. So with no further ado, I shall just jump back in,
Look at these bad boys, meet Big Fat Larry and his little brother Nate. Put 3 dirty M centuries on these two boys in the last 4 days. Nate in back with the big knobs and 4.8" Larry guiding the way in front. My opinion they will make a great pair for snow grinding. I climbed some dirt hills this weekend, that I think a better rider would not have with an Endo, or Larry in the rear.
I have been dealing with my shoulder flaring up again. In April I had shots of cortisone in both shoulders and it was like a miracle cure, until a bike crash a few months ago when my front tire kicked left from a rut, and I stuck out my right arm to break my fall. Ever since then it has been slowly getting worse. Probably some tendonitis with mayhaps some rotator cuff injury. Another shot of cortisone last week, and then I did this, snapped my Crank arm climbing a hill, threw me forward putting a lot of strain on right shoulder, dang that hurt, arm was numb for awhile. I am going to have to think about what level of risk, and icy snow rides. Doc says I should try to avoid surgery, recovery will be longer off the bike then I care to think about.
However my LBS installed free of charge a complete new assembly. Wonderful. Is why I believe in supporting your LBS instead of some warehouse in Chihuahua, Mexico owned by some royal family in Al-Kharj, Saudi Arabia. Free replacement says it all for my 2007 crank.
