This morning I went ahead and put my mountain bike skin-side down after coming into a rock garden way too hot. I shot for the moon and landed among the rocks.
I also put the handlebar into the ground hard enough to bend the brake lever, it’s bent downward from the lateral almost like a torsion.
Long story short, I do not see any leaking fluid or anything like that, but rear braking performance seems to be affected. Does this make sense or is it all in my head?
