So I have a bike with a 2mmx28 spoke radially laced front tire that I had been using for utility hauling and commuting. I was putting a lot of abuse on it so I wasn't too surprised when one day I noticed a couple of the spokes had come loose and the wheel was out of true.
So, I popped it on my stand and had a go at it. The wheel has almost 2mm low hop at the spot with the loose spokes and I can't seem to do anything about it. Laterally, I can get it pretty true, but those spokes are still below average tension + the hop.
Park tool tells me
Any tricks to try and fix this?If the rim shows an inward movement in one section toward the hub and the spokes in that area are already loose, the rim has been bent. This type of damage is not repairable.
If this wheel is toast, any suggestions on what to look for in replacement super tough utility wheels?
