Man, sorry to hear it. Thatís just plain bad luck. Hopefully you get a good outcome from the ortho.

I donít think itís reason to give up on bikes? Sure, sell the Beta while you recover. I guess I donít surf, so donít have another passion to fall back on (well I do, but too old to play rugby anymore).

Maybe a trials bike would be good for you?

Shit luck for sure.

I agree with selling the Beta... so you can buy a new Sherco once your hamstring is healed

Sounds like you need a little DYI project for home to keep you distracted. Injury is crap, but try find something constructive to fill in the time. Youíll find it easier to forget about the recovery time and (hopefully) come out with some new skills.

think im going to do some high performance surf coaching while a can't walk/work. there are a few home maintenance jobs that need doing but dont think ill get to those without decent mobility. ill still be able to train core and upper body which is good too
