Default Re: Hello

Yeah, that'd make me want a few more lights too. Eventually I may go to a light system run from the motor, but I already had everything else before the motor came along. The front lights are battery-less wind-up lights.

The driver caught me with the right front corner of her bumper against the frame of my bike just in front of the back hub. I know the bike and I did one full 360, and I did at least one more on the ground. Nothing broken on me, just some deep bruising to where I landed on my back and shoulder. She'd done a rolling stop, so her speed was low at the time fortunately. The bike shop took care of the repairs and frame straightening. They handled it like they see it all the time around here.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
