Today I saved a life

22 07 2014

And all it cost my friend is a beer. 5 bucks for a life, not a bad deal. You may be wondering what I did to save my friend’s life; did I pull him from a fire? No. Did I stop a gunman from shooting him? No.

I fixed the front brakes on his bicycle.

The front brakes on a bicycle¬†account for about 80% of maximum braking power. That’s a huge difference in stopping power if your front brakes are out! Can you imagine riding down a hill and having a stoplight change from green to red on you? Not a pretty picture. So yes, today I saved a life, zero cost for me except a few minutes.
