NM Rim Lacing & Truing

Any of you in NM got a recommendation on a shop that'll lace and true a rim?




XRR bent front rim, I already sent it in once before to Woody's, but now I am not so sure; so I am thinking of a new rim, but using the old spokes & hub.

What would you need if I bought a new rim? Can I use the old spokes and hub? Would give you some $$ compensation in return...

I may be able to use the same spokes, just depends on the rim you will be using. It would be best to use new spokes if you could. Hub should be fine.

That is a good link.

Bent Rim

Sounds like a Jan project to me. Atomic brings old wheel, new wheel and spokes to Albq. DD restrings wheel while the rest of us eat the pizza and refreshments that Atomic orders to help pass the time while DD restrings the wheel. Our job is to provide company while DD does this extensive project--oh--and we provide constructive comments along the way
