Found: Rear wheel on C-470
To retrieve your wheel you will have to do the following:
1) PM Me
2) Describe wheel
3) Tell me how in the hell you managed to lose a rear wheel on the highway
4) Bring an offering in the form of a 24oz can of cheap beer - I almost lost my life trying to rescue this thing. Dumb dumb dumb.
That is all.
Was that the one I saw on Friday laying against the concrete median southbound? I can't believe it rolled off and landed nicely upright there.
If so, why, REAR wheel? And wow, to go off and rescue it is a life threatening experience.
If it's and Edge Composite 29er it is mine.
That's the one. Looking at it, there's no damage that would scream "Hey, I fell from a car going 70 MPH". The rear aspect is perplexing. I need to know but then again, curiosity is what almost killed this cat last time.. I seriously under-estimated the risk involved. Impulse struck and the traffic looked light at the time. Never again.

I didn't see the truck behind me swerve, so, do the math. It was a front wheel so it all made some sort of sense.

I can't seem to get that scene in Bowfinger out of my mind now, the one w/ E. Murphy crossing the interstate. I imagine you were just about as scared.

Quick bump because I could use that beer. Soon to be causality of finder's, keeper's.
BTW - Had to watch some youtube clips of Bowfinger after your comment. It was funny but revived a little PTSD.
