So was that you ... who clipped the ugly end of a pick up truck at the bottom of Lewisham Hill Last night?

If so, all I can say is, "hope the Jacobs are okay"....actually I could also say "man you have a good pace", which would be kinder I guess.

now, about that head cam footage.........

My cam didnt show as much detail (including the "splat" sound that his bars made when they shattered the rear light cluster).

He seemed fine and rode my route for another 4 or so miles at a great pace, so not injured or damaged...seemed like a nice chap as well

Embarrassment meant he put the pace on to get away from you. :angry:

Yeah, nice to see you too! I saw your posture on the bike, that's how I recognised you.

LOL! It's very head up, and with an unusally straight/slightly concave back. I guess that strikes my eye more because good technique on skates would ask for a slightly convex back, arched a little like an angry kitty. No comment on whether it's good or not on a bike.

Yeah, in skating that posture would almost certainly result in back pain. It's somewhat similar to cycling in the way power is put through your body, but not entirely.
