Merry Sunshine: Everyone in this video is an asshole, as are most of the farkers commenting in this thread.
I'm sorry someone got hurt in the crash incident, but I'm not sorry one of the assholes got his bike run over after placing it in front of a pickup truck.  What did he think would happen?


Also, how does riding down a road on a bicycle make you an asshole?

bikerific: Fubini: I just saw ~20 bikers blow through a red light and almost cause an accident.


Yesterday I saw a pickup truck go right through a red light.  This is very relevant.


Everyday I would get hit by drivers that think a stop sign is a go sign.  Fortunately I can read, am not color blind and pay attention.

Been almost car doored a few times by idiots who can't bother to look before opening their door.

I've seen idiots ride through red lights and cut off traffic.

I've seen pedestrians run around like small animals trying to get hit.

Not sure how pointing out dumbasses is relevant since they are everywhere doing all sorts of things.

Maybe they thought the guy would wait until police responded to the accident, rather than fleeing the scene abruptly.  They were just kind of standing around and the guy took off.

I will concede that it looked like a lack of situational awareness and/or naivete on the part of the cyclist.  Yeah, a rational driver should not have gotten into his truck and abruptly fled the scene, running down whomever was in front of him.  The cyclist standing by the front of the truck should have realized the driver was not rational.  Which still makes it the driver's fault, of course.

And I'm not at all sure the bicycle was purposely left in front of this jackasses' truck. He shouted abuse as he passed them, only to pull in front of them and brake in order to cause an intentional collision. Then he gets out, and waves around a baseball bat. At that point, no reasonable person is going to think that he'll be restrained from leaving if he has to run over a bicycle to do so. But it doesn't matter, either he'll be paying for the damage out of his pocket, or through increased insurance premiums.

That was really stupid of him to brake check and take out a couple bicyclists when a little swerving would have taken them all out.

I liked this thread because I can't stand cyclists, and I don't care for rednecks in pickup trucks. So a win-win for me in every line! Neither group should be allowed on the road.

Mr. Eugenides: rosebud_the_sled: Mr. Eugenides: Because the marginal improvement from a $500 bicycle to a $5000 bicycle is so minor that there's no payback.  Unless you're actually a professional racer it's just a penis extension.

Let me answer this one, Mr Tubby.  There is a huge difference between a $500 and $5000 bikes.  I would have to say that there isn't much difference between a reasonable $1700 bike and a $5000 bike.  There is a major difference in the weight.


So you're not arguing with the overall point I made simply the price point I selected.

True.  Most people who are concerned about shaving a few ounces from their frame should concentrate on either shaving several pounds off their body or becoming a better rider.  When I volunteer for double centuries, the front runners are generally have good bikes; the people at the rear of the pack have wind swept microgram $20,000 frames and all I can think is "Why did you piss all this money away and still suck?"

There was a woman at the bike shop last year when I was looking for some tubes who was hunting for a bike for her 8 year old son's birthday.  She bought one for about $8,000.  The kid is probably some tub of goo who will never be allowed to leave the driveway.

A couple of examples: A friend of mine - who could never be remotely equal to - has done a double with over 16,000 feet of climbing in a little over 13 hours on a steel framed fixed gear bike.  There was a guy who did Paris-Brest-Paris (>750 miles) a couple times ago on a push cart in less than 90 hours.

As far as I'm concerned, you only need to spend enough money to buy a reliable bike.  Everything else is fluff.  A reliable bike isn't cheap, but shouldn't be that expensive.

As a friend of mine recently said to me: "I don't know what's so great about Lance Armstrong.  I've have as many Tour de France wins on the record books as he does."
I don't watch any of the professional events.  They are filled with juicers.  If you do some of the doubles and such, there are people there who truly love to bike and are inspiring.  There's this woman - roughly 65ish - who lost her leg to some drunk driver about 6 years ago.  She's riding double centuries below the cut-off time still.  I felt honored to have her draft behind me in near Bishop this year.

I've got an idea.

Why don't we create a new extreme sport out of one of the world's most basic forms of transportation? Where people can pay thousands of dollars (and thus become deeply invested) for fragile equipment only to utilize it recreationally in the same high traffic areas the public uses for workplace commuting. These hobbyists can join clubs and develop the same exclusive camaraderie and member protectiveness witnessed in extralegal motorcycle brotherhoods. And by ratcheting up every aspect of this sport the wonderful dichotomy between non-hobbyists in sturdy, high-speed automobiles (that most calming of transportation vessels) and exercizing hobbyists on unprotected, relatively slow-speed bicycles having to share the same road will result in only peaceful attitudes between both parties.

What could possibly go wrong?

I spend a good portion of every work day driving a pick up truck for my job in and around one of the most cycling friendly small cities in northern California. And I never have a problem with people on bicycles. Every now and then I have to slow down on a two lane road, and wait until I can see far enough ahead to safely pass someone on a bicycle. Meanwhile, I have fellow motorists trying to kill me on a regular basis by not paying attention to their surroundings while driving. Yeah, what a plague on the road these bicycle riders are.
And you don't seem to know much about the history of bicycle racing.

