Wheel frame? Do you mean the rim? If so, it can be repaired if the damage is not to extensive.

Ya...thats what I meant. I wasnt thinking straight yesterday
How bad is the damage? Can you give us some details?

Still totally ridable. Just that I dont run a smoothly and that it is a bit hard to start out
Most likely can be fixed then, when spinning it on the bike how much movement do you see side to side? .5 inch.. 6 inches.. :)
Take it to a shop and see if they can true and dish it.. Also, check the dropouts, you may have the wheel mounted unsquare.
