Has anybody got any ingenious ideas of how to unbuckle a wooden rim?
My rear rim has a warp in it and i need to straighten it before lacing the wheel back up.
I read on a Google search that a man put a rim in his shower under hot water and then tied the rim to a straight wheel until it was dry. He said his rim became straighter but not a perfect repair. Any ideas on how to improve on this?
On my rim it pretty much straight but then a 1/4 of it has an s shaped warp to it.
The warp is left and right along the rim and not up and down , so it is still round when viewed from the side.
Also for anybody who has never held wooden rims before they are really flexible when unlaced. If you push down on them they really flex. I'm not 100% sure i would feel safe while riding on them
But i would like to build the wheel up to use at slow speeds and plus i'm building some alloy wheels for everyday use.
Any advice is appreciated.
