I've had better days. Nothing disastrous but losing my house / car keys for two hours first thing has pretty much set the tone for the day :lol:

How is Friday 13th going for you?

Badly.

Start wasn't great, and it's just gone downhill since...

Good so far, and bad as well.

Good, packaged a few bits to send off, got a good deal on wheels and brakes.

Bad, the sodding courier won't pick up until Monday and a set of forks I am selling remain unsold.

Pah, an unlucky number.

If nothing else, stacks of slasher and shrieker movies have shown us, there is real truth and power behind the superstition of the number 13 and the day of Friday...




Ish.

Just great.

Strained a few muscles in my back when I got off the bike this morning, and the resulting pain caused me to lose control over my legs for a second. That was enough to put me on the floor

Right now, whenever I make a wrong move, it's like they're thrusting a sword in there and my legs just give up.

It's going to take a week or so before I can properly walk again, and the doctor has banned me (for life, no less) from riding any bike that has the handlebar below the saddle. So my choice of old bikes will be severely limited. Certainly no more Sbikes.

Interesting that as I've always found the more upright the riding position the less time I can spend on the bike before I get back ache. A lower front end mean that I can rest more of my upper body weight on my arms and shoulders rather than supporting it with my lower back.

Oh and I hadn't even noticed it was Friday the 13th until I saw this thread.
