A long, long time ago on a post far, far way I promised to upload more pictures of my (then) new (but used) bicycle. Well, months later I’m here to make good on that promise!
I cleaned my bike up a few days ago and took the chance to snap a few photos of my bike before I went and gunked it all up again. Here’s a view of the whole bike from the side:
Here’s a closeup of the crank:
Finally, here’s a view looking down the handlebars towards the rear of the bike:
Also, over the weekend I twittered that I got hit by an SUV. As I said via twitter, I’m 100% OK and so is my bike (the SUV had a small scratch). I was pedaling down Dorchester Avenue, and a block from the Savin Hill Ave intersection, the SUV to my left banged a sharp right to try to get into a parking spot as he did not realize I was pedaling right next to him. He quickly stopped as he heard my handlebar scraping his SUV and I quickly bounced to the right and swerved around his SUV, maintaining my balance the entire time.
No one was hurt and it seemed the driver learned a lesson of watching his blind side so no harm no foul. Everyone (bikers, pedestrians, drivers and others), be careful out there!
