so after 24 hours of WD-40, the freewheel stopped binding. but shortly thereafter, it also stopped engaging; now it spins both ways. can't fucking win with this shit. got to move beyond bicycle technology; it sucks rocks.

almost fucking killed myself today tooling down B street with the drysuit in a box for shipping back to the seller. the box was in a big duffel, which started rubbing against the rear wheel. when I figured that out, I swung it up and over the handlebars. promptly I lost control of the bicycle and swung out into the traffic lane. luckily no cars were passing by, so I'm still alive, but my sandal was ripped off by the force of my foot striking the pavement, my left sock was ripped to shreds, and my big toe has a nasty scrape.
