Well this bike is dead, thanks to a white van on the old kent road.

Oh, Edmund, can it be true, that I hold here in my mortal hand a nugget of purest green?

White van turned right in front of me on the Old kent road about a 3 weeks ago. I hit the front of his van doing 25mph.
I got two witnesses, both are saying the vans fault.
Now on a hire bike @ £144 a day and my insurance is going to the 3rd party for full costs.
I had a week off with cuts and bruising but ok now.
Bit gutted as I have lost my bike.
Bike was a 2016 version worth about 8k, but repair has come back as 10.5k, so looks as if i will never see it again. :(

Nightmare, but you are OK that's the main thing, hopefully they deal with it expediently and are fair with the value.
