Well it looks like my last trip to Colorado caused my front wheel to become a casualty so I'm looking for another one. Going around some twisties about 60 or so, my rear tire broke loose, then grabbed the road again throwing me to the right and up the side of a mountain.
I held on and corrected the path of the bike back to the road but unfortunately hit a large rock on my way to recovery. Thankfully, the tire bead held and all was well, except for the rim. I don't know what caused the rear to break loose as they are Avon Distanzas and are really sticky. I must have hit a small rock during the turn in, causing a temporary loss of road contact.
Things could have turned out a whole lot worse. Everything else on the bike is fine.
So, if anyone has one or Knows of one please let me know. Looking for used, not new.
