so i was hit by a bus on my ride to work this morning (can't go into details until things get sorted out legally).
the good news: i'm alive.
the bad news: my trusty old 1996 Raleigh M-80 MTB commuter is totaled
i had this bike for 15 years, and as some of you may know, i LOVED the crap out of it. it's just a thing, and things can be replaced; i'm overjoyed to be alive, but still, the loss of my oldest and toughest steed makes me a little sad. no matter how much money i spend, i will never be able to truly replace it.
R.I.P. good friend:
original MTB form
with summer slicks and rigid fork after hybrid conversion
Uploaded with ImageShack.us
with winter studs and bull horns
i hope bicycles get to go to heaven too.
