round a rim out
hello i am thinking of making a custom front bmx wheel as i did with my rear one... i have my old odyssey light rim but the problem is it as a slight flat spot. could somone tell me wear i could take the rim to get it rounded out to normal?? thanks
It's a "good luck" kind-of-situation. I've heard of a rim-jack sort-of thing. People also say you can sometimes "pop" it out by loosening the spokes involved and overtightening the adjacent ones (this is NOT a good description of the process, read up on it elsewhere). I've never had luck with the second procedure myself. The most likely solution is either: a being okay with a flat spot, or b. buying a new rim.
