Look mom, I'm famous!
Yes, those stupid pedals were replaced when the frame was ordered. I haven't had issues like that since then.
And I wiped out this weekend taking the bypass around OMG at Ridgeline. On that bypass, there are goalpost trees at the bottom, and the kick was off the right crossbar in my case. Boyette is extremely dry right now, so there is a LOT of loose sand. My front tire slipped a little and that's all it took for me to bounce off the right side. As soon as I saw it, I turned to take the shot on the helmet.
Had to sit out the rest of the day as a precaution, and my neck is stiff today. Other than that, I am fine.
Always wear a helmet kids!
