      Hello everyone,

      My front wheel has had a whack. May I ask you gentlemen:

      How "bent" is too bent?

      The rim is deformed for a total of 75mm measuring around the circumference of the rim (near side (off side is fine)). It bends gently out (and back again), at it farthest, the deflection is about 4mm.

      I don't remember this happening, the tyre seems okay - the "chicken strip" is "as new" and the tyre doesn't lose pressure.

      Does the tyre have to be changed? - it's fairly new so I'd rather not! But if it does it does - don't fancy a blow out at 90mph! Not that I ever go that fast of course. Ahem.

      Thank you in advance gentlemen.
