    Couple of tweaks with a spoke key and that’ll be right.

    Wrong tyres for the berm.

    That happened to me shortly after I bought my first mountain bike. The bike shop were convinced I must have been doing something insane (I wasn’t). I’m pretty sure it was a warranty issue but I never got any money back (bastards).

    Was that useful?

    Sweat or condensation on your camera lens. You should wipe the lens before taking a picture. Also, best to have the light behind you when taking a photo.

    Were your valves & tyre logos lined up correctly?

    Thinking about it, I reckon it needs attacking with toothpaste

    Perhaps I should’ve used the Flash…

    Speaking of No Flash, no reptilians were harmed in the making of this extreme GNAR

    I am no expert but I reckon that may be knackered.

    Suffice to say if you knew the full extent of my riding skillz you’d be jealous, but after a while, I got bored of arguing about wheel sizes and brand fashions, so decided to focus instead on issues of global importance.
    But aye, if you’re about Mid Wales and want to shred, holla

    & you said you were good???

    MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    I think I’ll call my granny before I cal you!…

    (Joke – you may well be able to shred the gnar better than I …)

    Right, that’s it, I challenge you and your granny to a shred off…

    (can you lend me a wheel?)

    Shane Sutton reckons your arse is to big…

    Makes sense… Big arse + ultra low BB = path of destruction

    Normally it’s berms get destroyed, but I guess every once in a while, they fight back

    is it a sticker?

    Never use Salvador Dali rims. 🙂

    So, I was speeding along and compressed into a tight berm with full committment…

    Is it a Bontrager rim by chance??

    Nope, but it is a very fancy wheel… though the sponsors have yet to beat my door down, I’m hesitant to name and shame, as until now, it has held up well to abuse considering how light it is and how heavy I am.

    Has the bloke who started that one (and also used to repeatedly begin threads with “We in the shop think that…”) been back recently or is he still hiding from the shame?

    This effect has been created by smoke (from contrails) and mirrors. Its fake or possibly some kind of conspiracy..
    When in fact the wheel is straight, has always been straight and will always be. They are just making us believe its the berms and gnarr skillz that are to blame in making you belive that JRA will bend rims at will…

    Alien forcefield.

    CFH is wrong, everyone knows that if it was the Lizard People putting the forcefield there your wheel would have bent to the left.

    Got a pic?

    Looks like a lovely Xmas shot, were you trying for new wheels from Santa?

    Hell no, not waiting that long; on top of that, there’s a fair bet I’m on his naughty list.

    Strangely enough on the day I did it, I had in mind to destroy a wheel, but was trying for the rear one, so I could pilfer the hub to build a shiny new one. However, despite having a crack at one of the eyelets for nigh on 4 years, I’ve yet to cause any further damage, in some very challenging conditions.

    If you’re after lightweight, bombproof 26″ rims, Halo 4XRs are darned tough, unlike my fancy front wheel.

    I was going for a crappy visual gag

    Sorry dude, a touch too subtle for me on this occasion…

    I was going for innuendo:
