I purchased this bike used in Jan. and I thought I had checked it over good. I did miss a front wheel rim bend. Was out riding this weekend (First sun and warm day we have had in a long time) and while stopped for coffee, I notice the rim on the front tire had a small bend on both sides at the same tire location. See Photos.
The bike is riding good, and the front tire is not loosing air. No wobble, are vibration etc. Road hard this weekend, lots of curves and I did not notice any problem with the front end.
Question, Do I need to get this fixed?… or better can I get the rim fixed, or should I just buy a replacement wheel. A tire change is coming up soon anyway. The ome TPMS does not work on the front wheel anyway and plan on replacing that system anyway.
Anybody have a good guess as to how this type of bent rim happened?
