Front wheel/rim

Hello all-

This past weekend I went riding up St. Helens to the Windy Ridge Lookout and on the way back down I hit a nasty dip in the road. It is like a combination of sunken down grade and repaved and it is REALLY nasty. Thankfully, I didn't hit the brakes, so I stayed upright the entire time. But, I did hit it is such a way that it bent my rim and now I am off balance and have super shakiness. I don't think that I can fix this rim, so it looks like I need another.

Does anyone have a front rim that they aren't using? I have an 05 9er that I use as my main mode of transportation. I've also heard that the F4 wheel will also work, but I don't know the specifics....

Any help is greatly appreciated.....

Thanks so much..
Hugs-

I was stationed in Astoria a couple of months ago for 3 years. The Pacific Northwest has some of the best riding in the country hands down. Nothing better than making a trip from Astoria to Brookings on a clear weekend.

Good luck w/ the wheel

These guys can fix your rim. I have sent an f3 rim there that was way beyond tweaked and they fixed it good as new.
