???Bent Rim Question???

Recommended Posts

Hello TT,

I bent one side of my front Excel rim.....The bend is mainly on the side of the rim ( the part that seals the tire)........Is there any way to "bandaid" this problem just until i can afford to buy a new rim??? I have riden the bike ( just to warm up) & can't really tell that it is there...............Riding weather is near & i am not going to be able to replace this rim for a little bit...........Your thoughts please

If it's bent just a little bit, try a hammer... But really any "really" bent rim should not be fixed but replaced. Try going to a scrap yard and buying an old wheel. Just make sure that it's the same width, diameter and has the same spoke count.
