Today’s edition of Best Gore Members Rock is brought to you by Best Gore member @col-hanslanda, who injured his leg on teeth of a bicycle chainring:
It is my first post on BG as I’m a new member, but that doesn’t mean I’m new. I’ve been visiting best gore since before Mark got snagged by the idiots running Canada.
These pictures are of my calf after my foot slipped off my mountain bike pedals and my calf came in contact with my large crank ring. (The spiky ring that your chain moves on)
Needless to say it was bleeding quite heavily, but what had me worried is all the grease/oil and dirt that was shoved deep within the wounds. I rushed home and soaked q-tips in isopropyl alcohol and shoved the q-tips in each wound to clean it out. Only after this point you remembered to take photos hence the lack of blood and gore.
Thanks everyone at BG for keeping the site Alive. You guys had me concerned.
Thanks for sharing the pics and the story with us, @col-hanslanda. I think just about anyone who rode bicycles would have injured themselves on these wheels to some extent. They’re mean little toothy monsters:
