Sprint. Sprint. Pop. Crash!
Or, that's how Bertram described NicIz2HardKore's most recent crash:
Nic was just riding along, minding his own business, past the Esplanade when the front tire of his Cannondale suddenly popped. As he struggled to control the sudden deceleration, Commissar A Dumb LardButt (the lesser known, more officious, way less photogenic, non-talented twin of Adam Lambert) waddled by on his Tomac Kar Pai — after consuming 2.3 metric tons of brownies; the ensuing gravity well caused the Cannondale's rear wheel to come off...
I wonder how carbon fiber would fare here.
Sella San Marco Regal Titanium Saddle. *sob!*
Damage to the Cannondale: scored brifters and surprisingly little scratching to the frame. The saddle is totaled though — in addition to the torn leather, the rails are bent.
Damage to the engine.
From The Unauthorized Bicycle Repair Manual:
Step 1: Drink Beer.
