    Default Hey I found that tiny piece of cable....

    In my wrist.... This is gonna cost me... sheesh...

    I was working on my bike a few weeks ago and felt something jab my wrist... hmmm... got poked with a piece of cable sticking off of the floor ... well it ain't stuck in there so it must be on the floor somewhere... nope... after a few weeks of getting a tiny sharp pain in my wrist intermittently... I decide i should go to the doctor today... all the cash i saved on used parts and doing my own work will be going to a man with a knife and a fluoroscope. oh well...

    Dude, thats not that deep. If you want I will send you lydacaine and sutures and you can DIY it with a clean razor blade.

    Joking of course...............sort of. :-)

    ha... maybe a big magnet and a razor blade?

    it is deep enough to where we needed an xray to see it :)

    this is one reason why bike shop rates are not too high. I had a friend that was constantly jabbing himself with cables while working on bikes. I haven't done it yet, hopefully I can avoid it.

    Treat it with carbon past and leave it in there. That way, next winter when you're suffering, you can forget about the pain while you wonder if the cable strand is headed toward your heart or brain.

    That looks just like the wire that gave me a flat tire a few weeks ago - it sure does get around :(

    I walk around the house and garage barefoot a little too much. Those effer's hurt.
    Would not have happened if you rode Campy. (repressing a huge guffaw)

    WHAT???? You've contaminated blessed Italian cabling with (shudder) something other than Felco?????

    There will be blood. Oh right, that already happened.

    For your own sake, drop and gimme a knee and repent your sins. Say 5 hail Ernestos and have a nice day.

    Ok. But is it okay if I don't do that in the bike work/studio area. I am a little worried about this happening again so soon...

    Hey wait...didn't I already do instant pennance? Also, I will be making payments too! Or am I paying the wrong folks? Will the docs give me a bro deal? Do they do that for CAT 6 bike wrenches? Is this grounds for a law suit against Park Tools? The wires wouldn't cut easy when I used the tool with my pinkies. Is it defective?

    think of the positive: you're now pre-wired with an antennae for wireless di2!

    You're a pansy.

    Didn't Greg LeMond win the TdF with an ass full of buckshot?

    Yes. I am a pansy. But it has nothing to do with a baby steel sliver in my wrist...

    The doc with the knife just told me to leave it.

    Could cause more harm than good trying to get it out.

    Said if wasn't infected by now (been a few weeks) then most likely won't be.

    So now I have a cool picture.

    I'm going to ride my bike now..

    ta ta...
