No, not a thread about recumbents... Was enjoying a lovely commute this morning (first since Christmas), and zipping down High St Sth to Barkers Rd in kew, when a passenger of a car up ahead decided to join me on this fine day and open the door wide into the bike lane... Thank God for nature strips with thick couch grass as that's where I landed after slamming into it... Now nothing seems overly broken physically (couple of scars and numb fingers on the right hand which I'm hoping will pass) and the bike survived ok, but on the rest of the ride it felt somewhat wafty and drifty, especially at the front. Now, this could just be my shock-addled brain, and nothing looks skew, but are there some obvious possibilities and quick checks to see if the frame's been bunged out at all or such? Wheel seems true, frame looks ok, headset seems tight. Not sure what else it could be if anything... Guess I'll be riding that stretch slower and more cautiously from now on - Pity it has to be that way.
