Why would you ride in the rain?

dude dont get chrome rims if your riding in rain. the rain water has a chemical reaction with the chrome, which causes it to give off a toxic gas that will make you sick if inhaled; its really corrosive too, so it makes your rim flake, and if you touch the flakes, or they get in contact with your skin, you risk death/serious injury. I'd keep away from chrome rims. as a matter of fact, keep away from bikes, trust me. just get a scooter.

Science proves it.

NaCL4 + H2O => NaH2O - CL4

CL4 in this case being the Chromium Lacrimate ions that are formed due to contact with rainwater (H2O). Chromium Lacrimate is very toxic and is highly dangerous.

but if you ride a scooter, you dont have to deal with that problem. trust me, bikes are overrated anyway. companies DONT put rims through testing, wet and dry, to make sure nothing happens to them, and that they can withstand rain. last time i rode my chrome rim in the rain, it burst into a fireball of noxious gases/flames. trust me man, stay away from this shit. bmx isnt for everyone.

Where does the activation energy come from to bond the molecules together? With no activation energy, the two just sit next to each other and to nothing. As is the case with cyanide. Cyanide = CN- and there are both carbon and nitrogen abundant in the atmosphere. They need to be bonded together to be poisonous.

you just made my day with this post.

These guys are kidding.... Chrome rims will spontaneously combust and explode the world in rain.

I like tacoved's idea, let's all ride scooters.

the activation energy occurs as the rain water strikes the chrome surface, between the tempretures of -17 and 42 degrees c this mixture of kinetic and heat energy is enough to initiate the reaction.
being exo-thermic, it will cause your rim to buckle and fold due to the huge tempretures produced, this is why the few people crazy enough to run chrome rims need far more spokes than normal. ie, 48 or 144, depending on its use.

the saving grace is, aslong as you are with in the above tempretures the reaction is in equilibrium, and with revert barckwards and forwards with out you realising, except for the buckling and folding.

Glad to see another science-minded person on here.

They only really die if they get salt on them Razz water isn't to much of a problem.
