After many whacks

After many whacks, not perfect, but that will have to do.

 

Flat spotted rim, what happens when you land hard with too much weight on the rear wheel instead of flat, and land on a metal support wall instead of on the grass when doing urban mtb drop in the city plaza.

The rim was so much bent inwards I had to use a hammer to get it back into shame, it needed many hard whacks, but it's probably new rim time soon.

 

The area of impact is bulged, also a bulge near a spoke hole.

 

I am not sure if pressure was at 16 psi or it went down to 16psi on impact, which I think could have happen, cus I did not notice pressure being too low when riding, but after the impact I did not ride hard, but after a while of riding after the rim started to feel horrible it hor worse, spokes got very loose, and wheel was very bumpy.

 

this is where I did this: flic.kr/p/2jt7CJa
