I just bought a used bike and the wheelset has me a little concerned. Running tubes at 45 psi I've never had rim damage before besides going out of true and spokes breaking. The wheelset has a couple noticable flat spots where I can feel a slight bulge in the sidewall of the rim. The rims are also out of true. I'm debating just getting trued and seeing how much use I can get out of them unless you think that's a bad idea due to poor wheel integeity. The spokes and hubs are top of the line but I'm no wheel builder so I'd have to look at a whole new wheelset and am getting a little short on clams after the bike buy. Thoughts kn this issue?
