So on my 3rd day of riding my shiny new road bike (with shiny new Hunt wheels) I’ve hit the biggest pothole I’ve ever hit – in about 14 years of road riding.
I’ve dinged the rim and it now has a slight vibration in it – although bizarrely the rim is still true and I didn’t puncture the tyre (unless it’s gone down since I locked my bike in the work car park).
I’ll pop round to the bike shop at lunchtime with the bike for their advice, but thought I’d see what people’s experiences on here are with bending back rims.
Both sides of the wheel have damage – but not so much that the tyre went down (I think it has tubes rather than being setup tubeless but I haven’t checked yet). It’s disc braked so no dramas with needing rim brakes to have a completely true surface.
Less bad side
