Only problem was I was entering a small tunnel and whent straight into the concrete wall and then was thrown out onto the path. No broken bones but a serious hematoma on my left elbow.
Oooooo, ouch! Sorry to hear that! Do you have elbo pads?!
I was wearing full sleeve upper body armor, but all that padding and plastic didn't help with the impact to my collar bone. I wonder if there is body armor that has ridged sholder pads or something that can help protect the collar bone from seeing the full force of a shoulder impact?!
I just had surgury on it last night. They put in a plate and screws. They said it was so bad they had to put in a big plate so it will have to be removed once the bone heals.
I need more practice!

We'll, we can't meet up for a ride for a while though...I broke my collar bone into 3 pieces on thursday. A ~3" dia tree branch was at an angle in my path and it just kicked my front tire out from under me. SOAB! I'm down for the count I guess.
Nice batt box, do you have a break to bend it with?
That's no good... Something like a month to heal?
A member bent the box for me. That made things easy.
I need to get some more batts, I've been using 80-100Wh/Mi...
They said ~2 months before I can do normal stuff carefully. I guess it's a bad break.
Oh, cool. people on ES can be so nice, like Thud who helped me by doing the machining on my drive train components and making the two rear axle to kart sprocket adaptors I needed at a fair price!
I've got some thin ~1/16 3031 alu so it will be easy to bend for my batt box which will hold 20 of the 4s 5000mah hardcase packs in a 16s5p config. I'll post a pic of my sketchup using the frame and batt models you guys posted up here. Thanks for the models guys!!
This pic shows a 203mm line at the bottom bracket location to represent the 203mm BB cartridge (from sickbikeparts) that is on the bike to allow clearence for the the crank from the wide swing arm, motor and lipos. I like the peddles futher apart like this too!
80-100wh/mi?! Wow, is that 'cause you ride off road a lot? How much capacity do you have now?
I've got a question for you ZOM, I've got in my 13AWG wire to rewind my motor with, do you think you might be able to give me a (second
) hand in doing the rewind? If you have the time of coarse!
