As you can see from the bend in the rim, I hit it good. Somehow I didn't pinch flat or damage the rotted 2000 mile plus cheap tire, go figure. I wont complain 27" steel rims are easy to fix, like electronic items you just hit them with a hammer till they work right.
And my long waited pedals for the Tandem! no more spds!! I know white really?? but $25 clearance is about what I'm willing to pay for pedals and they all end up brown in the end anyway.
