Depending on how it got bent and how much worse you've made it, the rim may be toast. Why don't you take it down to a real Bike Shop and let them have a look at it.

It's an art that involves some special tools. Check this out here...

Broken wheel


Bikes don't have plastic spokes. Loose spokes call for proper tensioning and truing, best done by a mechanic if you have very little experience. Here's some info on truing wheels:

Rear wheel wobbely


Not enough info here. Is it the rim or the hub that is wobbly? If the rim is out of true (and not actually bent) the spokes can be tightened to bring it back into true. If the hub is loose then the bearings need to be adjusted. Either adjustment can be done by your local bike shop for $10-20. A broken spoke can also make the wheel go out of true, this will cost a little more to fix.

How do I change the back rim on the bike?


To change just the rim is a pretty big job, since you would have to remove every spoke and assemble a new wheel. But maybe you are asking how to straighten the wheel? If the bend is a bit of a wobble, and not a sharp kink, then you can usually true-up the wheel by adjusting the spokes. If this happened kind of suddenly, then you probably have a broken spoke. Pull on every spoke one at a time to see if that is the case. If none are broken, then you only need a spoke key. There are several styles, all pretty cheap, but they aren't all the same size. Look on YouTube for a how video on trueing bike wheels.
If you do have a broken spoke, and it is on the left side, then it's not too hard to replace. Just get the right size spoke and spoke key and you can do it without even removing the wheel. If you have a broken spoke on the right side you will almost certainly have to remove the wheel from the bike. There are several types with corresponding different tools and can be a bit tricky. Look for info on Parktool.com

My bike got crushed by the garage door: back linear tektro bent to side and wheel spokes broke, wheel looks bent. Is this a costly repair? Ladies wildwood. Thank-you.


What's the whole bike cost? Normally every part of the bike except the frame is replaceable economically - which is subjective.

Tektro brakes or equivalent - cheap; wheel - probably cheaper than a rebuild; labor - unknown.

If the frame or the brake bosses are bent - fuhgetaboudit. Take it to a Bike Shop for evaluation. They can just hang new wheels on it and see how straight everything else is.

BACK WHEEL IS WAVBLING SO AUTOMATIC GEAR CHANGED


There could be 3 reasons for a wobble - usually not concerning the gears.
1 The wheel is bent (hit something). Turn the bike upside down and slowly spin the wheel while looking along it, You should be able to see a wobble not matter how small.
2 The wheel is NOT in the wheel mounts evenly Same as number 1 - and if it does wobble, unscrew the wheel nuts and push into the forks.
3 The wheel has one or more broken spokes. This applies to mountain bikes more as a harder trail can break spokes and this bends the wheel. One again - upturn the bike and press you hand onto every spoke, sometimes they break but do not come off the wheel.
Hope that helps -- Ray

Broken spokes on rear wheel


It is not that hard to replace a few broken shokes. All you have to do is take the rim off the bike and take the tire off of the rim. Install the new spokes and tighted them to the specs and put everything back on the bike and take it for a ride. After riding, I would check the spokes and retight to make sure there ready for your next ride.

How do I true a rimm


Take your tire and tube off remove the rubber gasket that goes around the rim on inside. Your spokes should have a square connector at the ends tighten and loosen individual spokes on opposite sides the way your rim is bent, it takes a lot of time.Then your spokes will be sticking up into the rim grind those down so the don't poke through your gasket. Do this on the the bike frame so you can spin the rim. you can get a spoke tightener at your hardware store.This is a pain in the **** i take mine to a bike shop to have it done!

Shimmy in the front end at speeds of 45 to 50 and above 65 on deacceleration. Never had the problem before and the bike is an 08 and about 2500 miles


Check that all nuts and bolts that fasten the front lower forks to the wheel axle are tight and in good shape. Also the front tire may have a shifted belt which is difficult to diagnose but can cause the symptom you are describing. If you ran over a pot hole or nasty bump the rim may be bent. While driving the bike try to look down at the front wheel to observe any warpage on the rim if the rim is bent bring it to a motorcycle repair shop they can tighten the spokes in a way that will straighten the rim.

I have a schwinn avenue bike purchaced at walmart last fall. i have had to replace spokes on the rear 3 different times.


Either you are riding over some really rough terrain or the air pressure in the tires is too low. Not getting them tight enough will also cause alignment problems and bend spokes. Eric

Rear end wiggils more than my oldladys


If the axle is bolted tight and adjusters are solid I would check the wheel spokes. Loose spokes can make for a really squirrely ride.I assume your bike has spokes as opposed to solid wheels.
