my first bmx bike had steel 5spoke mag wheels on it, and they easily outlived the bike. most of my friends had conventional spoked wheels and a few others had "plastic" mags.
my question is, has anyone ever heard of the bmx urban myth that if you take a pair of (i think it was) skyway mag wheels that get out of true, you can make them straight again by "putting them in the freezer" for awhile. it sounds absurd that you could throw a mag wheel, plastic or skyway into a freezer and they'd come out straight, but has anyone heard of this actually working? i heard this back in the 80's and early 90's a few times, but was sceptical.
