Today I may have exceeded the capabilities of my bike, or my skills, or both probably. :facepalm:
What was marked as a Black trail on Trailforks started off easy, maybe too easy, as half way down it changed into a rocky rooty monster, cue a loud "thunk!" followed by a few "Twangs!" and then the bike lost speed rather quickly... looked down and the rear wheel had gone the shape of a Pringle and was jammed in the stays :(
Managed to bend it enough so it turns. Only 3 spokes broken, not sure if the rim will straighten up again though. Will have to get it repaired or replaced before next weekend!

Does that mean you'll be donning your parka and taking the scooter for a spin down to Brighton? :D
