Still nothing? I’m curious whether this was a suicide or failed brakes. Do police even bother checking the bikes after an incident like this?
About 10 years ago two girls got killed in an off-road bike crash, I believe due to faulty brakes, but at least in that case there was an analysis done in short order.
For the cycling community, it would also be helpful to know how to handle a brake failure situation. I know in my own case, since I live on a hill, I can bail into my own driveway or yard if the brakes fail in the first 100 feet, but that doesn’t help everyone else.
One of those posts said he came down Overbrook – a steep hill – and ran the red at 51 into heavy traffic. That’s not speculation, rather an honest question. If he wasn’t trying to off himself, did his brakes fail? Did anyone check that? Is that info not being released or does it not exist? I think that’s an honest question, too.
Sure, if the family wants info not to be released, I can accept that. But say so. AFAIK, there’s been nothing.
