    I have a Bellroy ‘Very Protective’ in black – it suits my needs perfectly and it does seem waterproof – although /bellroy claim ‘Water Resistant’ – pleasing to see an ‘underclaim’ 🙂
    Wan’t cheap (£48 IIRC) but wearing really well and so compact!

    I remember sneezing the day after my scaphoid / hip graft op, I thought I’d been shot in the side.

    I had the laser and magnetic treatment at Brian Simpson’s place in Ipswich after my op as well.

    How did that go Ming?

    lasers! hurrah for them.

    Will testify that the Belroy kit is nice and if treated from time to time (as leather should be) it should be a product for life.

    My initial diagnosis was a sprain so I FUBAR’ed it badly by riding and working with it. I only got it herbert screwed and grafted 4 months later and by then was desperate.

    After the op visited Brian and his team (following recommendations from a supermoto rider) for a treatment of laser and ultrasound first (I think) followed by 3 laser and magnetic therapy sessions. Did it fix it any quicker? I don’t know but by that point I just wanted to cover as many bases as possible.

    Take it SLOWLY, don’t over do it, if the wrist complains back off. Once you get the OK try using climbing putty and a powerball a bit later ONCE AGAIN don’t overdo it. 4 months after the op I was riding carefully and about 3 months after that was back to full speed. I’ve got 95% range of motion back and 90% strength.

    I rode with an allsports dynamics wrist brace until jedi sorted my head out.

    Did a Giro gilet also arrive? I want to try one for size.

    £169 for a Pertex windproof!! Blimey.

    Hi Dave, I fractured my scaphoid and was off the bike for 4 days. The doctor said I needed to keep it moving, so I filed down my cast so I could grip the bars and went dirt jumping (small ones) and street riding by the weekend. It was a bit sore during this time but I just got on with it. Trail riding was fine though. It seems ok now.

    mini pump group-test on the way? 🙂
