    Post Crash Repair

    Two questions for you.

    1. I sewed up my knicks after my crash this weekend. Am I the only one? 50kmh so a fair bit of sewing, but the results look okay. Jersey is shredded though.
    2. The inner foam on the helmet has some fine cracks. Anyone ride a cracked inner shell?
    Fear of losing is a racers biggest limiter. Attack, write the story of the race.

    Former is fine, but maybe use them only for training.

    The latter is a stupid idea...

    Don't use that helmet any more unless you need something to wear to the LBS to buy a new one because you don't have a car, and there are no taxis in your town.

    1) I have sewn up several bibs--trim the shredded areas first and then sew them up from the inside. Do a good job and you will hardly notice.

    2) Get a new helmet. No ifs, ands or buts.

    Most manufacturer's have a crash replacement policy... look them up on their web site.. you send in the old helmet.. get a new one for like $40.00
    NEVER EVER ride a helmet that has been in a crash... unless you doing what WR says...

    I've sewn up damaged or worn kit but usually they become spares or crap weather racing kit.
    Helmet hits the ground in a crash it gets replaced...
