On two wheels - greenstick wrist, thumb, 4 collarbones, countless ribs. My shoulders are a full inch narrower (and more aero). There are only several hairs left on my knees.

I never even raced bicycles although I've broken several ribs on them too, mc's at the dragstrip were good for ribs, a scapula and a pelvis.

Once someone cuts the derailleur hanger off the dropout I salivate knowing I'm getting a heavy discount on an easily fixed issue.


Send me your tired, your poor, your castrated frames yearning to have a derailleur hanging off it...
