Fortunately it's not enough to hold me down. Took a nasty nasty spill yesterday and snapped my right hand pinky finger. Trail was relatively flat to downhill at this point with a slight turn to the left and a rise or a steep hill about 4' high.
There were two ways up this big bump. Right and left. My parter ran up the right and he was looking like he might not make it or slow down at the top so I swung left. Didn't really notice it but the rise or bump or hill or whatever you want to call it went pretty vertical.
So my big new Rockhopper 29 front wheel went vertical and I knew I was going down. Front wheel pretty much stops on a root back wheel is in a little rut. It was my first mountain bike ride clipped into the pedals although I use clips on road bikes and am pretty proficient with them.
Anyway the bike goes up and over with me still clipped in. I not only fell but fell and slid down this thing and ended up with the bike on top of me. I really hit HARD on my upper right front thigh and hip. Somehow or another I broke the bone on my little finger. It's swollen like a little smoked sausage and black and blue like it's cool.
And I'm riding again tomorrow.
For what it's worth it was my maiden voyage on a 29'er and I'm never going back. I'm a 29'er! Great experience.
