The po of my bike (it only kad 3,020 miles on it when I bought it) had a gnarly get off that effed up the front rim. It held air fine and I even dragged a knee or two on it even though the bead seat was not always the best it seemed to hold fine and I really didnt notice any vibrations or funny handling characharistics until today. I went ahead and decided I will wait to Powder coat my new to me rims I bought and run them pink. (thats how I bought them). OMG.. yeah well needless to say I probably should have crashed or had a critical failure after riding my bike now with a good wheel.
