Hi, thanks to the ppls that helped with sending me to bike shops accross the state.
I finally picked it up on friday arvo. I ended up with an Orbera Aqua (Enol frame but Udana spec).
I was so eager to go and run in the tyres try out the new gear and see what it is like to use cycling shoes instead of sandshoes. Also see how this compairs to the old Trek. Well 10 years theres a lot of differance. no going back now.
Well living out north, i decided i'll go for my quick Mawson Lakes Loop. Then head out Saturday morning for a beach run, Semi to Glenelg.
Well this didnt happen and wont happen. i'm a little lucky but, very SORE. I was almost home, i stopped at my last set of Traffic Lights, went to take off but as not used to the shoe and clips i didnt have enough speed. I tried and tried but i just couldnt do this. I then lost balance and then went over on my right hand side, hitting the ground hard. I then got up and rode off around the corner. Noticed the lever was bent, easily straightend but scratched. i was lucky the old lady seen me and stopped. I got up quickly. I rode home, but hitting a small hill on the way in.
I thought is was just a little scratch on my Knee but, with in a few hrs it was painfull. By 3am i was in pain, i knew i wasnt going to have a nice ride, or any ride. The weather being perfect and all. My leg now being sore, but the knee still killing me. I think i will have to miss a sunday ride too. I now have a joke with the Wife. The old bike is in better shap than the new one. I'll just have to practice and learn how to take off. The LBS did tell me that u should always unclip the right hand due to the danger falling in to traffic.
Well i will now have to have a weeks rest and get back out next weekend. My neighbour says i must have done something bad, Karma has cought up with you. Just hope i havent damaged my knee. Its Dam sore, big bruse on the inside of leg where the frame hit me too.
