Most of the world’s professional skateboarders aren’t particularly interested in competing in the Olympics, for many, competition skateboarding would water down their image… this leaves kids who have been coached from a young age to compete. This is more obvious in the women’s group because there are less women involved in skateboarding to begin with and so there are less ‘willing participants’ aged in the older bracket you mentioned, they probably also have to think even harder about whether it is worth risking their hard-won reputation in a male-dominated activity.
It is incredibly minor to be honest - more worried about breaking a spoke and it hitting the closer side of the fork.
Frame is Columbus Max with matching fork, not sure how easy finding a suitable replacement would be.
Sorry - steel.
As above - the wheel is closer to one fork blade whichever way round it is placed in the fork.
Is this an easy fix? How clued up does a shop need to be to do it properly?
I am due to be riding London > Malaga in two weeks so not great timing!!
Can collect in London :)
