2015 rear replacement burple rim

Recommended Posts

elmo
Crashed and damaged my rear rim during low side crash today, I am ok and thought only minor bike damage until I saw the rim when I got home.
See attached photo, is rim damage repairable or is replacement required?
If yes, good source for replacement?
Thanks,
Rick

Hard to tell from pics but if it holds air and runs out smoothly, I'd just run it. I see much worse going around the track. It is probably repairable as well if you're so inclined. You can Google this as there aren't that many shops around the country qualified/capable to do so. Another possibility is just buy another wheel from fleabay, they run a  +/- couple hundred bucks depending on condition, brake rotors, bearings etc.

It's already broken right? Bet I could beat it straight with a rubber mallet.
