The Chainlink

While happily attending my first mass I stopped in front of this car who was trying very hard to edge into the stream at Washington and Bishop. I guess this guy, a yuppie if I ever saw one, forgot to hold his brake, he rolled into my wheel.

We settled without cops, I charged him $200, went to a friends house and bought her early eights fuji tourer, changed the wheels and rode home. (I've had my eye on this fuji for a while, even if it's too big for me...I'll sell it and thus have free wheels)


Was this kosher? What would you have done?

If you weren't hurt you did fine. Enjoy the new bike!
What size is the frame? I'm looking for a tourer?
I'm 5'10~11" and it's about 2 inches too high via stand-over...so like 6'0" to 6'5" for a good fit.

it's orange, and in good shape for having been locked in a garage for a couple of decades.
I'd run you over on purpose, charge you for it and then move in your house and call your family my own. People get a life. If you want to be on C mass and be a part of an unruly mob, get ready to pay out of your own pocket, cause that is the only way your gonna get anyone's respect from anyone who is worth more than junk bike or wheel.
I just gotta say that people gotta take responsibility for their own actions and quit blaming everyone else. You also cannot justify corking an intersection for more than a few minutes or riding on LSD with crap like cars don't belong or we hate BP. People just cop up to the truth and admit it just another excuse to drink, ride and cross lines that cannot be enforced practically. Me I am just a follower, I don't justify bad behavior with anything other that what it amounts too. No one who corks intersections, acts like a fool or rides on LSD in setting any kind of example or changing anything other than to make more city and the cops pissed off next month. I am really curious as to how next month will play out .... any predictions ?

Dick, meet ass! ;-) Might consider deleting the thread as it won't get better from here. Jerk above takes every opportunity to bash Critical Mass cause his opinion should be everyone's. And, even though the universe is well aware of his opinion he never stops telling ya anyway.
If the OP were a cute hipster female, there'd be a friend request involved instead of a tirade. Just sayin.

Of course it is, never said otherwise.

scaming money from some ignorant and scarged suit: +$200
nice fuji with equally crappy but not bent wheels: -$150.
the new crappy wheels i already ordered: -$80

Being trolled by a 45 year old man named cutifly who needs a step ladder to mount his regular ride...
fucking priceless man.

cheers!
Stepladder nope, me asking anyone for money Not really my style, inane and offensive in response to certain threads, Yes. Trolling, not even close to that. So, I guess time to tone it down cause I am not gonna influence in a positive light anyway. Sorry, I really am glad your ok and you got what you needed from the Universe so it all worked out. 43 years old so we all have it correctly. Peace ... and I do love CM, no bashing it, just don't think it is going to be decent with 25 cops riding along next month.

To the OP, and anyone who would take on a psycho in a car-- it's really not that hard just to let the poor slob, or even two or three, go-- I've seen it done on many masses. I'm guessing you know whether you did the right thing or not though.
trolling was harsh, I'll admit; This is not anonymous enough to really do that anyway.

But Cuti, you exemplified the point perfectly: what I did is slightly unethical on a personal level. That's why I came in here and asked for an aggregate opinion...and you delivered in spades man. I tried to pedal off and continue, my night was not over, but...well, that wheel don't turn. Only when I was off the bike did scam mode kick in.

I'll say this: my time here has definitely hastened the erosion of my ability to stick to the moral ideals I once held(they were already well in decline before I arrived).
