Mavic ES repair

I got hit by a car for the first time in my life today, I guess it was bound to happen in an urban setting. I'm trying to view it at a Rites of Passage which was bound to happen sooner or later.

I think my Tarmac frame is in good shape; I don't see a scratch on it anywhere. But my front wheel took a bit of a hit and is bent; can something like this be fixed, if so, who would you suggest I send to?

Thanks in advance for the help guys

Worth taking your wheel to your LBS and see what they have to say about it. I wouldn't be surprised to find out that you need a new one.

Out of true is fixable. Bent rim = replace rim. Your LBS should be able to do a "lace-over". By using the old hub and spokes (assuming that they are all good -- and there is very good chance they are) the wheel builder attaches a new rim to the old rim and just transfers old spokes (1 at a time of course) to the new rim and then completes the build. Ask for the old rim and hang it up some where as a reminder (for your own personal reasons). The rim will cost over $100 - unless you know the boss very well. Good luck and take care of your soon to appear sore body parts.

Depending on the severity of the bend the tension will be compromised in that area - how much to be a problem really depends on how bent it is, if any.

TLCFORBIKES, thanks so much for the advice on a rebuild. I think this is the way I will go; now I just need to find a new rim because the hub and spokes are fine.

Also, you hit the nail on the head with displaying the rim. I'm going to put it someplace to remind me that on each outing I need to be a better, smarter and more aware rider. Great piece of advice!

Your LBS should have a Mavic account. If you have problems getting a rim --- contact me off list (I live in Raleigh NC)and I will get you a rim. I have a account with Mavic.

Feeling any new sore areas yet?
