Ever been on a ride and hit a squirrel? Shit can get real bad, real quick like.
I remembered the post a few days ago about a busted carbon seatpost, and It looks like many of you have either contributed to or should to busted carbon dot com.
You’re wondering where the rest of the bike and rider is, aren’t you…?
I’m always nervous after a storm…
And something I’ve experienced, but not this close up. You like Venison?
Keep your eyes peeled, check your gear often and be safe out there folks. It’s a nasty place for us.
(Hat tip to Busted Carbon for the awesomeness. You are going to be a regular wake-up with coffee site for me.)by
That was no deer. That was a fuckin’ chupacabra!
My Raleigh has been around for thirty-five years. It will be around for a hundred more if anyone still knows how to ride. Wonder how many of those plastic one trick ponies will still be in service in, say, five years?
I don’t give a shit WHAT your frame is made of…that oak tree would win!
My everyday rides are steel. My day-off warrior is plastic bits. Ride them all until they break!
I had Bambi and his mom come down in front of me on a trail ride. Hot on their tails were two coyote. Mrs. Bambi proceeded to turn around and come back down slope straight at the coyotes. Short story: deer 1, coyote 0. Plus, it looked like those ‘yotes had some busted ribs to nurse up. I’m glad I was on the ascent when it happened.
damn. it took me 3xs watching the video to see what the hell happened. i must be getting old. damn glad he was ok.
I met a woman who hit a squirrel while descending, and it jammed her front wheel; she broke several bones and was off the bike for a year. Very nasty.
Only 3x ?
It took me 6-7.
That would put me in the old fuck category.
Never had time to brake on a descent and missed a bear by inches on my birthday ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway a couple of years ago. Very memorable ride. Bears are so cool.
