    I literally cringed at those pics as I was scrolling down because usually nowadays with lighter materials such happenings take the frame with it which later upon reading proved true. Sorry for your loss.

    Not even. I have had so many people make u-turns right in front of me as I approach them or even right into me (I avoided collision)

    Thanks. I guess those are the breaks. We'll see what we hear back from Fuji. The biggest bummer is I have no geared bike to ride for awhile. On the upside, time to fix up the fixed. Which needs it badly. I'll be looking at wheelsets today.

    In other news...I wish I had a mtb, just so I could buy these shoes:

    OMFGWANT.

    today upon inspection of my rear wheel realized that i did indeed break a spoke on my ride home last night, right at the hub at the bend of the spoke head
    was seated, going up the hill out of campus and heard it, it sounded like a stick hit the spokes but it was a clear road

    sick watts.

    good thing @mconlonx gave me extra spokes with the wheels <3

    Today I commuted in, and loved, my Catlike Whisper. I can feel a breeze over my head, first helmet I've ever had like that. Tonite, shooting for a quick 15-20 mi. Tomorrow, the Sugino 75s go on the bike. Stoked.

    One of my favorites. It's too bad it's no longer as of the '13 TDF Catlike's top offering. =/
    Innovation and the monie in my wallet must go on!

    A heavy nail will do the same thing as a center punch.

    Today I did 46 miles fixed and just got a call saying I get my bike back!

    No bent frame.
    The derailleur was mostly fixable, about $40 in replacement parts.
    One spoke had to be replaced, the rest got a clean bill of health, $2
    Labor costs were around $40.

    Less than $100 worth of damage. I can handle that.

    I think I'm going to celebrate by buying some dura ace pedals.

    today, with much anxiety, drilled 2 holes in my frame and installed some threaded rivets and my new cages

    i subsequently went for a ~14 mile test run to get used to using the second cage and wandered around some trails which apparently are more complex than i thought
