Alex TD17 Outcome: not good

So I wake up from an evening nap, hustle down to tricks and drinks all excited to try out my new wheel, do one rock-walk and boom. My night is done.

One attempt, that's all it took. In comparison, my Velocity Fusion tied and soldered withstood several hours of learning how to do rock-walks and many many attempts. Now to be fair, I did land with my weight too far rearward and I'm not sure if I should really expect any 700c rim to hold up to that kind of side load, but all I know is that I was able to ride the shit out of that Fusion before it was finally taken out by another rider's front wheel.

The damage:



Because I'm a glutton for punishment I actually may build up another one, since I already have the spokes and the rim is so cheap, just to make sure that I didn't create some perfect storm of side load and am not unfairly writing off a rim that seems fairly reasonable for the application. But as of right now I don't know what I'm going to do. Perhaps lay off that trick until the Chukker becomes available, but as anyone who's ever been on the cusp of grasping a new trick knows, that's easier said than done.

I kind of feel like Cartman in that episode of SouthPark where he travels to the future because he can't stand waiting for the Nintendo Wii to come out. Velocity I need some Chukker's now!!!

my Alex G6000s have held up great. Maybe you can grab one to hold you over till the Chukker is released?

it was a rear that took the fusion out. I didn't blatantly just run into you, I promise

yes you did carney. I was there to witness the whole affair haha. Dude Jeff. I don't think its the rims. I think the stars are just aligned and they are determined to kill every wheelset you build for a while. Whats that 3 in 3 weeks?? no bueno sir no bueno. hahahaha
