My rear wheel's been a bit out of true for a while, but when I noticed it was a bit out of round too and the wobble was a bit worse, I decided to take it in to get it fixed.
I just went to pick it up, and the work order said "This wheel is untruable, spokes are over/under tensioned. Wheel has a flat spot. Spokes Stretched."
Now, I don't know much about wheel truing, but does this sound right?
I thought the whole point was to fix any bends in the rim, tension the spokes, and then properly adjust them so the wheel is straight. Reading up a bit on the process seems to confirm this.
Can an old but not obviously damaged wheel really be a lost cause, or should I take this some place else?
