I just got back from a ride after falling into a crack that my wheel just fit into. Both my tires punctured and the wheels are quite scored from the pothole. Hitting the brakes was noisy and sounded like I had sand in the pads,so it is quite bad as far as I can tell. I got a picture of one of the scores. It isn't the worst one, but it shows what I'm talking about. There are about 6 per side per wheel of these. Can I sand them down to make them rideable until I build a new wheelset, or should I put the bike to the side until I locate a set of wheels? Here are the pics:
Thanks in advance. I'm still somewhat flustered from the near crash, so I apologize for the lack of clarity in the post.
