    what a bummer. I be glad to watch that new bike for ya while your down. Like when I watched the Spinners database for you. Just think, you have plenty of time to monitor BF for bad threads and schoolwork.

    Get better soon.

    Now you might have to learn to swim... Great for rotator rehab once it's healed enough. That really sucks though.

    Sorry to hear Tom, was it an accident or just regular wear and tear?

    Bum deal. You might want to exchange the Allez for a bent. I would imagine a bent would be much easier to ride with a bum shoulder.

    Tom, could you ride a recumbent without stressing your shoulder? I admit to ignorance here. I've never actually seen a recumbent except in a bike shop, so I don't really know how they are ridden.

    I figure if a recumbent would allow you to continue riding, this would be a great excuse to get one, and you could retain your current level of fitness while experiencing a whole new kind of cycling fun.

    EDIT: Ah, I see Caincando1 mentioned that too, but it didn't hit me that "bent" was short for "recumbent" when I first read it.

    Sorry Tom. I did that in the early Nineties on my MTB, it sucked, plus I got in a fight with this guy and had to fight with my right arm in a sling, so the right side of my mouth got crunched, my right eye was black, (complete with blood in the white part of my eyeball, yum,) and had a gash on the right side of my head. God I was an idiot back then. The painkillers are excellent, though. Just don't mix them with alcohol and get into a fight.

    You seem fairly knowledgeable, can't ride, and meanwhile over in C&V is a guy looking for articles for his website...

    Sorry to hear. I have been down since 8/27 due to emergency hernia surgery. I have until 10/26 at a minimum. Doc said it might be more. I can empathize. Get well soon.

    Sorry to hear it. May the universe grant you a good surgery and full shoulder recovery.

    Maybe something like a Rans crank-forward bike would stress your shoulder less while you heal?
    You can still stand on the pedals and tuck into the wind with the Dynamik/Zenetik style frames, and the double-wall rims are rated to 275 pounds.

    That is unfortunate. Maybe Crazy Lady is willing to get a trailer attachment and tote you around town

    On a positive note, you only had a few months left of good weather. Can you ride your trainer with a bum shoulder?
