Hi all,
Basically my brother turned up with his bike the other day (as he knows nothing about maintenance) and claimed to have mangled his back wheel. On first inspection i noticed the cones were loose so I tighened them up but looking at the back wheel it's about 10mm off center sitting in the frame (in fact the part he claims to have buckled seems to be the only bit on center!! Is this a case of retruing the whole wheel and leaving the buckle or does it need to be dished at an LBS?

    the wheel needs sorting. dish and buckle.
