Really? Again????

It happened again everybody... my bike got pushed over...

It just so happens that I started sharing a space with another person last month. Now they have a big ugly ass scratch from where my brake lever went into their gas tank and snapped in half.
When I saw it I said hey well thats alright its just a brake lever, im glad nothing else is wrong.
I went out today, hopped on and as I started to go forward I though something didnt feel right. Looked at my handlebars.
THE RIGHT SIDE OF MY THAR BARS IS BENT!


What makes it even better is that I basically have no money at all.

1. Does anybody have an extra brake lever that they have laying around that they would hold for me til I get a few dollars and can buy it off them?? Aftermarket, stock, short, long, I dont really care just something they would let go for cheap.

I think I have a stock set somewhere in my storage unit. I'm over in Centreville.

A replacement bar is on the way, no charge. I would recommend you charge the person who caused the damage $35.21 for the replacement, plus whatever the new brake lever costs. Maybe he will be more careful in the future, but don't bet on it.


By the way, the bar worked as designed in order to protect the clamp section.

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

Thanks for the offers on the stockers guys I really appreciate it.
I would love to flying elbow drop the person, but like the first time, I have no idea who tipped it over or why...


Thank you so much Rob, if everyone treated their customers like you do the world would be a better place.

does the car port area where you store the bike have polls? consider strapping the bike at least on the kickstand side to the poll so that it cant be tipped over as easy.

does the apartment complex have security cameras?

also what story of the apartment u live on? first... ride the bike and park it in your place... no joke.

There are no poles or anything to strap it to, and there arent any cameras either which sucks. I actually do live on the first floor and seeing as this is the second time this has happened im probably bringing the bike in, at least over the breaks.

Put an alarm on it? a DANG loud one? Maybe then, if you hear it go off, you can go running and catch a glimpse of whomever did it.

I'm going to guess that you don't have a centerstand or, if you have one, that you don't use it when parking for more than a couple of minutes. I've had problems with people accidentally or intentionally knocking over my bikes while they're on the sidestands, but never when the thing is up on the centerstand - it's much harder to knock over then.

Most common reason for a bike to get knocked over is someone not paying attention when parking, in my experience.

Make a freaking wheel chock and pad lock it twice or something. Trail camera?

I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.

I always keep my bike in gear and both times its been down its been on the right side and unfortunately I don't have anything to lock it too. I guess an alarm is probably the best thing to have here. Anybody have an positive experiences with any? Especially really really loud ones.
