I crashed my bicycle & now the wheel is too close to the frame.?
The fork doesn't seem bent. I can't turn my handle bars because the wheel rubs against my feet. I ran into a pole. I wasn't going to fast.
Im taking to the bike shop. No need to be a mean human. Im asking on here anyway.

Are you just describing the results of your crash or are you asking a question? You don't have to be going very fast to ruin your bike with a head-on crash. Just like a car. It might be fixable, but modern bike makers like aluminum and plastic frames because they cannot be straightened, only replaced.

Presumably you are asking for advice on fixing this. Try posting again with a picture of the damaged area. Does the wheel rotate freely or does it or the tyre rub against the frame, brakes or mudguard? If in doubt take it to a professional bike shop and het it fixed properly.

Jib Jab gave a very good comparison. And you're criticizing him? 99.9% of all questions asked in the cycling section can be answered in five words. Go to a bicycle shop. In short...the internet won't fix your bike. See link... https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/proxy/z6QzYh2I5h...

I'm not trying to insult you but generally those who have to ask lack the skill and/or tools to do the repairs. Go to a reputable bicycle shop. All too often the unskilled will do even more damage trying to do a repair.Source(s): Motorized Bicycle Owner and Builder.

Remove wheel. then put it back. Still no good? Go to a bike shop for a proper repair.
