News: Ouch, My Back! June 29th, 2009

I have a history of back problems. It’s a long story but I got run over by a car about 15 years ago and haven’t been the same since. I won’t go into detail about how it happened but let me just say don’t stand in front of a car when doing repair work while the guy helping tries to start it.

As a result of my little accident I have a bulging disc at L4 and L5 and every now and then I do something just the wrong way and I seize the area up. When this happens its very painful for me to transfer from sitting position to a standing position. Straightening out is incredibly painful. So as a consequence I don’t get to have any fun and my work pace is very slow.

I’ll continue to work because the problem could persist for weeks so if you call I may miss the phone so be sure to leave a message. If I’m not right by it I probably won’t even try to answer it until I start feeling better. For those of you who are having a frame made, DON”T WORRY! the quality won’t suffer. I’m very comfortable when sitting at the welding bench and working. I’m just slower than normal.

This week I’ll be finishing up Matt S’s ti road frame. Shipping Harold V’s Ti road bike, shipping Brian B’s steel road bike and starting Andreas M’s Columbus XCr frame and maybe shipping Joe S’s bike as well. It’s going to be a fun week and I should have lots a pictures to post as things progress.
