    In Canada, watch out where you lock your bike up, the snow plow might get it!

    I believe a snow plow pushed the snow onto the bike and caused the damgae

    I expect the plow blade itself was more responsible.

    I can see deep within the picture to the actual place on the rim where the corner of the plow blade caught it, and from there, using a vast understanding of physical laws, forces, and angles, determine not only which direction the plow was going, but also what other damage occurred to the bike as a result.

    I know. It's hard to be humble with this kind of knowledge just waiting for a chance to be demonstrated.

    We had a late March 8" snowfall with 30 to 40 mph winds in by senior year living in married student apartments. The parking lot was beside a rail road embankment that was about 15 feet above grade and at almost a right angle to the wind. So My MGB was buried in 8' sloping to 12' of snow drift. The university plow operators were known to hit snow-buried cars so I dug out the back 2 feet of the car so it would not get the bicycle treatment shown in the first post above. Seems like snow plow drivers have not changed in forty years.

    Maybe don't let you bike be buried under 3' of snow?
