Rode 4.3 miles today. Decided to play around on the bmx track at the side of a paved trail on my hardtail. Which I have done before with no issues.
Today I guess the rear wheel wasn't having any of it! I heard spoke noises I looked it over everything seemed to be ok. Then it went away.
Later on down the trail under a bridge the bike got away from me and i crashed into a fence. Ripped my jacket, scratched my new fork!
Upon gathering myself I noticed when I looked down my rear tire looked funny. Son of a **** my rear wheel was bent to ****! Rode it home showered up and got ready for work.
Took it to the bike shop and they pretty much told me it's not fixable and had the mechanic start to show me new rims lol. Luckily I have a spare, disc compatible, non matching, Specialized/Sun Ringle heavy duty rim. I originally bought it for my bike build. GLAD I didn't sell it yet!
Bad day today! But I still got my ride in! Then I come to work and we're slammed! Got to eat my lunch just now 2.5 hours later.
At least it's my Friday today, I got my new tires in the mail, and I had spare parts to fix my problems.
