RIP = KHS Aero Track = RIP

(Long story short...) At 5:45pm 10/24/14 when I was struck by a car doing 45. I went into the hood and windshield before flying 30 feet away. My bike went 30 feet in the other direction. My femur broke and I now have 3 screws holding it all together. Beyond lucky to still be alive. Let alone only coming away with a broken leg from such a bad accident. Can't work for 3 months. Selling prints to help with rent from missing so much work. Go here to view print options: http://cargocollective.com/jakericker. Any photo available. 8x10-$30 11x14-$45. Email me at: jakericker@gmail.com ========================================================= Bought from another Seattle messenger for super cheap. And I use it for work all the time as well. Looks a lot more uncomfortable than it is. Actually rides quite nice. http://www.flickr.com/photos/laali/ http://jesusaintsavingshit.tumblr.com / Instagram: @jake_ricker

i am going to assume this is not a story where a caliper brake would have made a difference..........

I was going 5 miles an hour in a bike lane on a green. It made no difference. Brakes do not make a bike safer. A good rider, less shitty drivers, and less dangerous intersections do.
