How To Fix A Bent Rim On A Mountain Bike. A few months ago i had a mountain bike race in vail lake temecula, and i was unable to complete the race. After i got it fairly close to new again, i put it in a clamp and spun it around, hitting it with a hammer lightly on the bent spot.
All that’s left is to try and bend it in the opposite direction from the spot that won’t sit on the rim. Bicycle rim a metal or composite ring that is part of the bike wheel and on which the hub with the spokes are attached.
Bike shops can assess the wobble a give you an opinion if it can be straightened. Don’t use too much force though, you can damage the rim.
