Thank you, zip, I appreciate your voicing concern. ... I'm thinking of four things about this:
1) file a claim with the city for not fixing the streets. It's a real embarrassment that they let our streets get this bad. And;
2) see if I can figure out how to run TWO different rear wheels on this bike (maybe fronts, too), one narrow, and a second set with a much wider tire for when I have heavier loads. And;
3) changing my route(s) so I'm less likely in harms way from either road issues or cars. And;
4) upping my protective gear - such as gloves, maybe some kind of shoulder / arm protection from road-rash... The best protective gear a person can have saved my ass this time (with a dose of good luck); my almost instinctually doing the right thing regarding where to steer to avoid a crash to the ground.
Thanks again for your comment...
