my bmx experience so far
 
Bent rim, popped tube, bloody elbow and shin. I wont be riding for a while because I don't have the money for a new rim. I'm not going to lie, it has been pretty chittay. Also, do I have to get a new hub if I get a new rim? Or should I be good as long as it has the same number of spokes that I have right now?

when you buy a new rim you need to make sure it has the same amount of spoke holes as your hub.

Yeah you should be good as long as it has the same number of holes as the hub.

You'll probly just want to get a whole new wheel. Because the rim you bent and the hub it was probly on were probly crap. Most stock bikes have crappy wheels.

Look into Odyssy or Moshs complete wheels. (They are both made in the same factory and are compatable)

I rode for, like a year, with a rim that that was bent. I just always brought a rubber mallet with to the skatepark to pound back "straight".

Then what was the point of your post? As to everyone else, thanks I'll see what my next paycheck is and maybe get a new complete wheel.

Haha! How about using a spoke wrench first, and bending the rim on your knee as a last resort?

Also, is the ERD (effective rim diameter) basically the same for every BMX rim? With 700c rims, you have to make sure the spokes are the proper length.

Are you going to build your own wheel, tmowery?

no, he's not.

the spokes may also be a different length.

but yeh get a primo or ody or mosh and you should be set for a while.
