    Don't let something distract you while riding in a pack. Be glad you only destroyed your frame- that is much cheaper than landing on your face like I did. And you might consider a front brake next time too.

    He knows all about that, too...

    Dude. Ouch. Sorry to hear that. Do you have a bike to ride now? Last weekend I rescued an old road bike with horizontal dropouts from a dumpster. I'm thinking that I might make a summer project of it but I'm happy to give it to you. It definitely needs a lot of work to be road-worthy again. Let me know.
    Fredo, you're my older brother and I love you...but don't ever take sides, with anyone, against the family again...ever.

    They allow dumpster diving in Irvine? Or did the trash man take it out and gift box it for you?

    re: front brake..

    i had zero time to react. i barely had enough time to say "OH SHI-"

    i'm on the lookout for a new aluminum frame, probably the same thing but new. lay away, perhaps. i'm not a baller like all the roadies around here!

    HI,

    Sorry to see all the damage. I've got the same frame but I ride it on the track. Good luck with your replacement search.
    Thanks.
