Saturday I decided to do some material-strength testing while I was out on the road bike. I thought that while riding my skinny-tire rig I would dangle a very large plastic bag fool of triathlon goodies (for my gf’s b-day) including a brand new pair of steel Salsa skewers. I love their stuff…so does my front wheel. I look down and the corner of the bag is nippin’ at the spokes and before I can bring my trusty steed to a halt, the skewers (from inside the bag) get caught in the spokes! Below are a couple of pics to show you how things turned out:
I spent 3 hours in the ER to make certain I didn’t brake my elbow and I’m chalk full of scrapes and bruises. The one on my cheekbone is a great conversation-starter. Anyway, two wheels down at all times!
