Garage 1, bike rack 0

by John Wilker in Random

So what happens when you enter your garage forgetting you have a bike on top of your car?


Luckily the bike, unharmed. Which woulda sucked, since it was Nicole’s replacement bike that we bought at the police auction, and had essentially just finished getting into tip top shape for her to ride.

It’s interesting that the plastic tire strap snapped and the rail itself (pic one) bent until failure, and the grabber arm, that you tighten on to the bike’s frame, actually let go. I presume that’s by design, and I’m very pleased to only have to buy a new bike rack vs a new bike.

The car faired well too, only a slight gouge on teh roof, from the pedal as the bike collapsed on to the roof.

Needless to say, Nicole and I will not be so engrossed in a conversation that close to home after being out with a bike.

    Ouch John,

    a good friend of mine did that with his fancy cyclo bike on top about 10 days ago – then managed to BACK OVER said bike while trying to untangle the mess.

    I could have done that. I'm glad the bike is ok.
