Still scratching my head if it was purely operator error, or if I had a funked rim. Smallish creek gap (15' maybe) with a square edge landing made of rocks. When I landed, I heard a crunch, didn't feel bad at all. I stopped to see what that crunch sound was, just peeked back and saw my tire and tube were still all good, checked out the landing jump and saw my tire mark on the top. All seemed well and fine, so I rode the rest of the way down. My buddy pointed out I had a flat spot in my rim at the bottom. That's when we discovered this monstrosity. Best part is: it's my first time on the DH bike in 2 months and it was all smiles.
I will say that the Kenda DH tubes are the toughest thing I have seen. I run them on my bike and have actually heard my rim hit a rock and thought oh sh*t......just kept on rolling. I think you may have gotten a faulty one that bent your wheel
