We’re not talking about some of the ugly colors seen on certain brands of mountain bikes in the last few years, this was an actual bomb.
I read in the news yesterday that in Kabul, a remote-controlled bomb was put on a bike and detonated, killing two people, and injuring 17 others.
This madness has got to stop. It’s bad enough that there’s been an ongoing blood feud between the Shimano vs Campagnolo roadies, and Shimano vs Sram mountain bikers. And I know there are still plenty of people out there that believe carbon fiber will fail catastrophically, possibly exploding as well. But a bomb on a bicycle? That is just wrong on so many levels. A bicycle is such a peaceful form of transportation, it’s a shame to see one being used to take innocent lives. Let’s hope this was a one-off.
