Well that was fun... After riding my brand new bike for a total of 320km it's been basically destroyed by a car pulling out infront of me. I was riding down a street at about 40-45km/h when a car came out of a side street and went over the stop line, blocking my path. I hit the brakes hard, but something happened... The front brake might've locked, can't really remember, and I went over the handlebars. After lying on the ground for about 5 seconds I heard the car accelerating and thought they were coming over to help, but after looking up I realised they were driving in the opposite direction. Thanks :mad: Luckily it happened right at the corner of my street so I was able to get home again.
From what I can see, the only things I can salvage from the bike is the frame, forks and possibly rear wheel. Everything else is either bent (front wheel, deraillers), or smashed (computer, lights, etc). I'm covered in grazes too, I don't think I'll be able to ride for at least a few weeks.
I'll probably be going to the police station in the morning to report them... I got their number plate as they were driving away. They probably won't be able to do anything about it though...
Not really much point to this thread, I just wanted to vent somewhere.
