    I came off my bike today and ive now resulted in the following issues

    1) break lever is bent upwards and (i dont know what its called) but the piece that connects the lever to my back tire seems to be bent too.
    2) my back tire has to now be force spun, i cant just to one pull down on the tire and it spins freely, i have to pull each time the tire needs moving (its as if in locked in first gear and cant spin the wheel freely)... if that makes sense. BTW i can still move up and down gears absolutely fine, its the right side of my bike i've damaged.
    3) my front indicator no loner works, and my back indicator will just stay on the amber light, it wont actually flash anymore.
    4) the rest is just scratches and things i can replace overtime.

    anyone know any tips on how i can fix some of these issues or even then recommend a good place to take my bike to have a it looked over. I live in Calne so anywhere not too far away would be perfect.

    Sorry to hear that but don't feel to disheartened, everyone ends up on their arse at some point, at least your ok and the bike sounds fixable.

    funny enough, i have came off 3 times before... the last one was the worst where i am now left with a scar from a road rash. But i've always gotten back up and carried on riding. Each time ive cried... not from my own injury's, but from the simple fact i've damaged my hobby and effectively my version of a baby.

    Thank you, walked away with a very small road rash but now a very stiff knee and a big bruise is starting to show. Thank you also for the offer, that's really nice of you. I'm going to try and get my bike into a garage I've noticed does MOT's on bikes, which is down the street. if i can get them to sort my major issues out; like my back tire, which i now think that because my back break is damaged, it might have caused my breaks to bind and prevent my wheel from moving freely. If there's things i still need to replace after hopefully getting into the garage, i'll definitely give you a shout if that's okay?.

    It was kind of hurtful that when i did come off, only one lady got out her car to see if i was okay, everyone else stayed in their cars like it was nothing.. And the fact i've posted on here and had such lovely responses, and you offering your assistance, its just so lovely and warming to me. This is why i partly love the biking community... Cant thank everyone enough for the support i get.
