    Well I am schedule to do a 4 day ride next weekend, BUT found my 990 adventures ft rim is cracked while changing the tire.
    So no chance a getting it rebuilt in time, so I am now looking for a replacement. Anyone have one for sale, rent or borrow, stock or Woodys?

    I am in Portland.
    thanks

    Maybe not horribly I have seen worse, but yes it has wide spots, flat spots, and a crack and idea of suddden rim failue seems like a bad idea so I am leary of putting effort into that rim. I thought about welding it, but I don't know the alloy, and if you don't get the tip, the crack will continue to grow till it hits a spoke hole, high cycle fatigue loading. Now who has an extra SE rim laying around?
