So the other night I caught my self being nice and learned a lesson the hard way. I let a friend ride one of my bikes and the hit a curb and this resulted in the back rib getting "dimpled out" on both sides where the hit was. Wish the tire would have just popped and not dinged my rim! The tire didn't pop! Any way, my local shop wanted to sell me a rim. Is this possible to repair? I can take pics if more info would help!
