Hi on a way back from today's spin I fell in quite stupid way (approached curb in too parallel way), very slow fall and nothing serious apart from scratches, but unfortunately my front wheel got slightly bent.... It's not very visible at first, but when you look at wheel rolling it's very visible it is off the axis.
I think this should rather be fixable without a new wheel (i have metal dt1850 wheels)?
Is my thinking right? (I realize not possible to tell 100% without inspection but in general)

Any bike service you recommend for that? What should be the cost of wheel centring roughly?

Thanks

I was on spin with Mr Orange today, but I'm not sure if he takes care of minor stuff like that...

Hi Peter
drop it into Joe Daly Cycles and Dave or Fionn can take a look at it for you. Approx €15/€20 to get a wheel trued if it doesn’t need too many spokes

Hi Louise,

Unfortunately turns out their will needs replacement even though it looks kind of normal at first sight and it was fall from almost stand still there is a fracture and it can't be fixed. Bad luck...
So figuring out bew wheel as it seems can't get exactly same one anymore

Ah that’s bad luck Peter:( 

if you want a wheel from a brand we sell let me know - we give Orwell members a 10% discount.   We can source Mavic, Bontrager, Fast Forward and Zipp but not the DT Swiss sorry.
