FormlessOne: Kyosuke: Conveniently edited for the bicyclist's convenience....and the arrest, too, was conveniently generated.The real point, though, is why are we taking sides in an argument generated by a video that only shows part of what happened? Is this what we've come to, that we don't really care about anything other than the chance to argue pointlessly with each other?
One Bad Apple: Hokey as in selectively edited. There is nothing about a brake check shown in the video. The differences in momentum and maneuverability of a truck vs a bicycle makes that scenario seem unlikely.

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.I would not take a $500 bike on the 508 or RAAM. I would ride a $1700 bike on either, with a backup. In fact, I did.As far as the 'tard who remarked that it is unlikely that the truck did a brake check on bikers if they were in a proper pace line - you do not know how to ride a bike. On a road like the video, a good pace line should be hitting ~28MPH and a truck could easily swerve and stop before the bikes piled into one another, Mr. Couch Potato.I have to agree that I have seen some very stupid riders. Five abreast out into streets or blowing through traffic lights because they think people will break for them. That being written, I have more often encountered beer bottles and dumbf**k hicks in trucks who should be put to death because they are so f**king retarded. Generally those people get confused that being an asshole does not mean you are a tough guy, it just means you are an asshole.The fat, redneck in the truck is typical of the lazy sacks of crap who think just because they are too lazy to exercise and that their inconsequential lives require them to get home as quickly as possible to drink their Jack and watch Fox tell them how much the libs suck.I was riding to work one day. A BMW raced past me them pulled into the driveway just ahead of me. I skidded into it, took my foot out of my clips and drove the metal into the side of his BMW to stop. He seemed to be a bit peeved that I torn into the side of his BMW. As opposed to the nice response of the video person, my response was "What the f**k are you going ...
Fubini: I just saw ~20 bikers blow through a red light and almost cause an accident.
libranoelrose: That's interesting to hear what Omaha means
