Hope you feel better soon. I know this won't make you feel any better right now, but your accident could have been much much worse.

Btw, noticed the Hollowgrams looked like they came out ok?

The Evo can be replaced- you can't. Count your blessings that it could have been much worse. All the best to you and I wish you a speedy recovery.

I was broadsided by a car exactly 3 months ago on my new S5, and life's already back to normal. Hope it goes faster for you!

Thanks for the best wishes....
You guys are right at the end of the day the bike can be replaced.
and as my wife keeps telling me I was really lucky.

Worse of the injuries is a flair up of an old slip disc in my neck... but ive been there before and know that if I rest up it will be all good in a few months (hopefully)

Anyone had any dealings with crash replacements through cannondale, do they offer framesets at a reduce price?
Found out today bike was not covered under my insurance policy.... but I think 80% of the running gear will live again.. so just need to man up and sort out a new frameset?

anyone had simular experiences?

Wow, I really cringed when I read that.

I came off bike my bike at 30mph as the chain came off on the front when I was out of the saddle about a month ago and that really hurt - just wanted to lie on the road waiting for the pain to go away... then as I was sitting on the side of the road waiting for a lift I saw a train of a bus followed by 2-3 cars go by at around 40-50mph... had they been behind me at the time, it could have been bad. So even though bike was pretty wrecked all I had was some road rash and a sprained little finger.

Just glad to see you alive to be honest after this! Really wish you a good recovery, and maybe try to avoid taking blind corners in a similar way! :P

Hmmm. Looks familiar (except for the clinchers and the fact that your headtube is still attached). Get well.
