So I just got a brand new bike last week and managed to bend a wheel on the very first ride. The wheel is beyond being able to be trued.
The bike is an Airborne New Goblin with WTB Speeddisc i19 wheels. I'm a bit of a Clyde at 235 and I ride with a camelback. Is this something that I am going to have to fight regularly or was this just bad luck?
It bent on a fall, but it was pretty minor. I just let the wheel catch on the side of a heavily rutted single track and it yanked the wheel and dumped me. I came off and landed on my feet despite having been clipped on. But the wheel is toast.
What do you all think?
