    Oh no. You'll never be able to ride again. Best sell your bike and kit to me for 50p and take up snakes and ladders.........carefully:evil:

    depends how hard you bite the bars when you're really trying!
    i went out shortly after having a tooth out. it was winter and freezing cold so i kept a buff over my mouth just to keep it warm.

    Wisdom tooth? All depends on how long you want to be spitting blood for really, but to be honest, there's a lot of worse things you can do than have a ride on your bike. Just take care not to disturb it.
