  1. Did this early last year. My Cannondale Six died at West Ryde Woolies carpark after it hit the entry while on my girlfriends car (you can still see two strike marks on the concrete where my Chorus levers made contact). Whole rack was ripped off the roof. Devastating, expensive, and stupid!

    Had a friend do the same, and heard other sympathetic stories of friends of friends killing bikes this way. More common than you think.

    Feel for this guy, not much can be salvaged from that Teschner on the right in the photo.
