With my 48x16 gearing maxed out and a van pulled out in front of me last night. If not for my front brake i would have t-boned them i think. I almost hit them anyway. Absolutley no way to have skidded and not hit them. Since i was hauling ass when i nailed the front brake i ended up over the bars. Very messy, long crash but i lived. Wrist is apparently fractured and some bruises. Will have to see.
If i had hit the van i would be VERY hurt im sure.
