Good old Steve Mattson. Good friend of the Zimmerloney's and extra committed bicycle guy. A cornerstone at the Bikerowave (non-profit dedicated to helping get people on and riding their bikes), was helping a lady in distress. Trying to remove a zip tie from her handlebars with a multi-tool. A little slip-up, a shower of blood and 6 hours in the emergency room.
Steve, the lady (Molly, who took these morbidly beautiful photos) and the bike are all fine. He made it to the wedding (we car-pooled) but was unfortunately unable to do any of the riding with us in the beautiful Sonoma country-side.
The lesson - multi-tools are for emergency, roadside repairs. Use real tools at home and whenever possible.
