Well, I ate it today. I haven't done that for a while.
Perfect day in Scottsdale, 15 miles into my ride, warmed up and ready to fly.
I'm taking a downhill corner at about 25 mph when I grind the inside pedal, pedal pops off, wooble wooble, not going to make it, tuck and roll.
After I pull myself and my bike out of the intersection, I surveyed the damage:
Me: Should have partial movement back in my elbow in a year or two.
Cell phone: Dead, need a new one anyway.
Sunglasses: Dead, had survived many midlife crisis crashes, on borrowed time.
Now, the important stuff: The Pinarello:
All in all, came out reasonably well, but in need of repair.
The old Cinelli bars took the majority of the impact just below the outward center of the drops, causing the end to flare out slightly, but significantly. Are these bars toast or is there a way to squeeze or pound them back into shape?
The next point of impact (that is bike, not body) was on the Suntour RD. It must have bounced at that point, but didn't skid. As a result both the DR and the DR hanger have enough of a bend inward to make the DR inoperable.
I'm sure this kind of thing can be fixed. Is this something I can do myself or do I need to seek out a professional?
