    Pulled up at the lights behind 2 or 3 other cars and waited. A mouth breather pulled in behind me and was clearly unhappy with my primary position, honking and shouting to get out the road. We're still not moving at red light. I turned to ask what was up and he drove car into the back of my bike. Not much impact but enough to buckle my mudguard up. Got my phone out and snapped some pics then moved to side of road to fix mudguard so wheel would turn again. Knobface drove off, no surprise. Very disappointed by other drivers, who must've witnessed, swearing at me as they drove off. Team car delayed by self righteous cyclist I guess.
    Reported it police, forwarded photos and they've got back saying the will review CCTV next week. It's a big city centre junction with cameras, so maybe it'll be on there. I have low expectations of what'll happen but needed reporting.
    All so unnecessary, and leaves me further disappointed in humans.

    Went to the shop this afternoon, had chat with laddo, we've kissed and made up. Hopefully the end of it. It's been good to reflect on my own behaviour, i need to let more of it go and stop trying to police the road -calling out close passers and mobile users. We'll see

    I got the reg and rang it through to 101. I've since realised the driver is the son of the local corner shop owner. Guess I'll pop round for a chat with dad tomorrow

    Properly lost my shit today. Coming back from the park with my three year old on a seat behind me on a 20mph residential street, almost right outside my house, car drives straight at me head on, at speed, just missed. I offload some strong abuse in their direction. Two youths get out 19/20 year olds and start threatening (to fire bomb my house) and trying to fight me. They've then ridden round the block a few times to try and see where I live, we get into it again round the corner.
    I'm not proud of my reaction at all. Definitely escalated it and put me and son in a dangerous situation. Stupid thing is, if I was on my own I might've let it go, zen cyclist and all that. 40 years old, two kids, still learning

    Hope the LFGSS detectives can shine some light on my bikes origins.
    I believe it was a custom build from Argos in Bristol, but I don't have a frame number so they can't give me any more info.
    Frame is 531 Reynolds steel but don't know what from.
    Any ideas?
