I was heading to the library tonight when some ******bag made a left turn into me when I had the light. He hit my rear triangle pretty good throwing my back end around - fortunately I was braking like mad and most of my weight was on the front. Anyway, the car braked breifly, looked back at me then continued on his way like nothing happened. I realised I could still ride and took off after him. Caught him 3 blocks later at a light, had 911 on the line and gave them a description of the car and license plates. Then I went around the side and told the driver that he hit me (I'm not actually sure it was a guy. He was a dead ringer for Weird Al, but had a really high-pitched, feminine-sounding voice.) He said, " I know, I'm sorry. I've been there before, I'm sorry." Then he took off, again. Anyway, I just waited for the cops who were suprised as **** I managed to catch the guy. I'm supposed to hear from them tomorrow about what happens next.
Funny thing is, I think my bike is okay. I can't tell if it hit the rear triangle or the wheel. There is a mark on the triangle, that is probably from the impact, but I can't tell. The wheel is still mostly true, but it was shifted in the dropouts (I think). It's not centered now and I can't tell if it is just shifted or if the rear stay was bent. I'm not messing with it. I'll take by the LBS in the morning and let them bill the *******.
