    So I rode down to the bar with my friend on his Miyata conversion, me on the ol' Azuki. My girlfriend broke up with me and I was (still am) in a horrible state of mind. I had a Dirty Bastard (8.3%), Brassworks (6.0%) and an IPA (7.2%) and then we saddled up to ride home. I was probably well-buzzed. Coming to a t-intersection, I was being all distracted, and ran straight into my friend as he turned really fast in front of me, which wouldn't have been a problem if I was watching where I was going and wasn't being so emo.

    Clipped a pedal, went down on my left side, messed up my knee and elbow, got up and went to ride and noticed the front wheel was rubbing. No biggie cause I can undo the brake. Well, turns out, the wheel is bad to the point its rubbing on the fender! Had to walk the bike a lot of the way home on the big hills. Anyways, the wheel is a beautiful anodized red MA3 on a Velocity track hub, so if I can't true this out it will be tragic. Please keep the wheel in your thoughts and prayers and ask God to be with my red spoke wrench.

    a deep v wouldn't have noticed.

    that's what you get for being emo. hah.

    anyway, hope it's okay...that sounds pretty bad, it might need to be banged back into shape. if only i could remember the thread about that...slamming tacoed wheels back into shape.
    have:ea50 flats, black, light, stiff.
    144 bcd 3/32" 49t sugino track chainring, possibly 75.

    want: risers, light, stiff, 1", black if that can be
    144 bcd 46t or 47t chainring any kind or width
