long story short, couldnt stop fast enough, locked the brakes, fish-tailed, rear ended back of a car and broke my rim. Now i can finally quantify getting some new wheels. o injuries so hopefully it looked cool in action. :smartass:

Sorry to hear that. Glad you are alright, though. Where in So. Fla. was that?

That sucks. I've ridden up that way with the Kids In Distress ride. Always a beautiful, if not windy, course.

I guess you now have a cause to buy some nicer wheels! Happy shopping!

Glad to hear no injuries. I would like to hear the long version as I ride the same roads.
