    There is no acceptable reason for scratching up NEW parts. This is a case of careless or inexperienced mechanics. Also, a $500 bike is certainly not junk. :rolleyes:

    And what if the person has nothing on their record? Not pursuing it means their record stays as clean as the...

    There may be some variance in vehicle code wording, but as far as I understand ALL states require the overtaking vehicle to only do so in a safe manner. It would be ludicrous not to.

    This is why...

    What? You have to drive into the ditch with oncoming cars? Really?



    The time spent waiting behind a cyclist(s) is extremely relevant to a reasonable person.

    For me it's the principle. People shouldn't be allowed off scot free for serious stuff like this.

    There's no way I wouldn't press charges and seek compensation in a case like this. My lawyer would already be on it.

    Get out to an open lot and practice some bike handling skills. The "rock dodge" is particularly helpful for getting around stuff at the last second. Set up a paper cup or something and go for it.
