DOH!!!!

Eventually, if you have roof racks, you will forget you have something up top and nasty things will happen. "Eventually" caught up with me on Tuesday night. After picking up my daughter I headed home after a long days work. She was talking to me about something, I can't remember what, and as I eased my car into the garage I hear the sound of 80's metal on vinyl siding and I'm not talking about Poison.

I quickly throw the car into reverse, as if to try and undo what has happened, only to find my beloved Dumpster Fixie bent and stretched towards the rear of the vehicle. It was a sad sight to behold.

Damn, dude, cue Chopin's Piano Sonata No. 2...

That was a nice ride. Sorry to hear it. From the dumpster it came, to the dumpster it shall return.

Sad... after all the work you put into it bringing it back to life. This is the very reason I have adamantly refused to get a roof rack; I _know_ I'd destroy a bike. Heck, one time I backed out of the garage when the door wasn't completely up and tore it off the hinges.

I've been toying with the idea of busting out the oxy/acty torch and attempting a little tubing replacement. Hell, it can't make it any worse and I may just learn a thing or two about frame repair. As I cruise Ebay and Craigslist I'm starting to realize just how nice that frame really is.
