I am pretty sure racing cars was cheaper and safer for you.

You just can't stop breaking stuff, first your car now your bones.
Hope you recover quickly

That truly sucks. Sorry to see that Trey. Your GF kit size? I know you need cash. I could trade you for my old shoulder puller harness thing for busted collarbones.

Interesting, didn't think of that. That would be a good time to replace everything.

I did a PIVOT demo day about the time Trey busted his clavicle. First off...holy shitznit I didn't know it was possible for a full suspension bike to ride like on air over very rough rooted single track, and have no issue putting down effortless power. (Mach 4). Wow. Rep said the build was $5500 though. It better ride like magic. But I was laughing with glee for the 30 min I had on it. Do want.

I also rode their CX bike with 6800. It shifts like my wife's new tiagra...very vague, spongy. You don't get the obvious clicks/snaps my 5700's have. I guess I don't enjoy 'good' shifting bikes.

Please help me with a rim tape recommendation. On my lightbicycle carbon rims I have been using french cotton rim tape. It is sliding along the rim like the photo below (not my pic, but similar issue). After my failures I paid the LBS to do it, which held for the past 2 weeks. After disassembly I found the same issue. The bead has to be in the drop center in order for me to get the tire on the wheel and I think the bead is grabbing the tape and pulling it away from the spoke holes as the tire inflates, causing a puncture eventually. I think I got the cotton rim tape to stick pretty well using brake cleaner instead of IPA, spending a lot of time trying to get as much of the bead into the groove at a low PSI, and using unusual lubricants on the tape/tube/tire. But checking the tape afterwards requires me separating the bead from the groove, and starting the process over. I'm worried that the tape has moved, and I'll pop the tire and crash and look like Trey. My wife will leave me and I will have no more money.

What to you all use? I think I need something THIN, these cotton tapes are pretty thick. Searches show people using gorilla glue tape (only for MTN bikes/lower pressure??) or kapton tape, which to me seems like it may work. Trey's old CX bike rims have hard plastic liners. What is ideal?

IME, velox works far better and more reliably than anything else. Looks like you just need wider tape and it shouldn't move around at all. I use the kind with the green letters for most road rims. I believe it's 16mm wide.

+1

Rim tape, whether tubeless or for tubes needs to cover the entire rim from bead to bead. Otherwise it'll shift back and forth as you experienced. Tube type, I tend to use Velox or some of the high strength nylon strips like Zipp's. For tubeless, Either Stan's style kapton tape or the old standby, gorilla tape. Gorilla tape is particularly useful if your tire doesn't fit tight. An extra lap or two of tape will effectively increase the drop center and bead diameter to help eliminate burping.

Hustler, hope you have a speedy recovery.The ride on the Emonda is just awesome. I took off the R2 tires that came with it (man were they thick) and installed a spare set of gp4000s2 in a 23c on the stock rims while my other ones get reworked for 11 speed. The ride even on the 23s is amazing, I was aiming for potholes and riding over cracked pavement like it was nothing, and the handling is much snappier than the old bike. Taking her out on a nice 40-50 mile ride tomorrow and expecting to have a great time. I did a short 13 miler this morning and had zero pains of any kind after, no cramps, slightly better average speed, but the thing I noticed most is that I was not as tired as I usually am after a ride on a clammy morning.No regrets about going to the Emonda, and the 6800 is really really nice, the triple downshift feature which my old 5700 didn’t have is quite useful too.

Yowch. I did mine in '97.

Make god damn sure that the thing heals straight. If that means surgery, do it. If it means wearing some weird contraption, do that. When I broke mine, the doc said "just wear this basic sling for two months." It healed crooked, pointing outwards at the site of the fracture. Took years before I could comfortably wear a backpack or even a 3 point seatbelt on the passenger's side of a car.

Joe is right, the clavicle can be a particularly difficult bone to get to heal back properly. It has lots of stresses on it that don't matter when it's in one piece but that can make healing straight a challenge.

I can't emphasize this point enough.

If you get to the 1 month checkup and they say it's healing at an angle, have them re-break the damn thing and start over. If the doc won't do it, do it yourself and then find a different doc.

The clavicle is a bone that you really don't appreciate until it ain't right, and then it can significantly **** up your quality of life. I've broken a lot of bones over the years, and the right clavicle, 20 years later, is on par with the right fifth metacarpal and proximal phalanx (finger bones) which I shattered the **** out of two years ago, requiring surgery and six pins to re-assemble. In fact, the clavicle probably still bothers me more to this day in terms of chronic discomfort.

I'm another rider that dislocated my shoulder in a crash. Doctor suggested sling, healed crooked. Sleep, riding, working at a desk all uncomfortable at times because of it. See a specialist and tell them it has to heal straight.

I busted my collarbone in my early teens ragdolling my CR80, reused the brace my dad had from busting his. Healed with a nice point sticking up, looked cool for many years before it smoothed out. I went to the doctor at my mom's insistence about a month afterwards and the doc basically said it was too late/risky to rebreak and align. My right shoulder is visibly lower than the other and twisted somewhat but other than that, never gave me problems really. But with your health insurance, I'd get it fixed proper. Drink a lot of booze, slice it open, hose clamp it.

Damn Trey!! I was amazed by your Facebook post and had to fill my wife in on your storied past. Lol.

My wife and I got hit by a car about 10 weeks ago. Car pulled out in front of us while turning left across our path, hit us head on. Two lane, flat country road. Miles of line-of-sight. 58yr old dad with a 17yr old daughter in the passenger seat. Low speed, maybe 10-12mph closing. Both of us up on the hood and into the oncoming lane. I landed on her bike, mostly cuts and scrapes other than a sprained wrist. She broke her right clavicle as well and had a lot worse road rash than me. She's almost back to normal range of motion, but hasn't done a push up or stepped over her bike yet. I'm worried she won't ever ride on the road again.

The first Ortho doc at the ER said things like "fracture" and "minor". We were shocked when we saw the X-ray.




Second opinion still said "no surgery". So we'll see. :(

This was discussed yesterday, choosing no surgery for an ultimately stronger bone until the next break.

It is. But I would call it a sport rather than a hobby.

If you go up far enough you will see xrays of my acitabulum (hip socket). In a wheelchair for 6 weeks. That is when I swore off recreational road riding and decided to turbo the Miata.

16 months later, I'm buying a new bike, and back on the road.
