alright so i was coming home from a ride last night, and on my way home bunnyhopping up,down, and over diffrent things, when on the last thing i bunny hopped i apreantly wasnt going fast enough, or didnt get enough highet, im not sure, but my rear wheel slamed into the edge of it, now im not sure if any serious damage was done, so far i think its ok, but if something did go wrong, what would it be? (so i know what to look for) i.e- Hub, rotor, ect ect.

well the tire is a little warped, but im pretty sure that was like that before lol, so the awnser to that is get it trued... no problem, the thing that worried me most was right after it happend there as a ... i geuss squeeking, more of a screeching from the read hub/rotor area, so i thought i may have damaged my hub, but the sound is gone now...

Watch for a pinch flat or a flatspot on the rim.
I was looking for about 15minutes after i got inside, i couldnt really see any, though the light wasnt the greatest to check (was about 12 at night with a not-so-bright light) i was actually just about to check again

I did the same thing as you a while ago on my crap bike, and got a pinch flat, dented and warped the rim, and broke the axle. I didn't even realize I'd broken the axle until I took the wheel into the shop later to have them check it out. So yeah, check for that too.

well I took her for a ride today, everything seemed alright (despite being stuck in 1-9 for other reasons... broken rear shifter). The rim is warped, pretty bad but as i said in an earlier post im pretty sure thats from other reasons... im going to get new shifters soon, so while im there im going to talk to the guy at my LBS see if he wont tear down my rear end and take a look for me
