    Those bicycle wheels are quite strong aren’t they?

        PSA list from weakest to strongest:
        roof rack clamp, rear window, car roof, bicycle wheel, garage door, roof joist

    What the bike says : “Look”
    What the driver did : not that

    A classic mistake. Back at the titanium bicycle factory we would repair a lot of frames that had suffered this same fate.
    The best story I heard was… a couple of guys planning to go for a Saturday ride. After a few frosty bevvies on Friday, they decide to get a jump on things by putting the roof rack on. Everything was solid up until they hit the freeway, when both bikes and the rack went “off the back” as they say in the peleton.
    Our customer was certainly paying the price for his mistake, having us replace a main tube and re-align the frame ain’t cheap. But his buddy? With the all-carbon fiber frame? He has a 200 meter long string of very expensive components to find, and only a thin trail of fine black dust leading from one to the other.

    An interesting development in the life of this hoon comes in the form of a surprise new domicile.
    We were planning on moving next year, after my youngest graduated high school, but a casual perusal of zillion.com revealed The House and the wife and I both agreed that it was exactly what we wanted. A tour, an offer and we are now in contract.
    The up side being a larger garage with a nice work bench and built in storage plus land enough for a future add on / stand alone workshop out back. Oh, and the house is beautiful too.

      I think we all know where the priorities are here. I just found a rental with a detached two car garage. It’s also an adorable 1939 shoebox near a BART station, but DAT GARAGE! And like 3 cars worth of driveway.
      Congratulations on the new house!

        My wife was ready to retire in our current house, there was no way I was living with this snug 2 car garage any more.
        The new house has a 2 car as well, but with room to breathe. A 3-4 car out building is in the plans sooner or later.

      And, are you building deeper relationships with your patients?
      Or did you mean zillow.com ?

        Lol, yup. Fixed it.

    Hot new trend: Fixies are on the way out, breaksies are on the way in.

      Remember: All bicycle are folding bicycles. What you want is an un-folding bicycle!

      I’ve been breaking & fixing bicycles and a buncha other stuff (and generally breaking & “fixing” them again) with wheels & motors for a few decades now. Am I ahead of the curve? Behind the eight ball? Over the rainbow?

        I just picked up an Itera bicycle that I’m thinking of carrying on my Volvo 66 GL for the LeMons rally, so in my case I believe the best description is around the bend.

      So, although they existed, I’m guessing someone just took a run down one and just recreated what that would have looked like here for a museum.

    Reminds me of my former neighbor…a woman very proud of her suburban affluence and stylishness. One day about 15 years ago, she proudly announced her stockbroker husband had just ordered her a customized new Hummer H2….and it would arrive in 6 weeks. Neighbor lady enjoyed reminding us of her timeline with weekly countdown updates–as if we cared. On the appointed Saturday morning, I was mowing my front lawn, and saw her approaching in her very pimped out new Hummer. She was beaming with pride. She turned up her driveway, headed into the garage, and …….BANG!!!!!!! The new H2 was about 6 inches too tall! –windshield smashed, “A” pillars bent, roof crumpled….roll-up garage door ruined, doorway header tweaked….it was Hilarious!!!!! I haven’t stopped laughing since….!
    –It was a bad omen….her husband…who cheated on his first wife for this bimbo, soon cheated on this second wife…he traded up for the newer model ten months later. It’s tough out there in suburbia….

      Karma and more karma. The whole lot of them should pilot a spaceship into the sun.

    It’s really easy to take a bath in Schadenfreude, but as a fellow idiot I feel the pain. Devastating!

    I know there’s been a hooniverse asks about road music, but I hadn’t heard this song then, so I’m going to share it now. Got to see them play it live last weekend and it’s been stuck in my head since. Faun Fables “Roadkill”
