Hand Job…

So perhaps not quite what you first thought.  Back in May of ’06 I had a motorcycle accident where I managed to give my left hand a good whack (among other things).  Over the course of the last year its become more and more bothersome.  Typical of many of us, I procrastinated till the very end to get it checked.  I didn’t want to hear bad news, but finally decided I’d rather know what the problem was in case I needed to address it once we are south of the border.

At this point I need to give a shout out to Dr. Mike Lee.  Mike is a hand surgeon at Desert Orthopaedic Center here in Las Vegas.  I first met Mike at our good friend Terry Leavitt’s birthday party last year.  Mike was able to get me in to see him on very little notice.  Turns out it’s just another fun aspect of old age.  It appears to be the onset of arthritis…who would have guessed it.  A shot of good ‘ol cortisone will hopefully see me through (btw……ouch!).

The problem with my hand is exactly why I got the SRAM Attack grip shifters instead of going the traditional MTB (mountain bike) method of thumb shifting.
