It's alright guys, I'm sure all of OldOllie's friends at fox news agree 100% with his views on global warming. That must mean he's correct, right?

He's also apparently like monk or one of those other detectives who have superhuman perceptions, because he can tell us without a doubt, no ifs or maybes, exactly what happened here. His explanation is just the only possible way it can be, since just like with his ironclad beliefs on global warming, he's correct at all times. Any person who says otherwise must be the one who's a crackpot.

It's alright, I'm sure in a few years when they make a movie about him documenting his life as the untouchable genius he is he'll really show us how clever he is and we'll all feel rather silly, now won't we? I mean, surely someone as erudite as him couldn't simply be a worthless deluded loser who takes to the internet since people there are less able to recognize complete joke he is, right?

@OldOllie sorry for believing in something that 99.99999999% of real scientists believe is real.

So you call people gullible, but you believe global warming is a conspiracy.

I still think this is bullpoo, because even if cars today are crap, they're not that crappy.

At first I couldn't believe how many people actually think the damage to the front end of this car was actually done by a bicycle wheel that was only slightly bent.

Then I considered all your other crackpot opinions and thought, anyone who is stupid enough to believe that you can actually raise the temperature of the earth by using incandescent light bulbs would also believe you could actually cave in the front end of a 2,000-lb. car with a 20-lb. bicycle with virtually no damage to the bicycle.

I hate to see you all making fools of yourselves talking about "crumple zones" and such, so let me explain this one more time. The car hit something substantial, like a concrete-filled steel post. Then somebody rolled his bicycle tire into the gash and took a picture of it. Then he uploaded it to the Internet, someone from here saw it, and posted it. Then a bunch of gullible fools actually fell for it.

Looks like it's just Swash, Palfas, CoyoteKing, and me

May it's just a really well made bike?

As CoyoteKing pointed out, if this really was a crumple zone, it shouldn't crumple with such a low impact, other wise it would be useless in a real collision.

How ever, it's my thought that it's just a body panel covering a gap between the wheel well, engine compartment, and grill area; more or less empty space.

Pic looks real based on the bike tire. Those panels on the little light weight cars are that cheap too.

That would be the issue with crumple zones. I like older cars without them, feel so much safer in a car you know won't end up wrapped around you. Specially if goes up against a newer car.

I don't believe it's fake. Look at the distortion of the back wheel of the bike. But what we can't see is the front of the bike which is probably wedged into a very sturdy bike rack. This makes the bike become a very sturdy metal frame jutting out, and a bike frame is as strong as hell (as are the wheels), just watch a down hill mountain bike for example, bikes are designed to take massive force. Car bumpers however are designed to crumple.

If a crumple zone collapses that dramatically from an impact like that, somehow I don't think it's actually absorbing much of the energy.

Fancy, just what IS the deal with all these retarded posts that pose questions which are obviously the opposite of what has really happened? Modern cars have crumple zones. If you smoked less weed and got out a bit more in the real world you would know that. Also, your crappy website would maybe, just MAYBE, be a tiny bit less boring.

Light materials work better for cars. They aren't DESIGNED to be able to wreck other stuff via crashing. They are designed to absorb as much of the energy into the vehicle upon crashing. The more energy the vehicle absorbs, the less energy you absorb.

So thank you, car industry, for making crunchy cars for my safety.

Fwoggie2, I'm about as proud of the Volt as you were of the Trabant. Both are/were the products of government command and control.

BTW, since no one seems to have figured this out, the car obviously hit something much more substantial than a bike tire -- something like a concrete-filled metal post -- and the bike was later moved into position for the picture.

@sarahofborg: what bluevayero said. but understand the science of it. the increased ease at which it crumples then the less effective it is. the crumple zones are there to absorb a portion of the energy from impact. if the zone is crumpling to this extreme from such a small impact then it wouldn't provided much if any real kind of impact energy absorption during a real car to car or car and stationary hard object collision. its poor engineering on the car makers for sure.

OldOllie - *sigh*. What's wrong with the Chevrolet Volt for example. Be proud of what your country produces. They are here in Germany.

@sarahofborg weeelll a crumple zone is supposed to absorb collision energy while crashing with a wall or another car. its no use getting so much damage from collisions with bikes cause in worse situations it would be completely destroyed at a crash with a car. it doesnt help with pedestrians either. its the hood that plays most of the part in that case

With a pic like that you'd be expecting more damage to the bike.

If anything that bike company should be proud of themselves and use this pic in their next ad.

Lulz, but there's a reason. It's called a crumple zone.
