I've been cycling for about a month now on a 1970's motobecane 10-sp road bike. Last night, I put a nice dent in the lip of my rear rim and my bike is out of commission at the moment. I'm not sure if I should pay to fix the rim, buy a new rear rim for $70 on ebay, buy a new rim set for $120 on ebay, or finance a new bike for $700. Help me decide.
I know another option is to find another old 10-speed at a thrift store, but there don't seem to be any thrift stores near me that have old 10-speeds. I live in the NW suburbs of chicago if anyone knows a place.
