    frakenbike strikes back

    so i built this over yesterday and today


    it was riding alright but the wheel was rubbing the fork a bit
    so i was riding back to my room to fix it when the wheel slipped in the front
    and i went down
    laying my right leg out across the fork...hard
    causing this

    it's a huge freaking hematoma
    the first nurse that looked at was like, thats so big, you definitely broke your femur
    lame
    i'm ok though
    crutches for a few weeks and i'll be riding again

    Jesus. That didn't take you long at all. Good luck on the recovery. Draw some plans while you are laid out.

    That thing just looks like you were asking for trouble. There is not a part on that thing that looks solid...except for your hematoma.

    I wonder what the top speed of that bike could be (after you heal your hematoma of course).

    Two wheels good. Four wheels bad.

    Is that an after picture of the bike?
    Because where the headtube connects to the top tube looks sketchy as hell.

    Damn impressive hematoma. You should post day by day pics of the color changes in it. In a few days it will look like a Hawaiian sunset.

    I'm surprised that top tube didn't go first. The leg injury looks nasty

    Your listed occupation is painter/welder. You should contact NASCAR. They appreciate mad skillz and a death defying attitude.
