    Hmm, That Looked More Painful Than It Actually Was ...

    Yes it hurts, yes dumping your chin into your chest makes everything hurt a little less (can someone explain why - like seriously, this is real), but when you're not on closed roads, um keep your chin up.

    I ride because it hurts - it hurts to push your body to the limit of what it's capable of doing but it's a beautiful kind of pain, a rewarding kind of pain, a fulfilling kind of pain.

    That's why you shouldn't ride on the wrong side of the road.

    Our dear friends across the pond do seem to sit on the right side of the car but drive on the wrong side of the road whilst we over here in North America tend to sit on the wrong side of the car and drive on the right side of the road. What's left of this world....

    Looks like he cut his face and his shifters were all askew, but he still gets rolling like nothing was wrong. lol

    I'm Sorry, but slow it down and look at his face right before he hits the car! Right at the moment he realizes CAR!! He must have been running down the woman that came by after he crashed! She did look FAST!

    Either that car was made out of marshmallow, or that is the best front wheel ever.

    Seriously... head on into a bumper at probably 15-17mph and not even out of true

    ^Sweet Lynskey. It's a nice, clean build. I have the same stem, too. If those are Deda RHM bars, then we're cockpit buddies. That sounds dirtier than it should.

    Poor bugger, a few years ago I was at the top of the little mountain bump we have here in Montreal. Ride up it often for the climb--I was stopped and two bikes came by slowly and the woman in back did exactly like this guy, but into a large square cement block used probably for the "top of the mountain" signage from the recent gp of Montreal or whatever it's called. Right in front of me she rode right into the damn thing, we're talking a yard cube of cement, flipped over it but was OK. What was not OK was her head tube that connected solidly with the corner and had some good splits in it. I hopefully convinced them not to ride a cf frame in that condition, but I had to go so who knows what they did.

    Pretty embarrassing, not to mention fricken dangerous.

    Say what you will about "weak" carbon frames and forks, but they handled this head on very well indeed. You could be pretty damm sure that a metal frame or fork would have bent.

    This doesn't mean I'm ready to move from metal tubing to CF yet, but it won't be about CF being too weak to hold up.

    Was the car not parked in the lane? I feel like the car is in an unsafe location for anyone. Even other motorists. Is this correct?

    It's not like it's on the inside of a blind curve, or over the crest of a hill. Drivers and cyclists have to be aware of what's going on about them, after all a car could be in the lane changing a flat (just one example).

    This accident is 100% the result of the cyclist riding with his head down and oblivious to what's ahead. He's lucky that he hit a car, not a truck whose high bumper might have the bike slide underneath so he hit it with his body, or a pedestrian.

    In any case, if you want to blame the car, that's what every driver would like to say when he hits a bicyclist riding slowly in a traffic lane. IMO- the ONLY excuse for hitting something in front of you is if it suddenly appeared out of nowhere, like a meteorite.

    Johnny Knoxville should be giving him a call for a spot in his next movie.
