Default Re: So my bike tried to kill me

Due to traffic and road design I had no choice but to deal with a few pot holes on my beast a while back. They did nasty things to the back wheel. The last leg of the trip home the wheel felt bad under me, hard to describe but definately not right. It had loose spokes, a slight warp and it was out of round. I had to tighten up spokes, true it, and then make it round again. On the upside, I understand more about how to fix that now.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
