    Hello all-

    I've got a small dent in the rim edge of my front wheel. I came out the loser in a run in with a monster pot hole. I'd like to get it repaired but I don't know anyone who fixes that sort of thing. I'm in the NYC area. Anyone know of someone who could do the repair? If I can't get it repaired, I guess the next step is looking for a good used front wheel. Anyone got one of those for sale?!?

    If anyone has a suggestion for a repair spot, let me know!

    Thanks all.

    If it's a small dent just run it and make sure your spokes are evenly tensioned to spec.

    Most of us run dented rims, for years. If you don't feel anything acting weird just leave it as it is
