Bent Front Rim - can I still ride it?
Posted September 23, 2001 - 07:37 AM
Can it be fixed or do I have to get a new rim?
And I am 100% positive that the dealer put it there when they put my new tire on. Of course they are not going to admit this and I will argue with them about it on Tuesday. Then I will storm out huffing, puffing and yelling that they just lost a customer. This goes with my earlier post on moron dealers. I am going to have to suck it up and get my nuckles bloody and just do my own tires from now on.

I have never tried to pop dents out of a rim, I wonder if the metal is too brittle...???

There is no doubt they now when and how your dent got there. Good luck and take no prisoners.......ain't got nothing to loose.
Oh and the last bike I had, had a huge dent in the rim and I never had any problems and now mike68's gal is riding it. You should be ok.

BTW...if your ever in Reno NV, check out the bike shop next door to the Hilton, they are great people. They straightened our rims and mounted our tires for free, and it was a welcome break.
Pretend it's flat and give it the gas.
