And here I was feeling bad for splitting up HeliMech's pair of wheels! Seems like everything worked out great!

I was heading down the hov on my way to work. The truck in front of me ran over something in the road and threw it back at me. I swerved and missid it with the front but the back clipped it. Still not sure what it was but it was solid. Bent the rear wheel and popped the tire. Cost me $161.00 for the tow but I was just glad to get off the road! Not much shoulder on that part of the hov. At least I didn't drop the bike, I was moving along pretty good, the back got pretty squirrley befor I got it stopped.

^^ Scary stuff! Glad you're ok. Sucks about the tire and rim, though. Especially because you can't pin it on someone else to pay for damages.

I am the undisputed king of destroying wheels.This will make my third full set. Killed both wheels hitting a pothole in 2009, then hit an open manhole cover the next year and took em both out again. Then last year hit another big pothole and took out the front. And today road debris took out the back. I need to just start keeping a spare set or two around...

....that, or try riding farther behind the car in front of you so you have a chance to see and swerve?

Still glad you are ok - man, those hits have GOT to hurt the boys.

Props to your riding ability! I would have thought an open manhole would take me out if I tried to ride over it.

What happens to ruined rims? Can u save the rotors at least? Or do you Turn those them into coffee table / night stands with a glass top? Never thought about it till now I guess...

I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.

It's a good thing I already have a habit of trying to avoid them.. here the manholes are sunken in a little bit more due to re asphalting over the years and some can create quite the bump

Damn the luck. I have heard of people that can fix bent rims. Any chance of getting bent ones fixed to keep as spares?
