DUDE! glad yer semi ok. I think a 40 kph collision is the equivelent of a second story tall fall so that's pretty heroic if you just got a bruise or two. Hope it's not a smashed sternum. Yowzer!

Hey Venus, that's a cool looking bike. Is this your first build? Very tidy.
I really like the funky geometry of the hooligan and its Uberstrong to boot.
