I wish the karma thing was real.

I would wish this dumby in their saab suv spontaneously have the transmission fail without any warning or have 4 flats in a single day. The person didn't even bother looking to see if there was anything coming when backing out of the driveway onto the road, which caused me into a skid(fixed gear) at about 35 mph. Destroyed the continental grand prix 4000 that I had on the back of the bike. That tire only was on it's 2nd ride on it.

56 miles into a 60 mile ride, final descent, had a really good average speed going for it. If I wanted to confront the person I couldn't because of a ruined tire which resulted in a flat. Had spare tubes, but no spare tires. It wasn't my first run in with this bozo either, the person used to own a yellow hummer h2, and would always try to run me off the road. If it happens again, I might have an accidental fuel spill that happens to spill onto their front lawn.

Karma is not a one way street... anything in your past that could have brought this on?

Not really, I'm very courteous when on the road and on the trail.

Come on. As a fixed-gear rider, you're expected to casually skid around the offending assbag, either kick in their quarter-panel or punch out their rear window with your U-lock, spew a few choice obscenities at them, take a swig from your beer, and keep riding.


(Glad you're okay. Sucks about the tire. Maybe replace it with something a bit more skid-resistant like a Gatorskin/Armadillo?)

If I wasn't going as fast as I was I would have been able to maneuver around the ******. Instinct was to lock the rear wheel up. I don't even own a bike lock, my fixie doesn't even have bottle cages.

Too bulky, I'm not a weight weenie with the mtb, but I am with my fixed gear.

Well, karma does follow you into your next life...

Anyway, the asshat driver sounds like he likes to bully people around so you should probably plant some empty booze bottles in his car and report an erratic driver swerving all over the road to the police.

Sounds to me that since you have had a deal with him before, he's targeting you. I'd report him, and pronto. Lucky it was the tire only and not your body.

Don't let him get away with this.

Now what have you learned? Yes, brakes are good and at the very least could have saved you a $50 tire.

Nah. Carry a water bottle filled with Zip-Strip Restoration Remover... Stuff will take off 30 layers of lead-based paint in one application. Imagine what it can do to an automotive finish.
