48hole laced to an odyssey hazard v3...

I did this while grinding today. Also popped two tires, had to buy some heavy duty bell tire from walmart. 4mm thick outer wall, im not complaining. Lol im not sure if this link will work for you guys, im currently on my phone and it wont let me post pictures. It looks a lot worse in person, trust me.

Dent went through both of the walls, so yes its the tire. Im not even sure what to do about it.like do i patch it with something or...

I would not even have that together right now, that's asking for a quick flat tire!

If anything, put like something sorta of thin but also hard in the way of the rim & tube. Really not sure what though offhand, but even then only ride that if you need to & until you get this sorted out. Contact G-Sport asap & see if they can do anything, they should.

Here's mine, not as bad thoughPhoto

Well what should i di then... Take it apart and do what...?

let the air out definitely, then take it off your rim. You could try putting a small piece of cardboard right in that area to stop the tube from popping out, but even then I wouldn't advise that cause it could slip or somehow rip though.


Another thing you could do is file down the sharp edges & do the cardboard thing, but idk if G-Sport would void the warranty or not if you did that so yeah.

Tires not popping out, only the tire. I rode it all day today with it, held up fine. Maybe ill give gsport a call, see what they can do.

Meant tube isnt popping out, only tire.

|

3/18/2014 10:17 PM

Well if it's just the tire it's not as bad, but still bad. I'd still cover it with something though if you really wanna ride it, but be advised that can ruin the tire AND tube

Planning on putting electric tape on the rim where the rim tape is and on the wall of the hole. Then refill the tire, and fill the hole with caux from the outside. Not a great fix, just dont want junk in there yaknow.

Was doing double pegs and attempting feebles for like ten minutes straight, went onto the half pipe, looked at my wheel, noticed this huge ass hole. All i fucked up on was feebling, double pegs were smooth.

Am I seeing that right? Is that hole through the square edge of the rim? If so, I'd be afraid of wadding that rim up like a piece of tinfoil.
A flat piece of sheet metal is pretty flimsy but if you bend that piece of metal it stiffens up and becomes structurally rigid. If you put a hole in that bend it's going to lose that rigidity and that's what has happened to your rim. If it was mine I wouldn't be riding it.

Brand new or not, there is no fixing that. I'd contact GSport and see if they will warranty it.
Don't bondo it! Bondo will do nothing more than fill the hole. It won't make the rim structurally sound again. It's your safety at risk but my advice is to replace the rim.

If anything I think the sidewall itself would slowly begin to split off the rim right there. I definitely wouldn't run it. Hit up Gsport. Surely theyll hook you up.

G will warranty it.

I've seen this a few times before and I believe it's caused by the relatively hard aluminum alloy. Most likely makes it easier for the rim to shear like that.
