Cannondale Scalpel 2

$1900 CAD
I bought this sweet XC feather-light racer, and a few months later I destroyed my shoulder and haven't been able to ride on trails since. I fought long and hard the harsh truth, but this bike has got to go because I can pretty much only on the roads now - and even thinking of racing again is a pipe dream. So here is the basic goods: http://www.cannondale.com/nam_en/2012-scalpel-370 And here are the mods/upgrades I made: Easton EC70 carbon handle bar Easton EC70 carbon seat post SRAM SRAM X9 rear (it came with the X0, but it was the last gen which didn't have the clutch, so I upgraded to the X9 new gen which comes with the roller bearing clutch) Crank Bros Egg Beater 3 pedals Continental RaceKing 2.4 RaceSport (rear) and Continental MountainKing RaceSport 2.4 (front) - yes, the 2.4s fit just right and ride awesome. Specialized Phenom saddle If you set-it up tubeless, this baby will scale only at 22 pounds! - lighter if you put on thinner tires. You also get: Brand new still in box set of Racing Ralph (2.3 I think, but I should double check). The original saddle The original bar and stem If you are thinking of offering a trade: I will only consider a small or extra-small carbon cyclocross or road bike of similar value and condition.

ProVisions 6 - Injuries Justified
No labrum tear? Super lucky if that is the case. Just curious, how did your doctor confirm that without an MRI? Almost all dislocations are associated with labrum tears. It is just the way the humerous ball slips out of the glenoid, and hit the rim, it tears apart the labrum in the process. In any case, glad to hear you are seeking the proper care. Best of luck with the recovery. Maybe you don't need any surgery after all. That would be ideal, of course. In my own case, I haven't had a dislocation recurrence yet, and my surgeon said I don't to have a surgery just yet, but she said that if I ever dislocate it again, I have bought myself a surgery. My MRI is coming up this month, and keeping fingers crossed that I am lucky and the labrum tear is not major. The inject a die in my shoulder before the MRI to better see the cartilage. By the way, do you have a shoulder "DISLOCATION" or a "SEPARATION"? Just wondering, because they are two different beasts.

ProVisions 6 - Injuries Justified
@ MrDuck Hey bro, I too dislocated my shoulder in the spring of this year, but I also did a major fracture of the whole humerus as well. I have been using this, which adds some comfort and protection: http://www.btosports.com/p/EVSSB04 BUT, and I know this is not what you want to hear, you NEED surgery on that shoulder - you have some major instability. Every time you displocate, and with the whole instability you have now, you are doing murder to the glenoid cartilage. Cartilage damage is permanent, so surgery won't cure that, but it will get your shoulder stable and stop ongoing tearing. What happens if you don't? 5, 10, or 15 years down the road you are looking at some major osteoarthritis, guaranteed. If you think unstable shoulder is not fun, try living with osteoarthritis of the whole freaking shoulder. The chronic pain will seriously degrade your quality of life. Do what the doctors say! You will thank them later. The surgery will most likely be arthroscopic, where they go in and try to reattach the torn labrum, or tighten anything else that might be lose in there. Meanwhile: STOP FREAKING DISLOCATING IT!!!!!!!

@bobsten you figure Cypress is "cross country"? Bro, you should leave Washington one weekend and head North here to see it yourself to believe it. The elite of the elite freeriders will tell you Cypress is the real deal.

It is called mountain biking. XC, Enduro, DH, All-mountain are just bullshit jargon made up by marketing departments to sell you more bikes, or for posers trying to fit a superficial lifestyle image. Keep it real. Bike on a trail = mountain biking.
