Introductions - Hey from Vancouver
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Pretty rookie at this point. Just getting back on a bike after years of back pain. I have been reading the forums for quite a while, but just signed up yesterday.
I live in the West End of Van.
I just switched to clipless and had the misfortune of breaking my elbow.
I have a Cannondale Synapse. (circe 2006ish).
I am also a pending PoliSci grad. Later.

OH no!! Did you break your elbow from falling off of the bike? :( Hope you get better soon, that sounds painful.
I hope that doesn't discourage you. As for the back pain, sometimes cycling helps a lot with that. Loosens up the muscles...make sure you get your core strength worked on too, that always helps. Take it easy, okay?
Oh and...welcome to Bike Forums!
Haha yes. I was just getting comfy with the clipless, maybe too comfy, and I tried to leave both feet clipped in and lean up against a post at a stop. I didn't pan out. The fracture seems fairly minor. Mostly frustrating that I can't ride right now. A few more days I hope.
I agree, it can only be helping my back. Thanks for the welcome.
