I was hit by a car yesterday. I'm fine--just some scrapes and a little muscle soreness today, but nothing serious. Anyway, the car trashed my newly built rear wheel. The rim is bent.
The wheel is new--about a month old. None of the spokes look particularly damaged even now, but when I take the thing apart, if I find spokes that are straight and unbent, are they reusable? Or is it better just to start fresh? The guy's going to pay for my new wheel, but I'm not particularly keen on wasting money, even if it isn't mine.
