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)

Update on Torrin Arnold / Lucklust

http://www.marinij.com/marin/ci_3566663

Per District Attorney, Case dropped because medical evidence showed Arnold faking blindness all along.

Guess bikeForums can come back to bite you. I got an update PM awhile ago saying that his sight was slowly coming back. Guess that was faked too?

And this is why people involved in accidents should keep their mouths shut.

haha... Torrin Danger Arnold... "Danger's my middle name baby" I don't know how he could experience road rage when everynight he gets to go out and use that line at the bar. I don't really know enough about the case to comment any furthur than that.

if any of this is true, i do not see how this would instantly drop a criminal case. the fact that Arrigoni tried to kill Lucklust using his vehicle as a deadly weapon remains.

That's journalism, baby.

i think the argument is that, if arnold lies about something so huge as going blind, that his honor can't really be trusted for anything else.

I want to write a letter to the truck driver explaining that all cyclists aren't ******s like that guy.
It's a big blow against how cyclists are percieved on the road.

i see what you mean, but how about the honor of the witnesses? i don't think the criminal charge was "caused blindess," the charge was "felony hit-and-run."

i just hope that at the civil proceedings, torins' attrns can use idiots' exuberance in his criminal exoneration to show that he is really not feeling any remoarse what- so -ever in his running over a person on a bicycle, because this in the end is what you did... regardless... prick

what a jerk, and to the tool(s) posting... i hope our paths cross one day

Every single time there is a newspaper article that can possibly reflect badly on Lucklust, it's always posted here by some "newbie." So I'd say so, yes.

ya it certainly seems to me that "they" (assuming "they" are affiliated with Arrigoni) are trying to convince us that lucklust is a bad person or something
