Reader: Ungrateful rider almost squashed flat by Texas truck

The wheels are still turning over our Cruiser bikes suck/Cruiser bikes rule debate, with aesthetes and athletes alike weighing in on the debate.

And the discussion isn't limited to cruisers.

Says Uncle Scam:

On my ride to work today, I saw a guy riding in the wrong lane on a Walmart mountain bike. A big truck with Texas plates turned right and almost hit him, the guy looked at me a yelled, "Son of a Bitch." I said, "Dude, you're riding in the wrong lane against traffic." He flipped me off.
