I will just talk to myself here....the other day I cashed my back rim on one of those new jumps. Yep, landed sideways, ate it hard, and ended up with a snake shaped rim. Bummed. No cashola at the moment.

You have a back-up bike though, right?

Were you wearing a helmet at least this time?

Taco yes. Helmet no.


But it looked more like an "S" than a taco.  I don't know how you can bend them both directions in one crash but it happens.  I am looking for some heavy duty steel wheels now. That is what I used to ride when I was younger because I would always bend alloys and couldn't afford to keep buying them. I guess I just ain't that good at landing!!
The ones I used to ride had those big fat spokes--do you guys remember those??

They were seriously strong and weighed a ton. But it was either deal with the weight or drain the wallet.

I do have another bike I can ride. It is a friend of mines. I gave my 20" to my brother in law. But I am taking it easy on my friends Redline because it has alloy everything! Don't want to mess it up.

Yeah--I forgot about mags! The problem is that I have a 24" BMX trail cruiser.

I would snap up some 24" mags.
