Talk to me about fingernails...
After trapping my finger nail between two cupboard doors whilst simultaneous pulling as hard as I seemingly could have done, I seem to have a (left ring) fingernail which quite happily pulls away from the nail bed.
I've got it strapped up tight with climbing tape in the hope it will magically reattach itself :-(
Anyone ridden without a finger nail?

Yeah, I smacked a big toe nail off after clipping a rock whilst pedalling through a rock garden (I will never ride a full suspension bike again). It took a few months for the toe to grow through, but it din't cause me any trouble it was just a pain getting socks on and off.
What I'm worried about it the fact being my ring finger I use that finger to hold on whilst braking as i'm a two finger braker :-/
I've got a 24hour solo coming up and it's about the last thing I could need :-(

I was about to suggest a finger amputation to ease the pain, but then I read that you use that finger for braking...
I can only repeat Dalesman's comment - you'll die.

I had also been tea-total for approaching 5 days...the second bottle of red is helping with the throbbing!

I think I'll let it do it's own thing until Bontrager and if it's still playing up then I'll just use the glue!

Go to your Dr and see if they'll whip it off, a floppy one is much worse than none at all.

I did that with my toe...they told me to keep it on naturally till the one underneath pushed it off.
I'm going to look under the tape after breakfast :-/

It's only hair FFS!
you manage fine without that.

Man up and pull it off, as previously said a floppy one is no use to anyone.

*wonders whether to message Mrs William HB and suggest the use of pliers whilst WHB sleeps*
