Buckled Rim?

Hey all, I just got myself my first road bike (Trek 1400) less than a week ago, and have put maybe 50-60km on it in a couple days.

The thing is that I was playing around with it today, and noticed that the back brake was rubbing occasionally when i spun the rear wheel. It turns out that there is a small buckle in the rear wheel, only a couple mm out in one part of the rim, but it still worried me. Should a new bike be doing this?

Cheers,

Dan

No. Take it back and have it fixed... before it fails completely

cheers, I just realised that I should've done a search for this topic. Shouldn't cram for an exam and post on bike forums at the same time

Cheers
