Alloy can be tricky to straighten depending on the wall shape, hardness and in what manner it was bent. Severely bent rims can reused. 6061 is easier to tame than T6. Not worth mending steel that can be bent again. I remove as many weak links as possible.Tried to straighten a rim like that once. Would get it close and it would just snap back into the previous shape. It was alloy though and I didn't remove the spokes. Good luck.
Want me to pay if forward?I hang rims like that on my fence behind the garden. Beans and peas love them
The one I attempted to straighten was for a guy at work and it was off of a cheap Wally World type bike. I just wanted to show off.Alloy can be tricky to straighten depending on the wall shape, hardness and in what manner it was bent.
....nipplenipple heads are almost the same diameter as a schrader valve.
Would love to try out one of your rides. You could take this one for a spin. You'd need a taller gear though.Always the same guys Wish we could all ride together. We'd understand each other better.
