a new rim is $90 dude.

I have to spend $311 on a subframe, not to mention pay the dealer $300 to figure out what is wrong with my bike.

cry me a river.

sorry for the crankiness I've been stressed..

I've hammered a serious ding out of an Excel before. Took some serious swings with a 2lb mallet.

If it isn't too bad you can use a large crescent wrench.

i want red excells but i haven't damaged my rim enough to have an excuse to get them. how big was the rock you hit? and how fast were you going? :) i like learning from other peoples mistakes.

the front tire was low on air and it went un noticed and went riding on it hit a rock the size of a foot ball, it was in 3 rd gear, the side wall of the rim is bent.

It can be hammered out, beat it like a stepchild:mad: Hammer and wood or just hammer if u got the right touch, u have nothing to lose if its already screwed up.
