    It only took 4 days

    It's official. I've gone crazy, or at least stir crazy.

    It's been four days since I was sentenced to what is effectively bed rest for the fracture. I'm going nuts and spending way too much time surfing eBay, Craigslist, and PBK.

    A person can only sleep so much.

    I'm sorry, I missed the whole story. What did you fracture? Give the gory details.

    Well, the sad, sad tale's beginnings can be found here "I Think the Universe was Trying to tell me Something" It's intertwined with fellow forum member Jtgyk's adventures on the day before the 4th of July when we had a ride planned.

    The continuinig intertwined saga The Saga Continues...

    And pretty much a summary of the last couple of weeks I am so tired of this

    Short, and less humorous, version is I managed to fracture my right femur under my knee cap, and do some soft tissue damage.

    Heh, I'm eyeballing a Fetish frame set and fork on the local Craigslist and a Veloce group on Ribblecycles.UK. The only saving me is the possible looming co-pay for surgery.......... The Fetish frameset and fork are very very tempting though

    So.... have you built the perfect Cross Bike in your head yet, or some other project?

    The cross bike is sadly on the back burner. Bad knees and the proper terrain and use of the bike are not the best match. That doesn't mean I don't still want one, but it would have to act like a road bike for quite some time
