2010/10/26: Speaking of bikes ...

Created:

So, my bike's back tire got bent out of shape last night (or at any rate before the rain here began). Not sure how; possibly an accident which somehow didn't happen to any of the other bikes on the bike rack, possibly vandalism given my bike-history since I moved to this apartment. The guy at the bike shop bent it most of the way back into shape for $15, but he said it wasn't a permanent solution, and riding on it, it didn't feel like one either, so I'm most likely going to have to plonk down $50 in order to get it actually replaced.

On the bright side, I seem to have pretty much recovered from my previous sickness. But bweh. That's it, I'm going to actually bring it inside.

This reminds me of the time I was riding my bike when my front wheel just burst from over pumping, and made me flip over with a faceplant.

I turned around when me and my sister were on our bikes once... ran right into her as I turned and we both ran into each other. And the ground. At the same time.

Man I feel for you. I've lost count how many seats my bikes have lost before the whole thing was taken.

Darn Bike Vandals... i know this.. same happened to mine, day after day... one time it was stolen, the other times they've let the air outta my tires... i guess the only solution really is to lock it up in your own cellar-room O:
Anyways, its nice to hear that youre getting better :3

I once drove downhill pretty fast when some stupid insect came flying into my face, I pulled the wrong brake... and flipped over twice -_-
Result: brakes broken (yes, both of them), apart from that bike intact, left hand broken.

I once took my dad's mountain bike out, broke (or at least dislodged) the speedometer he had installed at about 40 kph, and then a few seconds later the chain fell off. I jumped sideways off the bike and rolled off at an angle; both me and the bike came out more or less okay.

Ouch, sucks.:( My coworker and his roommate have given over a large part of their living room to their bikes for just this reason.
