Shimano C24 9000 Rear Rim replacement

My rim is dented - hub is perfect. What are my options? None of my local shops are helpful in sourcing a replacement rim. Rear wheel is 20 hole. Thank you for your help.

this rim is similar... you might need new spokes/nipples, but it looks to be fairly alike as to ERD... DT Swiss RR 411 700c Tubeless-Ready Road Rim: 20h (Squorx Nipples/Rim Washers)

and it sounds like your local shop's workers are a bit lazy, eh?

A lot of the LBS's in my area just don't have anyone with the experience to replace a rim. Many just are not going to find they are able to make any profit worth the time it took them to look up, order, install and risk dissatisfaction of the customer for things they can't control.

Much easier and cheaper to source an entire new wheel already built.

Now if you know how to build your own wheel, it might be an entirely different story.

It's disappointing that Shimano does not sell replacement parts for their pre-built wheels.

I've heard of Shimano selling these separately if you can get your shop to order one or search the part# online. This may be the one your looking for but double check. http://si.shimano.com/pdfs/ev/EV-WH-...CL-R-3334A.pdf

Shimano isn't always fantastic about having replacement parts available, so they may genuinely be unobtainable, but a good shop should be able to check Shimano B2B, and then also call Shimano. Sometimes replacement parts are available that aren't even available through their business site. If your shops did this you're SOL, and I'd recommend complaining loudly at Shimano.
