lol ok one time on my 4300 the right shifters cable broke, which sucked, so I had to take the short way home with no sidewalk. So i wait in this drve way to some place and see if there are any cars comming. Nope. lol once i get on the road this car comes from behind the hill and another car behind me on the other lane. lol omg the car kept honking at me and i almost caused an accident XD! o well lol y cant there be sidewalks on every road:)
Maybe it's a touch of "arrogant road biker" (everyone has run into at least one of them, not literally :p) in me, but I'm upset by drivers that can't share the road with an attentive cyclist. At least in my area, riding a bicycle on the sidewalk is illegal, all cyclists are instructed to follow "slow vehicle laws" as much as possible (is speeding possible in a "slow vehicle"? I've probably done that once or twice, heh).
That said, I don't know exactly how your embarrassing mishap played out :).

in a fund raising trail ride/race i was in, there were about 50 other cyclists and we were all still pretty close together coz it was the first km. Both my rear derailleur pulleys came out and i stacked (i was pedalling out of saddle pretty hard). Yeah, that was pretty embarassing (DAMN S.I.S. COMPONENTRY!)
PS, just for the ego thing i gotta state that i now ride x.7 not SIS.

Ya I hit a tough section in the trail, my saddle had broken and then impaled me slightly in a not so comfortable place. To top it off I was showing a girl friend of my mine the trail and how to ride.
