I think I jacked up my wheel set today.

I either bent my rim moderately, or just pulled my rim out of true.

I just wanted to know what you guys think about the matter.

By the way its a 2007 drilled KH 20" rim.

Or, If you know what you are doing you can fix it with a spoke wrench,
zip-tie and a tensometer, But then you probably wouldn't be asking for
advice. A bike shop will know what to do.

Harsh, glad I never messed a 180 up like that. You should get a solid
rim, like a koxx. Considering your the one who broke a dx right?
Yeah... Just get a solid rim  when you can.

off a 5 set? that is really lame... but then again i flatspotted mine
off a 4... you have a KH right?

anyways, slightly out of true and bent are the same thing... can you
even feel it when you ride?  does it really matter to you since you
can't?

also, if it is the kh rim, the first 4 times i knocked it out of true,
it decided to straighten itself.

Hey, don't discount yourself as not being good. I've seen some of your
vids and I like what I've seen. I can just barely get down five set
yet, haven't even tried 180ing one yet.

lol no, i'm saying that it bending off a 5 set is really lame... i
would expect a 200lb rider could do a 90 off a 5 set and be fine,
unless its a huge 5 set landed way off
