    Chainring Rash! :(

    Second time in 3 months.



    The wider scrapes are scars from about 3 months ago. The narrower one happened on my way home tonight riding down Broadway Blvd (For those of you who know KCMO). I had to make a really fast stop going downhill at about 30 MPH. I was on my front-squishy, spongy-knobby tire equipped Sorrento. Between the speed, the downhill grade, and the fast stop, I ended up doing a 4-5 second stoppie. It was only a few inches or maybe a foot off the ground, I leaned back to keep it from turning into an endo but didn't want to let up on the brake for fear of not stopping in time.

    When I stopped, though, I planted my right foot before the bike actually came all the way down, and it bit the back of my calf.

    I are the n00b.

    Owie! I hope it doesn't get infected. That looks pretty bad.

    Yikes, that has got to hurt. I saw this pic of this one downhill biker who fell off his bike and his arm landed on the front rotor and gave him a nice burn.

    Wasn't there an issue in a bike rag recently that sported a picture of someone submitting to ritual branding... where the brander was their brake rotor after a long downhill?
