    i thought squirrels were like pigeons, isn't there some sort of deal where we stay out of eachother's ways for the most part? poor roadie, i remember seeing those pictures years ago, i don't remember if the guy was injured or not...

    happened to me with a rabbit at about 20 mph.
    the rabbit took a ride around full circle in my wheel and popped out at the last second before colliding with my fork he seemed okay afterwards and I was scared to death. I always see rabbits on that trail, even the little babies...

    Aside from the unfortunate passing of the squirrel, I LOL'd.

    I'm experimenting with hamsters on steroids, putting one each in the front and rear wheels and harnessing their power, I get AWD and don't have to pedal.

    I think I can put one in the front wheel and then design a tube that goes from the bottom bracket back to the rear hub and harness a team of hamsters on steroids for the rear wheel drive ?

    Does that squirrel have legs like Usain Bolt though is the question ? I think I'll need 3 or 4 of them.
