...on my DH bike. Am I ok to use it still or am I going to do more damage in the long run??

Only just realised it now and I have used the bike twice since I broke it (I had an off 3 weeks ago and back wheel hit off a rock but I didn't think it had done any damage apart from scratch the rim)

Can't get it fixed til after I've next been on my bike

Yeh, the spokes loosened (there were only 4 spokes with any tension in them) so the wheel's a bit f***ed. There's a ding in it too but that isn't too bad. The wheel's going straight back to the place which built it on monday. They're paying for collection, so I'm not complaining. Hopefully they'll rebuild it with a new rim.

I don't know. The build seemed good when it arrived but the spokes shouldn't loosen like that so I'd say yes.

I better get it back for the weekend because I'm going racing again. Very Happy

Where abouts is that mate? It's good to see that your parents support you so much for your biking, bet they're hoping you make it as a pro so they can make some money back off you Wink!!!!!


Yeah mate, Danny hart is racing it, so it'll be good to watch him absolutely smash the track lol. I presume he will have gotten over his injury by then
