Hey Clark, what do you do for a living, design animated smilies? That one made me laugh the most, bar none!

It was Thursday evening, about an hour after a storm had rolled through. The ground was still very wet, but I decided to go for a ride. I took it slow at first, but in time, I was eager for more speed. I was dodging parked cars left and right. Finally, I came to the top of my driveway. I rocketed around the corner. Hell, I must have been doin' 5, maybe even 6mph! About halfway through the turn I hit a slick spot, and the back wheel skidded out in front of me. I slid along the ground with my bike for nearly 3 feet!

I myself sustained only minimal damage. However, the damage to the bike adds up to a whopping $6.59 for a new pedal.


It sucks not being old enough to ride.

Might I suggest the BSF course (Bicycle Safety Foundation). What tire pressures were you running? What kind of chain lube? Did you have your helmet and other protective riding gear on? Lastly, for that kind of riding, you need to take it to the track.
