This is the weirdest thing that happened to me and my bike. I stopped at Douds for a pit stop. Since my recumbent doesn’t do well with the stretched cable bike stand, I looked for something to lean my bike on.
A street / stop sign looked like a good place. Wrong! I leaned my 19 pound bike against the stop sign and it fell over taking my bike with it. I just stood there in disbelief saying “What . . . WHAT?” As I picked up my bike, locals came over to assess the problem. They teased me about my “heavy bike”. They were able to cut off the bottom of the sign pole and had it remounted in fifteen minutes. My bike seemed OK, so I guess it was no big deal. I feel like it could have been a Candid Camera set up. It certainly surprised me! Now I am pretesting the poles I lean my bike on.
