I bent a rim the other day...
« on: October 11, 2018, 02:37:08 AM »
Last week, while riding Angeles Crest, I came around a curve and found a pile of rocks in my path. I failed to miss them all...
Bent my front rim in two places, one on each side.   :006:
So I looked for someplace to get them repaired, and found Dr. Johns Motorcycle Frame Straightening, located in Anaheim California.
I was able to drop the rim off in the morning and pick it up that afternoon. Not only did they fix the wheel without scratching the paint, but they trued the brake rotors as well. Didn't even damage the rim tape!  :152:
I'm happy with the result. If you are in the SoCal area, and need their services, here is the link:
