    Crash.

    XT rear derailleur, juicy 7, saddle, and potentially rear derailleur hanger (steel frame so the whole frame) are dead.

    Worst part is it was my friend who did it. So he's hurt, and it was on my bike.

    Sigh.

    I mean, I had to rush home and get the car and take him to the hospital because of a potentially broken leg.

    Mind you, in the car he ate all of my KFC.

    Sorry to hear. The most important thing is that road bike of yours wasn't damaged.

    Oh yeah. I was riding that, luckily I was in the road and he was on the sidewalk. It was the fault of a fallen power line that someone so cleverly looped around the sidewalk. Caught his (my) bar.

    They aren't. There are issues though like he had no lights or helmet. I had all of the above. The adrenaline cooled and now the damage is sinking in. I'm really pissed.

    Lucky it wasn't a live wire. He would have a perm right now. Please wish him well for me. Got any pics of the bike?

    I know! I was thinking that. I ride to work and from work on that route every day and make sure I avoid that wire. I'll go take some pics.

    Got word of the injuries. My friend has a broken foot, sprained thumb joint, and had to get his chin stitched. He dragged his chin on the ground
    Can't tell but there are chunks of the "X" missing and the allen bolt that holds on the derailleur to the frame is all messed up. Hanger is very bent

    That's all missing, bent rail

    This one hurts.. all silver is torn up. Even the anodized red bit . Ripped hose.

    But on the other hand.. new tape. Also picked up some nice fenders for $5. Guy threw in a free nice helmet.

    I don't want to not use the bike. I love this thing. Also, yeah, for the first time I'm happy it is steel.

    That's ok, I had a crash while training today for the upcoming season @ Trexlertown.

    Had some kid dash right out in front of me while I was accelerating in a sprint which caused me to go off the road @ 30mph and have the front sink into the mud and sent me OTB.

    You race track? Cool - I'd love to get up there some time and at least see it even if I don't ride.

    Yep. Dan swings the other way. Hehe!

    Thanks for posting the pics.

    Sorry about the bike and I hope your friend heals up quickly. Remind him that it's not a good idea to use his chin to stop.

    Will do. I also tell him to wear a helmet but he won't.

    Just spoke to him again: RIGHT after they finished the cast they came in and said it needs to come off because he needs surgery. He shattered two of the bones in his foot.

    Oh no!! Shattered?? That's crazy!

    You know what? My friend would never ride with a helmet and I told him that I won't be riding with him anymore.

    Yeah, I know, crazy. I told his dad that he wasn't wearing a helmet. Apparently he told his dad that he was. I mean, he's a good friend of mine and I try to get him to wear one. Maybe he will now.

    NOOO! Not the KFC!

    Glad your friend is going to be okay. Sounds like that foot might be hurting him for a while.

    The bike can be fixed. As for the battle scars it has, well, they just prove that the bike is enjoyed.

    Update: Two surgeries. He will have one wednesday where they will put metal rods that will stick out of his skin in, and will remain there for 6 weeks. Nasty.

    Then in 6 weeks, another surgery to remove them. Should be on the bike in 3 - 4 months.
