So I went down, I could have saved it but could not get my feet out of my straps quick enough.....
My rear rim is really bent, took it to my LBS and he said they could not fix it. He said I would need a new rim, about $70, but they did not have a black rim in stock and had to order which would take a week.
I cant wait that long as this is how i get to work.
Called another LBS to see if they have one in stock and got a little more info that I did not know. Newb here, did not realize the difference between a wheel and a rim. He said it would be cheaper to by a new wheel (said he had one for $100) than to just replace the rim with them doing the labor to do the swap? I dont really understand because i have never done this. This LBS has not seen the rim yet also.
So what should i do? I need to get it going by tomorrow. If I can find a rim, is it something i can repair myself with parktool or something and then just have it trued?
Please help. Thanks. Its a 700c tire, the rim says PR15 or something like that. Its a cheap bike I got online, windsor wellington 2.0.
