What do you do when both your rider and his bike are broken; Again!
That's how my Monday morning went.
Long story...Jeff ran over to Pa for what would be hopefully his last race to qualify for his Pro credentials to be able to race on the national level next season. Racing in the Cat 1 category, he was leading the race with a comfortable margin when a moment of inattention caused him to crash hard in a rock garden, his bike hitting him in the head and knocking him senseless for a brief period. Getting up, his left knee was gashed open and swelling, his right forearm had a large laceration, and he could not use his right hand. He finished the race with one hand on the bar, solidifying his win and his qualifications for next years season. The guys at the finish line badaged him up and told him to go to the hospital. Typical of a mountain bike, there's little health insurance and less common sense, so he and Chip drove the 9 hours home and went to bed.
When he showed up at the shop, I asked if he wanted me to fix his bike or him first ;)
The layout table is good for more than forks and stems...
Now, how bad is the bike? That will be for another day.
