I think it would've been a lot more gory if it hit a Ksyrium SL bladed-spoke wheelset…

It's well known that squirrels, like drivers, have it out for roadies.

I like how the squirrel appears to be hanging on to the cable for dear life. Maybe they need to design a fork with rear-facing blades on it. Chop chop!

I totally killed a chipmunk at Whistler this year.. It ran out right in front of me on In Deep, or Duffman, and I ran right over it.. poor little guy..

Is there a Vancouver in Taiwan?! I had no idea!!

Nothing sums up my life's achievements like my stuffed corpse, suplexing a cougar.

Ohh, did Trek warranty the fork?

In the Don this summer came around a blind corner and ran over a Marmot. Funny part was when I stopped to move the victim, he got up shook himself off then moved into the shrubbery.

Take a wheelset with spokes like the Sapim CX-Ray, or Mavic blades to a knife sharpening shop… I wonder if they could give you 20 razor-sharp spokes without compromising strength.

They should accept that for warranty:
