Welcome to the club; you’ve just been pedal-bitten!
Yeah, that hurts pretty bad. Methinks that problem will slowly disappear as you get better. My last really good, long pedal bite was back in january of 2007, but I haven’t been trials/muni riding as aggressively since then.
They sting pretty bad but I always thought the long scrapes and mangled skin looked really cool… but that’s kind of sick I’m sure somebody understands!
Oh I understand…all the cuts make me look manly for sure.
The cuts have never hurt at all for me…the only time it hurts is when I’ve hit my shin…then the bruise hurts…a lot. But the cuts kill all the nerves and it doesn’t hurt for me at least. I hit got my shin the day after christmas this year and I deffenitly should have gotten stitches but I really prefer the manly scar.
You might want to invest in either plastic pedals or some shin guards…or both.
