I bought a flip-flop low-end suzue hub pre-laced to an alu. weinmann rim and had all sorts of trouble getting it true. problem was the rim was bent, so I took it apart, straightened the rim and relaced it (3 trailing/3 leading pattern). I noticed the hub eyelets had some gouges and stress "dimples" where the elbows exited the eyelets on the exterior of the hub.
Is the hub okay to work with, or are these dimples something to worry about structurally?
I also kind of bent some of the spokes a bit--I'm assuming they'll be okay and straighten out under tension.
Sorry, these questions might totally be basic. this is my first wheelbuild, and I don't want to have it explode under me, esp. on a fixie. Fun stuff, though! Way easier than I thought it would be.
