What did you do TO / WITH / FOR your bike today!

Did something really really stupid
A guy on our Saturday social ride almost cost me 18 months training and $5000+ in trip expenses, 2 weeks out of the TransTas today. I’m rolling down the Mt Buninyong bitumen road, beside a mate at about 50km. Dude, on an ebike, barrels through between us at about 70km. Hits the other guy, bounces off, hits me in the wrist with his bars, I almost go into the trees at high speed (or face first onto bitumen)
I tore him a new one, abused the fuck outta him for being an utter fuckwit. He said one pretend sorry, so I ripped in again, saying to stick it up his arse, the fuckwit c$&t.
For context, he’s done this a few times over the years, between bouts of sexist, racist and homophobic comments about people we pass on a ride. I haven’t punched in anger since Y8…I came close today.
Go with your instinct, violence is always the answer.

Finally put a new chain on the roadie, it had been getting a little noisy. Holding the old one up next to the new one was an “ooops…” moment - super stretched!

Hope the cassette is ok…

No. No more new bikes for you. You have to leave stock for us plebs trying to save money in between raising kids. ;)
I’ll be selling a Sentinel frameset at very reasonable pricing if you’re interested. ;)
