OK, Colville Connection, 42km ride. 7km in first downhill, monster pothole hidden in grass. Result - slight alignment problem, and have to hold whiskey tumblers in my left hand for a few days....

Anyone got stanchions and bridge for my dead (sniff) 35's??

phew - thanks guys! I thought it was unrecoverable. I'll get out hte polishing cloth tomorrow.

Now if you could just address the multiple sprains in my right hand - some skin lotion perhaps?

i saw something similar hanging up in halfords for sale.
the salesman said it'll be fine, nothing wrong with it. :lol:

hope you get well soon.
