    WTF is Vera Tera?

    MY Nevada 1.6 29er has this garbage.

    My rim bent recently going over normal humps on asphalt. Can't even hold my 250 pound body weight.

    I googled it and nothing to be found.

    I concluded TREK has to be a much better brand since they use a bontragger.

    I have vera tera rims on my Fuji and there holding up superbly. I hit rocks and stumps all the time. That being said I know faulty stuff can happen and Bontragger is not exempt. Also in a lot of cases you pay more for a trek with less features or lower level components. but to each there own.
    Love my FUJI!!!

    If the rim bent, either there is not enough air in the tires, or the spokes were not properly tensioned. The strength of the rim begins with the spokes.

    Bontrager is Trek's brand, that's why Trek has it all over their bikes.
