On the way home Tuesday night, some guy hit me and I flew like Superman (according to eye witness.) into a Corn Field. After a night in ER I have this to report. Broken Sternum, two cracked Vertebrae and a whole lot of pain. Fortunately the cop got the guy and now I have 5-6 weeks off of work because of my accident. To make a long story short, the bike is totaled as well as some of my gear. Can anyone recommend a good winter cycling jacket as well as a commuter bike similar to a touring bike, aluminum frame preferably?
