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)

open season

I am declaring open season for yelling obscenities at NYC cab #3L47 after the sob ran into me while running the light at the crosswalk to the Wburg bridge. 12:30am Saturday ( I was on the moonlight Central Park ride - heading home). Thanks to the cop who declared "I am busy you aren't hurt" too.

He was busy - another cyclist got hit pretty bad on the Brooklyn bound lane of the manhattan side - but he could have handed out a card or called someone else. The cabbie rolled through the red light after stopping, trying to get a better look at the accident.

I am fine, bike is fine - but I am officially declaring "Pinata Month" on 3L47.

did you call up t&lc as well as the pig pen of the precinct you were in to file an official report?

you need to always get all the info possible and call it in right away.

didn't get the hack license number so TLC wasn't helpful. But I downloaded the XL file from there website and found out the owner of the medallion, then looked up the corporate address on the Dept. of State registry of corporations. They will be hearing from me.

Glad to hear that you're making headway. Stay diligent and become a real thorn in the side of that ******bag. If the cops won't help you, you gotta help yourself.
