    Another bike hit my front wheel, any damage?

    Today i was riding my bike. Suddenyl another bike was coming from the front very fast, he pulled his brakes and his biked turned to side and hit my front wheel very violently. (a direct hit not from the side)... i checked my wheel but there is no untrueing..

    Besides that i dont see any damage in anywhere, but you think his impact might damage the front hub or maybe fork ends where the wheel is attached? but i dont feel anything.

    If the wheel seems straight and undamaged then the fork is probably ok. The hub is fine.
    Get a second opinion from a shop if you are worried.

    actually, I have seen bikes that have crashed head on into objects; where the wheel was perfectly lined up on impact so that there was no untruing (wheels are very strong vertically) and all the force transferred directly to bending the fork/frame.....
