Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

watching the video again, i really dont see what that rider was trying to do. there's no gap there. was s/he just so distracted by the manifest or whatnot that s/he didn't even realize what they were doing?

And do not reach with your left hand for something on your right hand side. It turns your head and shoulders and you can not see where you are going.

I'm not watching the clip but I assume it's of the female rider who grabs the manifest then eats it in that intersectiob but gets up and the bike it totalled. It's during an alleycat -- I've seen Pedal a few times now.

Yup, that was Katie. I was at that checkpoint when it happened. Not exactly sure what she was thinking, but she blasted right through the light into second ave traffic at full speed. And honestly, she got really lucky. Aside from a couple bruises she wasn't hurt, the bike took the impact. The frame was pretty trashed, though I think she might have got it straightened out later. She was riding a loaner later that day, one tough little girl...
