    Wrecked Bike - been posted?...

    Sorry if this has already been posted. Can't remember where I got it, but I think it fell off the bike rack and was run over by a semi. That would have brought tears to my eyes. - TF

    Yikes TF, I think I would've definitely remembered seeing that on RBR before. How many times did you say the bicycle got run over and over? Wonder if insurance covered the whole thing...

    Yea, I know. I saw a similar accident once with a Ti bike. You should have seen the mess it made of that truck. - TF

    Did the owner try to contact Aegis about the no-fault crash replacement program?

    ouch

    True that the carbon did not hold up like aluminum, but the truck felt little vibration when running the carbon frame over

    Alright, I actually laughed at that. True bike geek humor.

    insurence

    I know I am not well liked here right now but I hope you all can learn somethign form me.......

    I have one piece of important advice for you all. If you have seperate home owners insurence and car insurence please consider combining them under one company when it comes time for your renewal. If anything ever happens to your car and something in/on your car is damaged/stolen, it will make your life much easier only dealing with one insurence company.

    Yes, everyone can learn from this.

    Locked like the other thread- time to move on.
