I have, last February came off damaged my handle bars and mirror cost to me £50, put a claim in to the council and received a letter back saying "they are looking into it" (what the hole ) I’ll be happy if I get my £50 back, but not holding my breath.
Also, make sure you get some good pictures of the pothole in question and if possible try to make sure the pictures show something that can be identified to pinpoint the location - a picture that just shows a pothole can be taken anywhere. It might just help your case and there's no way the council could deny the existence of the hole in the first place.
Friend of mine claimed for a new back wheel and cassette after hitting the kerb last year,was looking behind and lost balance then tried to bunny hop up onto the pavement at about 25mph on a 35kg electric bike needless to say he didn't quite make it
He then took a pic of a nearby pothole and said he hit that.Local council paid out his £80 repair bill
