Today i took my cross bike out for a little single track, and had a blast on the poto trail in lower Michigan. It was my first trail ride, and I didn't really know what I was doing, but feel i did pretty well. I lost it on one decent and the bike and I hit the dirt/roots/rocks. Fortunately i was unhurt, and the bike looked ok. 6 or 7 miles later, on my ride home from the trail I looked back and noticed that the rear wheel had a nice wobble. It wasn't bad enough that I noticed it right a way, and I can't feel anything wrong, but it is visible when the wheel is spinning.
I took it into the LBS and the mechanic is going to true up the wheel as best he can, but he thinks the wheel will never be totally true again, and he will have to loosen/tension spokes to pull it back into "true" which will make it more susceptible to future issues.
Any recommendations for a good (cheap) strong wheel or wheel set to get me going again. I don't race, but plan on giving it a shot this fall when the season starts up again.
