dang little rubber dust cover on the brake cable hung when I pulled the break lever didn't know what it was so I squeezed the lever harder and when it come loose it instantly locked my front brake and the rest was a quick trip straight to the ground...... oh yeah it was fun...LOL!
Sorry to hear it Map, make sure you keep those scrapes clean. Glad you'll only be walking funny for a week or so, it doesn't take much to be a lot worse.
I've noticed the rubber dust covers on my cruiser's brakes don't like to stay put, maybe I'll take a look at getting rid of them.
