Default Kingpin

Broke mine first time I attempted speed skating in quads since my return. I planted my front wheels, got part way through my stride and it snapped above the jam nut which had loosened on me during the session. I fell forward in what felt like slow motion and my trucks/wheels went sailing down the floor behind me. Scary, but no injury. I crouched as best I could and went down on my right side. Sore for a couple days, but nothing bruised except my ego.

Best of luck in healing up quick.
