|you can live with it. I rode one for the last 10 years... Of course, it really DID bug me (I could feel it with every rotation of the wheel), but I couldn't afford to fix it. Now I've got a new wheel, and I'm happy.|
|take it to your LBS||PaulCL|

|About a month ago, I ran over a big rock. Put a big, and I mean BIG, dent in my rear rim. I thought it was toast.
I took it to my LBS. He didn't make any promises,but would try. He straightened that rim out perfectly. I don't even have a noticeable bump in the rim.
Yes, you can still ride with the dent, but it will drive you nuts. Paul
