So im injured from a bike accident. Scrapped the right side of my temple and my right shoulder is in a sling because of the hit i took. Dont worry this is just a minor set back from cycling. Sorry no pics. paramedics came to check me out gave me and my bike a ride home.then gf fixed me up. :)
i'm glad you're all right.
can you say the same about your bike?

no! just one of the spokes came out im going to see if i just need to replace a rim or a spoke. thanks

I am glad you are ok. Crashes are always scary as hell.
What kind of bike is it? I have some spare wheels depending on what you need.

Heal up well and don't rush your injuries! Glad everything is alright.

its a fixed gear frame 27" rims my foot got caught on the front tire i flew forward and in midd air i shifted to the left which made my right shoulder take the full hit. and i scrapped the right side pf my temple to about an inch inside my hair line. the people that saw me fall called 911 they cleaned up my scrapped forehead the best they could before the paramedics arrived. one spoke came out of its place completely from the side thats screwed on to the rim not the hub. so thats enough one hand typing for tonight thanks

I have a couple of front wheels you can choose from. 2 are 700c one is 27 inch.
Let me know
I live in alhambra, but I can bring a wheel out to a ride with my bike trailer.

Im feeling better but my shoulder is still acting up

it takes a long time. I still have shoulder pain when i sleep on my right side, and my crash was over a year ago. Take good care of it. Consider acupuncture or some PT to make sure it heals properly. I regret that I didn't do more when my shoulder was in the healing phase.

thanks I will do that. A lot of people are telling me to do some kind of PT for it.
