- I'm a complete tool
So here I am writing this in a pit of gloom with my face in my hand slowly shaking my head at my sheer stupidity. Why?
I just built up a new (old) bike and took it for a spin and in a moment of unimaginable madness managed to completely destroy the back wheel… First ride!
The bike is an old santacruz chameleon and it’s great (from the half hour I’ve ridden it). But I got a bit carried away and after riding bmx for the last year and a bit I thought I’d just try a quick 360? Almost made too but came up a little short and in doing so trashed the light weight MTB wheel. Just couldn’t tell you what I was thinking but now I realise it’s because I’m a complete tool.
Anyone got a 26″ back wheel for sale please?Posted 3 years agodonksMember
I would add pic but it involves uploading to Flickr or another and I forget all the blasted passwords… It’s bent to the chain stays to the point where I had to carry it half a mile home 🙁Posted 3 years ago
I’ll stick to the bmx for tricks in future! You just forget how robust they are….. Still from the brief time on the chameleon I can tell its a real blast, kind of akin to riding a big bmx , just not as built proof.
