Wheels

Post by Viv on Fri Dec 30, 2016 11:08 am

While doing a service on the bike I thought after the Christmas run I had knackered the front bearings but found I have dinged the front rim.
Found these and wondered if anyone out there knows if there any good.

Don't know about the rims viv but howe much of a ding you got ?? There's not too many bikes out there with undinged rims mind, as long as the tyre isn't getting pushed off I'd say keep your hard earned for the more essentials or get yourself a good copper hammer and bash fuck out of said ding..... unless of course your after a bit of blind spend away cheers

Try the:

Use a big fuck off vice or a hydraulic press..

Long piece of of solid unbendy hardwood or the like on the undinged side.

Small block of hardwood or plastic, less than 1inch square right over the ding.

Squeeze away. Go a little bit past the correct position to let it spring back a smidgen. Don't try to do it all at one go. Do a bit and have a look. Then a bit more. Get a feel for what's required. Very Happy

That should do it. I've never seen a rim ding inwards... Very Happy

What ever you do don't wack it with a big fuck off hammer. Only people like Jules try to do it that way. Haha

P.S. If you need to ask why the long piece of wood, Don't try it. Ask first... Shocked
