Had a bad mountain biking accident > 12 months ago, mostly healed now, but the thing that is still bothering is that I destroyed the radial head in my elbow and I can't straighten it out anymore, stops with about 40degree left to go.
I was on a large frame mountain bike it was borderline too large for me, but was OK prior to the accident, it is really bad for me to ride now, instant pain in my shoulder and elbow due to the way the weight is distributing itself with my bung arm. Rode my wife's mountain bike which is a medium and it is OK.
>Should I get fitted up with a custom/aftermarket on my current bike?
>buy a smaller frame and transplant all the equipment (it is deore SLX)?
>Will a suspension front fork go straight over to the new frame or will it mess up the geometry?
>Just give up, sell the bike and buy a medium frame?

1993ish Bridgestone MB-2, picked up on craigslist for $100 a few years ago. Changed the stem to Nitto Dirt Drop, the bars to On One Mary Bars, the saddle to Brooks, the peddles to something, added a Tubus rack and now have a nice touring bike.
