Was riding from work down 8th Avenue around 9:30 at night. On the corner of 53rd and 8th I stop on the red light and some limo driver hits me from behind. I hit the pavement - was unclipped so no injuries, did a nice aikido roll. The light was clearly red, changed some good 10 sec before, and it's hard for him to say he did not notice me - I have a blinker mounted on my helmet (yes, dorky me - there is a headlight in the front too).
So, I get up. My rear wheel is in shambles (will try to get some pics later today) and it's a nearly brand new Cane Creek track wheelset . Needless to say I go ballistic. The driver is completely pale (well, as pale as a black guy could get). Everyone assembles around me, forming two equally vocal factions. Half the people are telling me to call the cops and the other half tells me I should just deal with the driver. After a bit of hesitation I decide for the latter (felt bad for the guy, I guess), so I get $300 for the wheel plus a ride home.
