RIP

Sad news in the Cornfield household. Yesterday at around 11am we made our way to Maraetai for a long ride in the sun. I needed to go to the bathroom, and our usuals in Mt Eden were closed for repairs, so we thought we'd pop into Westfield Broadway and grab some muesli bars while we were there.

We turned in to the carpark, heard a sickening c-RUNCH and both realised at the same time what had happened. The roofracks are ruined, Eric's seat was twisted about 90 degrees, and his poor left carbon fork broke in two.

RIP, Eric the Strada. We will miss you.

Kate, Phil, and Derek-the-Strada

No, no, no, no, no!!! Oh Kate! I'm just so gutted for you. If that were Cleo I'd just be bawling my eyes out ....

Poor Eric. I would so have loved to have met him ...

It's all right. I'm sure Eric II will be just as nice!

oh crap! I've always thought those racks would be great, but would never buy one because I just KNOW I would do that!

UGH! How awful. This happened to my aunt too. Hopefully he'll get a nice new shiny one??
