I had a pretty bad crash last saturday and getting to the point when I can hopefully get back on the bike in a couple days, nothing too bad just badly skinned in places that need articulation.
Maybe I am being overly concerned & I know people have asked similar questions, but I am really worried about the front wheel. The rim is only slightly bent but it goes through both sides. I trued it but obviously the bend is still there and spoke tension is not even.
These are cheap alex wheels and if I get a replacement I'd get the same thing. So I am not sure if it might just make more sense and be safer, considering it is a front wheel, if I spend the ~70$ and get a new wheel, sell the formula hub from the old wheel (rolls smooth) and keep the spokes for future repairs (Ive broken a couple spokes on the back wheel before). The tire didn't flat, they are marathons so that probably helped.
I also attached a picture of the stitch in the wheel, again I might be crazy but looks really pronounced now. As far as bending it back, I don't have many tools that would help that and I feel a little uncertain doing that.
