When bike's attack...

That's my new movie coming out this Summer, only bad thing is I'm not the star of the film. I guess if you put it in the terms of a Friday the 13th movie the bike would be Jason, and I'd be the guy/chic that just had sex (they always get killed right then....WTH?) But I guess better after then before right.

So what the Hell am I talking about?

I guess the whole world (besides myself) knew about the Look Keo's having a recall on them.

"Hazard: The steel axle inside the pedal can break, posing a fall hazard to cyclists."

"Incidents/Injuries: Look Cycle has received 14 reports of incidents with broken pedals, including 7 injuries which resulted in scrapes, cuts, contusions, elbow pain, and a knee injury."

Any guess on what pedals I had on the skinny tired thing?

I guess I was lucky that it happened on a standing climb with my buddies nice soft chain rings to break my fall next to me. Driving my elbow into the pavement may have been worse. Not sure what I hit with my back, that nice straight line is a little strange. But the matching one on my chest is from my top tube I know.

But all's well. The bike should be ready to roll again today, even if I'm not.
