    So I was on the corner of Norfolk and Mass Ave waiting at a red light so I could take a left onto Mass Ave and hit up Central Sq...

    I am in the left lane on the far left waiting for a good 30 seconds and a car hits me from behind.

    I ask the lady why she hit me. I asked her why she didn't stop at a red light, I was waiting there not like I just stopped. I told her she needs to pay attention and drive more safe.

    Her reply, "You need to be more safe" She spoke barely any english and after examining my back wheel and seeing its okay I waved her off.

    That's my accomplishment for today, not ulocking some jerkoff for hitting me. I'm showing more self control. Now gimmie some chocolate!!!Think of bicycles as rideable art that can just about save the world

    robotbuilder:^Where can I find nice & narrow tires for my commuter mountain bike?

    Hutchinson Top Slick 26X1" work pretty well. I also liked the specialized fatboy 26X1.25", though it's a bit wider.Troglodytarum is latin for troll

    Got a pinch flat. That in itself is not accomplishment worthy, but it ripped through the sidewall on my gatorskin. Used a piece of the old tube to kind of patch it, but that rip is still there, staring at me. So I guess kinda sorta patching my sidewall is my accomplishment.


    Anyone got a not too fucked up tire they could throw me for a week?dongpincher 1000

    ^^ What pressure was the tire at? Or was it seriously under pressure? cause the same thing happened to me last week and I ended up replacing the damaged tire with a Gatorskin.

    I was riding through the MIT area on Mass Ave in the bike lane and was about to pass a bus, when this guy out of nowhere runs into the bike lane and starts running towards the side door of the bus to get on. He's running head on towards me and I grab my front brake and when I stop, my wheel is between his legs. Then he does a little dance over my wheel and I guess gets onto the bus. The End.

    Lessons learned: don't run into bike lanes in the direction of riders, using a front brake may one day save some frantic person's genitals & other lower organs.

    I had a spectacular crash at the intersection of Beacon/Kirkland this morning, while doing a full out sprint through a yellow light. I think the cat to my right in the toaster was anticipating a green, and tried to mash-it-on. Quick over the bars while turning the front wheel too hard, lil' tuck-n-roll, a lil' hip, a lil' pelvis, and had time to see my bike continue it's olympic gymnastic tryouts a few feet in front of me.

    There was a salad in my bag, which apparently got tossed pretty well, too.Do You KNOW Clarence?

    Ok, so I kinda rode through the Copley Mall tonight. It didn't go over too well the security-type people.

    I was meeting a friend for diner, who does not ride a bike. I was walking my bike along with him by CSC, and he said we should cut through the mall. So then I found myself walking my bike with him through the mall. At this point I thought, "Oh, man...I really can't pass this opportunity up." Right around the time I was cruising by Williams Sonoma, the boys in blue started having a little hissy, and my fun time was over. Well worth it, and I'll propose that route for the next CM. ;)All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.
