bent rim...

I put my bike up on the stand tonight to change the fork seal and I noticed that I had a bent rim. My question is, should I try and straighten it or should I just leave it the way it is? The tire is not leaking air, so I am thinking that not messing with it would be the best thing. Thanks in advance.

how bad is the damage if you free spin the wheel

Look for out of round side to side.....

There is a very, very slight wobble. You have to stare at it hard to see it. I think it should be ok.

I wouldnt worry about it, stuff like that will happen, You can try and true it up a bit if your comfortable doing that. But I would concider out of round and a signifacant side to side 1/4 inch to be bad
