    The rider of this bike was commuting to work in a dense fog when out of nowhere a Great dane came blasting at full speed. Try as he might to avoid the dog, a massive crash was unavoidable.At this time there is still no info on the riders location.
    Like a circus monkey on a stolen Harley......

    Is it a positive sign that there are no blood stains on the ground?

    Suburbia:
    After second birthday party the b-day kid left the new bike in the driveway.
    Parent, heading to corner store for more wine coolers, backed over the bike with SUV.
    After recovering from panic attack the parent felt victimized and decided that someone should pay for the damage to the new bike and the pain and suffering the child would experience by having the b-day present ruined.
    Parent went back into the house to retrieve digital camera and snaps a few shots for the insurance claim.
    Then posts the pics on Bike Forums in an effort to devise a plausible story for the deposition.

    Enjoy

    What you don't see is behind the camera is a giant 20% grade hill. The kid got up to 40 before the bike just gave out and rolled to the bottom.
    Sunrise saturday,
    I was biking the backroads,
    lost in the moment.

    NEWS FLASH
    Today was to be the first day of the highly anticipated Class Action Lawsuit of the People of California vs. Wal-Mart. What was initially thought to be a lengthy trial to span the next several months was brought to a halt after the Plantiff's attorney skipped his opening statements and got down to the incontrovertible evidence.
    "Your Honor, if it pleases the court I'd like to introduce this photograph, marked as Plaintiffs’ exhibit 1."
    From there it was downhill as the judge instructed the jury not to retire and that no summation was needed. More information to follow....
    In other news, the Wal-Mart corporation today has announced that it will be closing roughly 1300 stores, their reason for doing so is still unknown.

    Shaq loved the training wheels, but found the stem a bit short.

    The little boy stood regarding his $79.99 bicycle for a long moment, his brow furrowed in deep concentration. Finally, with pursed lips, he made up his mind and became resolute. A quick glance to ensure no neighbors were watching, he kicked and kicked and kicked at the front wheel until it snapped from the forks. Leaving the forlorn bike alone on the sidewalk, the boy raced home, only four houses down and dejectedly proclaimed the cute little bike his Mom had bought him broke 'for no good reason at all.'

    "Now, can I get the Schwinn Stingray, Mom?" he inquired with a pout. "It's much sturdier than that sissy-bike!"

    the three-year-old weight weenie crowd soon found that removing axles was not a good place to save a few grams.

    Ivan, are you going to be ready to conquer some Franklin/Fairfield county hills in a couple of weeks? The commute to work sure has been nice this week, no snow or sub 20 temperatures

    Bikeforum's youngest member learned the value of keeping the front wheel up when taking drops to flat. Bandaids cured all the wounds incurred and later attempts on a sturdier ride proved successful.

    You betchya, Reich. Email me, I'm ready to go. I need to burn off a few of those cheese fries you have alluded to. And the weatherman said this week was going to suck!

    it looks like a classic case of "my bike is ruined, can i get a new one, mom?" i think the kid broke it on purpose.

    Too much McDonald's. The kid's weight was too much for the poor little trike. Damn those Happy Meals!
