Bent Rim

bike brakes

This is a shot of the brakes on my bicycle. If you look close enough, you’ll notice the brake is pressed close to the rim. That is because the rim is bent. It is bent thanks to a gentleman in a red Ford Ranger who decided to roll out of the Fred Meyer parking lot without looking up to see me. I appreciate that he didn’t hurt me, but I didn’t appreciate the damage or the fact that he only paused long enough to see that I wasn’t injured and then sped away.
