This. THIS! Longer commentary doesn't seem fitting. Going riding.

You aren't the first person to suggest that! I worked on the Polygon UR team for about 9 months and Cous Cous was always keen for this , but we never got round to it! Might be a question for Funn to see if the bar's integrity will hold up! Spacial awareness is another consideration as I really have no idea where my arm is (I hate tight gaps in trees now) , and the r/h side bar has saved me a few times by hitting the tree before my shoulder would have whacked it, always brings a dark humour little laugh out when that happens!

Hey, Tom Wheeler made me an incredible exo skeleton brace - full carbon, custom tuned Fox shock, rose joints and more. It is quite incredible. I used it for a short period and I was definitely able to do more, but the pain was unbearable. BPI injuries can vary depending on how many nerves get avulsed. I did all 5 meaning that the only muscle holding my shoulder up is my trap. Some people have a functioning pec, lat or deltoid, but I don't. When I used the brace the shock couldn't go anywhere, so was going through my ribs and eventually pulled my 5th rib off the cartalige. It winded me a bit, ha! Knowing Tom, he could modify it to make it work really well, I just need to get over the psychological hurdle :)

Hey. Before my crash I rallyed historic cars and always wondered if a bias bake box could be employed on a bike with one lever. However I do like having two brae levers. Tom Wheeler from NotBroken just sent me some great tech yesterday to aid with braking which I'm really hoping will help. Tom Bannister is the best rider I've ever seen with one arm, and he's recommends it so if I can get half as good as him that'll be great!

Hey Matt. Great questions, and yes, I do! My g/f is a physiotherpist and pilates instructor so this plays a huge part is trying to stop the cramps and keep the fascia loose. Foam roll, acunpuncture, myofascial release are three must do's That said, I tore a knee cartilage last year and this was a result of paralyse muscle chains shortening, pulling on my hip, tightening up my leg muscles and putting more pressure on my knee. I've also had a life threatning acture compartment syndrome before I did my arm (10 weeks in hospital, 6 ops, 5 days of blood transfusions, big skin graft...) which doesn't help, haha! So it is a hugely complex injury - clinically much worse than an amputation (which is bad in itself) but management is key. My job is as a cinemtographer and photographer, so carrying a huge pack if shooting bikes, using heavy camera's such as the alexa and so on can also be hard work but you just gotta keep going! :)

Don't come with I9, usually DT Swiss or Newmann wheels. Granted I'm sponsored by them so this may come across as horse shit, but I think my Swoop 8.0 at 2300 euro's is a bike I'd buy (or could realistically afford), but I am a tight northerner!

Was a beauty of a find. Had a ton of fun searching for that and writing the lines for 110, 148 etc..!

Not sure why it hasn't uploaded in 1080p, most of it was shot in 4k Slog 3. I'll ask PB why it hasn't converted.
