Another front wheel bites the dust
Driving to work, changing lanes on the freeway and hit a pot hole hard. Bike started to shimmy a bit . Got off the freeway and saw a nice dent in the front wheel. It held air so I limped it home. These pot wholes are between lanes near the expanision joints in the concrete bed. I can see how Cal Trans has been trying to fill them, but there are at least 5-6 unfilled.
850 for the rim.
Probabaly a new tire at 200.
Labor probably 2-3 hours. 200.
SO I'm guessing 1250 or so. I have a $500 deductible.
Hmmmm 3rd rim this summer.
