Small dent on lip of Deep V, repairable?
Long story short, rode over pothole and it was abrupt and deep enough (combine with my speed, probably 18-20 mph) to dent the lip of both my deep v's. its the size of a dime and the lip is dented slightly inward and i wanted to know if theres anyway to fix it? can it bet bent back? will i have trouble truing in the future?
there is one spot around the nipple where the metal has been stressed slightly. is this a red flag for the entire wheels structure?
this is the case where i wished my deep v wasnt so... rigid and i wouldve rather had my wheel out-of-true than dented. ugh!
