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?

The best way to fail is to fail spectacularly!

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.
