Screw the doctor right? I mean, what does he know

I did that too after I dislocated my finger. "Don't ride your bike for 2 weeks." Yeah right. 2 weeks? Try 14 hours.

Thats right, and hey, my finger is as good as new! Sure the joints a little beefier and the finger is a bit crooked, but it's ok, still works doesn't it?

does what it's intended for... I'm sure the same goes for KonaRider's elbow. It doesn't feel like it's going to fall off so ya might as well go have fun.
