Title: NCBIKE Photos
Post by: apexprophoto on August 07, 2018, 08:10:00 PM
Hey All
If you didn't know I had a gnarly crash at NCBIKE the other weekend, I jacked my shoulder up pretty good (my right one).  This weekend you guys will be covered but turn around times my be longer than normal.  I have an MRI Tomorrow and follow up Thursday to determine if surgery will be needed.  Please be patient as my work flow is being modified to accommodate my current situation.

If you have questions please shoot me an email apexprophoto@gmail.com Because of my day job and being on LEAVE (possibly paid) you may get a response from an assistant and not me directly.

check out my video... it hurts to watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4V645yLQROA&feature=youtu.be

so does this mean you will be using your phone because holding that large lens of yours will be more of a challenge?  :tiphat:

seriously though keep healing so you can get back on the track with us as well.

Jesus dude sort of been woolgathering over my hand.
Josh what the heck happened? That looked like locked front brake. Man or Mechanical?

Either way heal up. Keep us posted.
Shoulders suck. Each a little different.
Mine they are going to let it go as PT has worked. ( complete dislo with a follow up separation injury. Original damage 34 years ago. Follow up 13 years ago.)

Diane they had her heal her separation and PT. Good to go for 9 years then had a nasty fall and required the blade. Keep in mind they literally had her heal up and do PT etc before they cut as they want everything around it in good shape.

Point is get assessed then get opinions. Do the PT when they tell ya. Again sorry for the off.

oh no, that's gonna leave a mark.  did your trigger finger get happy and (click) squeeze a little too much brake?

glad you are mostly okay, and hope you heal up quick.

I think I had a mechanical,  the force required to halt the front like that at 90mph would have required some force. My foot did slip off the left peg and I believe I inadvertently engaged the brake but I think something else mechanical led to the lock up.  I did notice after the fact there was an aftermarket lever that didnt seem to engage the plunger properly.

Needless to say I am waiting on an MRI right now and follow tomorrow for next steps.  I played around with my gear last night to see if I can manage to shoot with limited shoulder mobility and I can.  It wont be easy but I can use the extra $ right now. These Drs are thirsty for their $$

It was by far the worst pain I'd ever experienced and it took 3 different physicians to realize it was dislocated.  So walking around with it dislocated for 3 days sucked

Understand about funds. Thanks to my ridiculous deductible my hand surgery was 100% out of pocket except for my meds!!!!!!!!!!!
Heal up man. It looked as if you went to course correct with a little brake and you got all brake not a little.

Would like a pick of master if you can send.

Sure I'll get some tonight.   I have a new brembo that will be going on :)
The bike will be far cheaper than me

Parts for the bike always cheaper

Which is why I shake my head sometime when I see a $2200 exhaust and a $75 helmet at tech. 🤯
