    BTW, I never wear the lycra or whatever it is. Levi's shorts and an orange t-shirt. Once out on the trail I ripped my shin open deep and wide. Bleeding profusely. I would have bled out if I hadn't had a belt on with my levis. I was able to use it to tourniquet the leg and peddle out to the car and get medical attention. Happened on a weekday morning when it was unlikely that anyone would be along.

    Here are some of the guys in the area that wear lycra .........

    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    The time I went out riding without the lycra, my taint got so chafed it bled after about 10 miles. If I'd kept riding without the bibshorts, I would've bled out!

    Very true. The only time I've sat on my AR5 without a chamois was while doing adjustments. I couldn't imagine doing any distance without padded shorts.


    Plus, chamois cream (taint butter) can be as luxurious as shaving cream. My personal favorite is DZNUTS! Gotta love a little menthol in your nethers

    This makes me sad!
    I just got my new Giant Advanced Pro 0 one month before tearing my bicep. At least I got 3-400 miles on it first.
    Now all my bike are staring at me like I'm the biggest idiot for hurting myself.
    Oh well, two more months to go then getting back onto the saddle.
    It's a dog eat dog world and I have on milk bone underwear.

    Yeah, I've got a microscopic little Prologo saddle (I have tried to find the exact model I have, but they make six trillion different ones). And as for chamois lube, I just go with Chamois Butt'r.

    I realize now I've been forgetting the most important part of this thread...

    I love that bike! The paper thin seat stays just get me every time. Giant really makes some nice bikes.

    One thing to consider, you could purchase an indoor trainer to mount to the rear wheel. That way you won't need to use your injured arm and you could strengthen your legs for when you go outdoor again.

    I'm forced to ride one most of late fall/winter due to lack of daylight or snow. I'm not going to lie, it's miserable riding on a trainer, but it definitely keeps your fitness up.

    Prologo makes some nice saddles. You're seeing a lot of the pro peloton adopting them.

    I forgot a bike picture as well. Nobody wants to see my scrawny butt in spandex!

    I use rollers. And that's what I'll use this winter.
    Orthopedist said no can do anything that puts more than a glass of water of pressure on my arm until he says so! I tore it up pretty bad. He said the next surgery if I don't follow instructions would be a real biggie! I'm in the healthcare field so I know after 4 MRIs in the last two months he ain't lying. 1 more MRI to get cleared next week, fingers crossed! But, if he says no, I won't be riding until Jan period.
