Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

My Rim Is In Trouble!

Took my NEW Kilo TT Pro for a ride to work this morning with stock everything. On a huge downhill I had a blowout in the front! I pumped my brakes and came to a stop. Upon inspection of the rim I found that there is a split in the weld area. Would I be able to contact Bikes Direct and get a new from wheel? Has anyone had a similar problem?

Bikes direct has a very clearly posted email adress. And you have to have an email adress to sign up for this forum, and to order from BD. So I cannot see why you would not be able to contact them.
