How much abuse will my Torker LX 24 take?
hehe. Well, It's sorta too late already...
I was riding around at a nearby university (it was actually a really nice place to ride) and decided to hop some stairs. I suppose I should have done more research first, but I figured my uni could survive a couple 'bigger drops'. I side-hopped 4 steps down (maybe 2 ft vertical). I'll admit the landing was kinda sketchy -- the tire felt like it was gonna slip off the rim. As I rode off I could feel the tire rub against the frame (maybe the tire was a little misaligned?). Well, needless to say...
(see images below)
At least I landed it, right?
And to think I've only been riding it for little more than a month! (this gets me 'unicycle fanatic' pts though, right? :P)
So, is that bad? I can bend it back to some extent, right? If I bend it back, how long will my wheel last from there? If I have to replace it, do I have to buy a whole wheel, hub and everything? -or can save the hub and spokes?
p.s. Don't take the torker lx off of anything more than curbs. (I only weigh 70 kg/154 lbs)
