SCIC or Milwaukee...dunno..I went with WI

You were on the main road, she was on the main road... not private property. The private property tag creates issues because most traffic infractions aren't enforceable on private property, however, according to what you're saying this is occurred on the main road.

Looks to me that she violated WI traffic statute 346.32, which simply states
"Required position for turning into private road or driveway. The operator of a vehicle on a highway who intends to turn into a private road or driveway shall make the approach for the turn in the same manner as specified in s. 346.31 for vehicles making an approach for a right or left turn at an intersection. If, because of the size of the vehicle or the nature of the intersecting private road or driveway, the turn cannot be made from the specified lane of approach, the turn shall be made with due regard for all other traffic."

If the cops didn't complete a traffic report, you can complete a voluntary one at this link (note the stipulations)

http://www.dot.wisconsin.gov/drivers/forms/mv4002.pdf

If your story is as easy as it sounds she violated the above infraction and is responsible for injuries and damages to you, which unfortunately is a civil issue. If she was a responsible person she'd pay up..if she's of the entitled type you may have to sue her or atleast have legal counsel said a notorized letter stating the intention to sue.

Good, I'm also definitely slow and crappy. I probably need new tires before I can hit any real trails, too. I just moved here, so I have no idea where anything is. Perhaps in a month or two we can get out for a ride, I don't mind going to the Oakland area

With pedals? Are you sure you weren't on the moon when you weighed it? Specs?

Edit: Found it. Very impressed! What's the retail cost of the build?

Judging from the pics, it looks like he ported & polished everything he could. Not to mention a 1pc seatpost and saddle .

I love the talking point but I wouldn't want to ride it in anything other than a very light crosswind.

left my decoding ring at home

CA relevant

" C Section 21801 Left Turn or U Turn
Left-Turn or U-Turn
21801. (a) The driver of a vehicle intending to turn to the left or to complete a U-turn upon a highway, or to turn left into public or private property, or an alley, shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles approaching from the opposite direction which are close enough to constitute a hazard at any time during the turning movement, and shall continue to yield the right-of-way to the approaching vehicles until the left turn or U-turn can be made with reasonable safety.
(b) A driver having yielded as prescribed in subdivision (a), and having given a signal when and as required by this code, may turn left or complete a U-turn, and the drivers of vehicles approaching the intersection or the entrance to the property or alley from the opposite direction shall yield the right-of-way to the turning vehicle.

that was some ridiculous decoding haha, yes i graduated from ucsb last year.

DRAGON, thank you very much for your time. basically she was not interested in paying for my bike and helmet, which was all i wanted. but i did have a police report of the accident and went the legal route yesterday. My father was just very hesitant in pushing this route because he sees how easily Americans choose to take advantage of these situations, both the victims and "ambulance chasers" as he says. but i do want money for my damages and the chiropractor i started visiting today, i REALLY do not want to screw this lady over horribly.
**also, i say private because this was all inside a gated community almost reaching home

thanks agian, wear a helmet!

You're not screwing her if you just want was damaged replaced. That's just fair, and she would expect you to pay for the damage to her car if it had been your fault, wouldn't she?

Regarding the 29er tire discussion, the Maxxis Ignitor and the WTB Bronson both seem to offer alot of rear tire bite at a narrow width. (29")
If mud is a big concern, I'm running the Schwalbe Fat Albert 2.2 on the rear of my 26" 6" bike. VERY impressive mud clearance and traction for a narrow tire, and reinforced sidewalls that have yet to yield a flat (tall center paddles). I'd try it on a 29er for certain, fwiw.

(Kenda is doing the nevegal a disservice by not offering better sidewalls. The tread has got to be one of the best ever. )

Final build list with weights of each part


While this is a new frame and a few other new parts I've been riding a sub- 9 lbs bike as a daily driver for several years now with no problems. I do probably 150 miles per week on these bikes. Here is my last one before I go hit by a car.


After being hit by car.

That's right after I got hit by a car.

Why ride an 8 pound bike? It's more fun, and it's my hobby to build them. That's like asking why choose a 1500 lbs car vs a 3000lbs car.

Sorry I missed this. I really like the wheels, definitely a HUGE improvement over the original wheels. I narrowed it down to these and the Ksyrium SL and since everyone and their mom has the Ksyriums I chose these. Durability was already tested when I was taken down fairly hard by another rider last year. His pedal ended up tangled in my front wheel and the only damage was one bent spoke.

For my next road bike (hopefully this Spring) I want to go with a newer steel frame with all quality components like the Raleigh International.

For my next road bike, I want rack and fender braze-ons and either mini-v type cantilevers or disc brakes, with clearance for fatter winter tires. It should be a fast commuter bike with wet/cold weather stopping power.

I feel the same about the red cables, but would have to see how it rides and if it really bugged me that much.

I ride a 58, but they only come in 57 and 59. Which direction should I go if I decide to pull the trigger? Smaller or larger? I would imagine larger.

the crashed bike is a 58, but i also ride a 60 at times. i would really try both out if you can.
also dont worry about the cable housing you can change that whenever.
whats the price on that thing? probably some serious $$

nhluhr, have you looked into surly at all? make a lot of cool hybrid stuff at a decent price

Once again, here's the answer:

Mine started out with that frame and I did an all Ultegra drivetrain and BB7 road brakes.

I would be buying it through an industry hookup, so I wouldn't get a chance to check them out unless I could find one at a dealer which is probably tough since it's a $5k retail.

Raleigh also makes the Record Ace which has Ultegra, but the other components (especially wheels) are not as nice: http://www.raleighusa.com/archive/20...record-ace-11/

Gotta see where the finances are in a few months. I definitely want to get out on some longer rides and need something that fits with a more upright geometry while still being able to go fast.
