    oh yah, don't let her race. When I crashed last year, my kidney went into mild rejection but UCLA transplant center got me squared away with some extra meds. whew I agree about it. I don't think it's targeting either. Just folks don't care...

    Wow, scary story Mike! Yeah, the docs told Gina when she donated the biggest reason for losing the remaining kidney is an accident or gun shot. So I do what I can to protect her on the bike and other places. I know some forum members have said I...

    yah, here in Southern California I have to be alert to everything. Hit and run seems to be the thing to do around here, especially when they hit pedestrians or cyclists. March 2018 a black SUV made an illegal mid block u-turn in front of me but...

    I have to agree with you, there, because I see them. I also see a lot of memorial signs posted where cyclists were killed, and I wonder what the cause was, considering they're riding on the sidewalk.

    That is rare in my experience. The most dangerous ones are the drunks, texters, and illegals with no insurance who hit and run. Drunks often drive the wrong way on highways at night, and end up killing whole families. Of course, bikes won't be...

    It seems that many cyclists obsess about the possibility of getting hit by a car from behind, but it's actually the least likely type of bike/motor vehicle accident at ~5%. In my post above, it wouldn't have made any difference if the cyclist had...

  12. BrianNystrom replied to the thread Accidents that occur from behind.

    You forgot to mention that a major contributor to the problem is the huge number of very elderly drivers in Florida who should not be behind the wheel. A friend of mine was recently killed on a group ride when a 91-year-old woman plowed into them...

  13. BrianNystrom replied to the thread Specialized cross trail crank arm problem.

    That's good advice, but if this is a chronic and common problem, you need to look at how the nut is being installed. Typically, manufacturers recommend greasing the threads (which appears to be the case in your pic), but that's apparently not...

    Wow, what a moron that driver is! :eek: Good thing you are aware of your surroundings as too many cyclists aren't. I think too many other cyclists would have just went ahead and got themselves hit by this moron. My thoughts, a little better to...