You know, I think the only real asshole cyclist I've had to deal with on the road -- and I'll admit to not driving all that much -- wasn't actually on a bike at the time. No, he was jogging. But he was jogging in the middle of the thankfully not too busy road with the flow of traffic. Which is why I figure he was a cyclist, following traffic rules but forgetting he wasn't actually on his bike.

I passed him like you would a cyclist, but to this day I regret not honking my horn at the guy.

Of course, on a hilly two-way, getting caught behind a bicycle kind of sucks, because finding a safe passing zone is not easy. Hope you don't mind an old sedan slowly shadowing you for half a mile or so, Mr. Biker!

Key point there is about the drivers. Even in another automobile public roads are dangerous. People suck. Unless sport bicyclists can maintain 50mph they're going to have conflicts with drivers and these stories will continue to pop up.

I may not know the history of bicycle racing but I know in the last decade I've had hostile encounters with sport bike people, and I'm strictly a pedestrian / commute bicyclist. They're getting abuse from drivers and becoming more aggressive in response. So maybe they need to take the exercise onto a closed road.

I'm not saying bicyclists are the problem. I'm saying it's the environment.

The conflict is caused by a sense of entitlement. Look at this guy. He managed to get around the bicyclists, only to purposely drive one of them off the road. Why was he so angry that he would do that? Does he do that sort of thing when there is agricultural equipment going very slowly down a narrow road, causing a delay? I can't say for sure that he doesn't, but my hunch is no. He likely accepts the right of farm tractors to use the road, and lives with any inconvenience they might cause. But there is an all too prevalent attitude among all too many motorists that any inconvenience or delay caused by people on bicycles is completely unacceptable. They insist that bicycles don't belong on the road, the law says otherwise. It is an irrational hatred, and the logical justifications trotted out for it always vanish when exposed to the light of facts and reason. But that makes no difference to people like him. He (and others like him) is not a reasonable person acting in a reasonable manner. You can't use logic to change his mind, because no logic was used to develop his attitudes. All he will respect is force.

There is a difference between people using the roads for their functional intent (commerce/industry/transport) and their being a social understanding that for the benefit of us all, you have to accept things like tractors or slow trucks being on the roads, and invetment bankers using the roads as their weekend-warrior playgrounds when other people need to get shiat done. It is this second group that pisses people off, because they are putting their pleasure and indulgences over other people necessities.

How the f*ck does a pick up truck brake check someone on a bicycle ?

Cars and trucks have better brakes than bicycles, and can stop about twice as fast at road speeds. If someone in a truck like that is passing a bicycle at anything better than walking speed, they can easily pull in front of the bike and stop too fast for the bike to stop.
.


Uh, no. They have "better" brakes for bringing 3000-6000lbs to a stop. Bicycle brakes are plenty capable of bringing a bicycle to a stop from some bike-capable speed faster than what a car can do given a fair test. (Brake checks are not a fair test, one contestant is already fully on the brakes while the other has to find and apply the braking device.) Of course, it does require more skill for a bicyclist to do this properly without wiping out or going end-over, whereas the vehicle driver just has to stand on a pedal. It also requires them to be ready to brake, which isn't necessarily the case all the time.
 
2013-10-21 01:23:53 AM  
a little research on Mr. Clark shows he lives at the east end of the loop shown in the middle of this map.

maps.googleapis.com

As a loop it has no through traffic, and with his house at the east end there should be practically no traffic at his house because the shortest way to get out doesn't go past it. It is almost like living at the end of a dead end street.

It seems that the bike club decided that a 2 mile loop with no traffic was a good place to ride so now Mr. Clark has socialist bikers in gay outfits intruding on his isolation.
 
2013-10-21 02:02:23 AM  
If they cyclists are anything like the ones around here, they were taking up the whole road and were refusing to move over for motor vehicles like they are supposed to.  Cyclists insist they we have to share the road.  I agree.  Yet they don't seem to understand that they have to farking share the road, too, and they don't get to hold up traffic.  If you have cars backing up behind you, you are required by law to move over, farktards.

There was a video of some San Francisco bike douches doing just that.  They were antagonizing some older couple and you can see one guy pick up a bike and put it under the bumper to make it look worse.

You'd have to be pretty rich and stupid to pay 4 to 7 thousand dollars for a bicycle.

You have no clue. A competition road bike is 8K-12K, Add some more for different gearing clusters. add some more for different wheels.
Wheel sets can cost $5K

I world class competition road bike $20K+

The prototype Cervelo SLC_SL frame that my father was given to test  was valued at $5K.


A Cervelo RCA frame is $10K

Nope.  The worse offenders are the bicycle messengers in San Francisco (and probably all other big cities).  They don't believe rules of the road and basic safety standards apply to them.  And when one of them gets flattened by a bus because he decided to pull right out in front of it, the messengers stage a protest.  Darwin laughs at them.  They make his job so easy.

