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...

Poor bike.

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.

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.
