and then, in a second, my bike was destroyed

Toronto, 2014.09.23

The movie "Pay the Ghost" cost me my bike today when one of their truck drivers crushed it. I wish I had a camera on hand, the damage is far worse than I've ever seen in one of these events. The frame is cracked into three pieces. Miraculously, the ring-and-post survived unscathed. Also, my kryptonite lock, which bore enough weight to cause the chain stays to bend around it, survived intact. The lock still works!

Happily, the production company noticed me puttering with the thing and approached me. Looks like their insurance will be buying me a new bike. Goodbye, bike.
