Don't let a broken finger stop you... I kept riding with a broken pinky finger. Might be different though if you have broken another finger...

Super nice bike though!

Always the little things that hurt though :?
My broken little fingers (yes I broke both of them within a week of each other) hurt more then my broken collar bone...
It's amazing how much you use your fingers, I dislocated my thumb once on my right hand (and I'm right handed, clean thoughts! :lol: ) and it almost rendered me useless!

It's my left index finger, which is a pretty important component in operating the rear brake :D
Hoping to get out on the 11th.
I've just weighed it in comparison to my three rigid retro rides.....and it's the lightest!!

Nice! Had a similar experience with my El Mariachi frame.....first brand new frame I've bought in a long time...you don't need a back brake as long as you've got walls and hedges to soften the stopping!
