In Toronto you have to call 311 and file a report.. but its pretty much impossible to recover a dime from the citySometimes you can go to the city/county/state and get re-imbursement for damage to your vehicle from their failure to maintain the roadway in a proper condition. It works in Seattle, WA. that way.
Totaled out my bike. Bent the frame so my insurance company wrote it off as a total loss. She’s only 2 months oldUgh, that wheel is garbage...maybe insurance will cover depending on your coverages.
Thank God only 35 mphWow, sorry to hear about the trouble. How fast were you going when you hit? Glad to see you keep it upright, well done!

i agree, imagine hitting a curb at 35mph and bending your frame… great testament to both the rider keeping it upright and the CF wheel durability. The wheel did exactly like it was designed, break apart graceful enough to give the rider a few moments to come to a controlled stop.I am not surprised at the rim damage considering the impact also bent the frame!!!
I think for all the talk of modern prowess our bikes are still made for a 'price' and weight is a key factor in design. Lower weight means thinner metals. they are certainly strong enough for average riding conditions and the odd mishap, but slamming into a fixed steel object? It probably wasn't bent much but doesn't take much to write off a bike with the repair costs these days.Dayum! Glad you're ok. How the h3ll did the frame get bent?
