Good day all
I have been truing the rear wheel on my commuter bicycle which has taken
a bit of a beating over the potholed streets of Chicago. Anyways I got
it true except for one spot. a 2mm hop centered over 1 spoke. The spoke
is a drive side and is as tight as I can get it [nipple starting to round
despite being well lubed]. It doesn't seem to help. Is there a way to
repair the rim?
there's various ways to bash it to bend it back, but often, this causes as
much damage as it's designed to fix. either live with it or replace the
rim. sheldon is a good online resource.
