Downhill MTB wheel fail
I saw this on the FAILBlog and just thought it needed re-posting. Somehow I think the full face helmet is about to earn it’s keep!

I do hope that’s not an American Classic wheel though…


About the author

Matt is one of the founding Molefathers of the Muddymoles, and is the designer and main administrator of the website.

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years then a 2016 YT Industries Jeffsy 29er, he now rocks a Bird Aether 9 and a Pace RC-627.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.

    Full face helmet and head to toe white leather set-up. Pah! Wuss.

    I was there the day a MuddyMole did that to his wheel with no body armour on (as the Moles had shamed him into not wearing it by naming him after it). If I recall correctly, the Moles took it in turns to jump up and down on said wheel-wrecked-angle thing until it was sort of round again upon which the rider put it back on his bike and then rode home for several miles.
