Can bikes read thoughts?

Methinks my bike knows it's about to be replaced. Coming home tonight, shifted into top and stood out of the saddle to honk some speed on and THOK, a spoke snaps in the rear wheel. Instant whip in the rim and dragging brake, stop to unlatch the brake and a slower ride home than I'd like :biggrin: I was discussing new bikes earlier today with a colleague who is Cyclescheming with me this year, do you think my bike read our thought waves and said to itself "right, I'll have you you barsteward!" ? :becool: :laugh:

My bike can't read my thoughts because if it could it would go a lot quicker and makes the hills a lot easier for me.

Yes, they can, especially when threatened with being sold or scrapped. I've had similar problems every time I've gone that way so it's the only possible explanation!
