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 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!" ?
