Bend rim

Does anyone have experience with riding with bent/dented rim?
Would you ride with this rim?

Some people will , if it still holds air reliably.

I won't.

It will be vibrating at xxx speeds.

front rims harder to find these days.

Quality rim repair will cost $150+.

If west coast look for Frame Man in Sac. Cali.....really good.

Not only is it hard finding front wheel.. it's hard finding the same design... Seems like 99% of rims on eBay are the previous design..

I hit a deer over two months back and it's been sitting in my garage for that long and it's still holding air..

Front rim on my R6 had a bend like that. Rim was still able to be balanced so I commuted on it for another year and some change. Never failed, but I wouldn't recommend it purely as YMMV
