    Trashed my front wheel :(

    So I was riding my Raleigh home, and I hit a rock at 34 mph...blew both tubulars (SHREDDED the front), and trashed my front rim - dented it 1/2" or more inward, and threw it so far out of true that I could barely push it home. Kept it upright and didn't biff it though. Poop. Anyone have a Mavic Competition du Monde rim they want to part with?

    Yeah, I'm fine. Nice thing about tubulars - the bike stays controllable. I kept the shiny side up, and didn't have a problem coming to a stop.

    I have one, but it might be more trouble than it's worth. Looks well used. It's laced to a Normandy HF front hub, is slightly out of true laterally, and has a small hop. Free for the price of shipping. I've also got a Fiamme red label and Fiamme yellow label in much better cosmetic shape (can't attest to roundness as they are unlaced).
