bent front rim? post #1
i was riding to school earlier and a lady didn't see me on the sidewalk and pulled out and hit me with her SUV. i was in shock and scared cause i was worried i broke something. after the adrenalin settled and i was able to sit down for a bit i looked at my bike and saw that it was fine and so once i saw i was fine i went home to straighten my handlebars. on my way back home i noticed that my front wheel seemed a bit wobbly. It looks like my rim might me bent just ever so slightly. Will it make a differnce (in other words, will it damage anything more) if i continue to ride on it? as i said, its only slightly bent

first of all- did you get her insurance information?! you might have been seriously hurt and not know it. you might have screwed up your spine and you will not know for years, when it acts up and it's too late to go after her insurance company. this is the voice of experience. when you are injured in a car accident, you need to get all the reimbursement you can for your injury. you will regret it later when you have problems with mobility, digestion, sexual disfunction, etc because your spinal column was damaged and you did not get it corrected by a chiropractor or physiotherapist.

you need to get her insurance company to pay for you to see a doctor and make sure everything is ok, then make her buy you a new front wheel.

concerning the wheel, if it's really bad, you need a new rim and probably some spokes. if it's just a little tweaked, you need to true it with a spoke wrench. not hard to do.

it looks just a lil tweaked so ill take it in to get trued (somehow i didnt even think about that, doh!) but i dont intend to sue this lady. I thought about it but i feel fine, my leg feels a little tweaked and thats it, plus she was real nice and honest about it and didnt look much older than me so i didnt want to put her through it. Maybe its just my personality, im very forgiving.

Well good for you, i don't know why people have the obsession with sueing. I think that you did the right thing for being forgiving, and not being an arsehole because thats what gives us a bad name. If you're nicer, they're generally gonna chat to all the people they know like "oh yeah i hit a boy on his bike today. he was O.K. though and really nice.." as opposed to "damn this little butthole flying down the road at mach 10, pulls out, and hits me!" peoples perception of events change in different situations
Trust me, i do psychology at school...
I'm COOL.

if this doesnt make sense
I'm sorry.

well she wasnt a soccer mom, she was a younger lady, looked like she just got out of school at the oldest, and she was clearly just as scared as i was.
