    My brand new Cervelo R3 is at Spyder Composites for Thanksgiving...

    Won't be home until right before Christmas.

    Ugh!

    While riding the bike for the the very first time - at mile 35 of a 37mi ride - I was bombing down one of my favorite hills at about 40mph, when my phone managed to pop out of from my jacket pocket. Near as i can determine, it kicked off my foot/leg and into the rear wheel where the spokes then jammed it into the left seat stay.

    In >3,000mi this year I've never had my phone fall out of a jersey pocket. Not even close. All I can figure is that perhaps with the new bike being more "aggressive" geometry (and the stem slammed down to boot) than my Specialized Secteur that perhaps I got my shoulders/torso lower in a downhill tuck position than before and that caused the rear pocket to be closer to horizontal... allowing the phone to slide out.

    Cracked screen and a bit bent, but it still works.

    I'd trade a broken i-phone for a non-broken frame any day... especially since it's a work phone!