2013-10-21 04:27:21 AM  
We don't know exactly what happened.  We have a video that starts after the incident and shows a group of bicyclists confronting someone who admits to hiting a rider and whom is holding a bat at the time of the interview.  He then gets in the truck and leaves the scene of an accident running over additional bikes.  There certainly is enough to charge a crime, but you can charge a potato as well, it doesn't mean he will be convicted.  However once the whole investigation takes place, we may see these charges go away or be enhanced.  You rarely hear charging decisions and alterations 6 months down the line.

Putting on my devils advocate hat and what this older vehicle driver may say., We know a certain segment of the cyclist community can be aggressive.  He could have had a conflict with one of these and being older and outnumbered when he was confronted with that interview, he was fearful being older and knowing what happened in NY with the motorcyclists so he had the bat for protection.  If he feared for his safety, he could have felt the need to flee and contact law enforcement away from the group of riders. It wouldn't be fleeing the scene of the accident if he informs law enforcement why he is doing it and where he will be located to discuss the incident.  You don't want an accident to escalate into an assault so sometimes separation is a good thing.

I am certainly not saying any of this happened.  The driver (now defendant)  could have driven like a maniac and mowed down the riders and then acted like an asshole driving off to mow down pedestrians at a farmers market.  However taking a specific segment of video showing the negative conduct or behavior of one party without showing the whole incident and what may have been negative conduct by the other party can lead to a rather slanted viewpoints.  You most often see this in police recordings by third parties that capture conduct of police on suspects without capturing what the suspect did that warranted that reaction.  I am skeptical when I have a small segment of the aftermath without showing what happened leading up to the incident.

As I mentioned above the incident took place on what bat-man, Sherman Clark, seems to consider his and the other resident's private road - it ends in a 2 mile loop with practically no traffic.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2468321/Grandfather-74-confr on ts-cyclists-baseball-bat-running-biker-road-suddenly-stopping-causing- injury.html

This was not the first incident Mr Clark has had with the group, he said he has exchanged profanities with them in the past ...

'This club comes out here and rides around and around and around our circle,' he lamented,'they make a nuisance of themselves.'



So he got mad that the cyclists were on HIS road and decided to do something about it.

NeoCortex42: For all we know, it's a two-lane road and the cyclists were taking up a good chunk of his lane. We don't know what the situation was before the video started.

While he is certainly an ass for brake-checking them, I have seen way too many cyclists that seem to feel they own the farking road and ride two or three abreast.


This failure of logic never ceases to amaze me.

They're taking up as much of the lane a a slow moving car would. How dare they. Are YOU acting like you own the whole road because your car takes up the majority of the lane its in?

Repeat after me: When I encounter a slow moving vehicle, no matter what type it is, I will pass it when it is safe and legal to do so. Until then I will quit acting like I'm entitled to drive as fast as I want and whine about people being in 'my way'.

It would be interesting to know if the road is owned/maintained by the local government or by a HOA.  It has no center or side markings.  If it's a HOA, then it really IS his road...

Dinki: Given where the video starts, it's hard to say who is at fault. Were the cyclists riding single file as required by law, or were they all over the road obstructing traffic? The video starts with him stopped in the middle of the road. Were the cyclists also in the middle of the road?


I missed the part where we allow angry old men with baseball bats enforce the law.  I don't care if they were doing stunts down the middle of the street.  Old Man river is not a police officer.

In my own personal experiences the last guy is more of a 50/50 (I'm in the good 50..)
95.3 is this guy:

I enjoy these threads because it shows how delusional the cyclist crowd is.

How the f*ck does a pick up truck brake check someone on a bicycle ?

Cars and trucks have better brakes than bicycles, and can stop about twice as fast at road speeds. If someone in a truck like that is passing a bicycle at anything better than walking speed, they can easily pull in front of the bike and stop too fast for the bike to stop.
.


Bikes aren't supposed to have brakes.  I know because Joseph Gordon-Levitt says it in that one documentary about bike riders who deliver packages and solve crimes.

Mikey1969: stonelotus: so charges for the bike fairy who kicked the truck?

What kind of charges? Is there damage to the truck? If so, it would civil court thing, not criminal like the old moron's charges would be.

I AM serious. What would the "charges" be? If he didn't damage the truck when kicking it, then there is nothing to file charges for. If he DID damage it, it would most likely be handled in civil court, as opposed to criminal court. The old guy's behavior, on the other hand, is full of stuff that goes to criminal court, assault, leaving the scene of an accident, causing an accident, etc...

/BTW, what he did with the baseball bat is the assault part there...

basemetal: I hate that anyone was hurt, but did like the part where he ran over the bike they were too stupid to move at the end.

/the law will take care of the old man


This, and I am a cyclist. Douchebags everywhere, in cars and on bikes.

mrbach: I liked this thread because I can't stand cyclists, and I don't care for rednecks in pickup trucks. So a win-win for me in every line!


You're still a f*cking loser for using the phrase "win-win".
