    I feel your pain. Similar thing happened to my CXP33 rim on a club training ride. Pothole, I think.
    FCN 2-4.

    Doesn't look that bent... get an adjustable spanner on it.

    The way to look at it is; you're not going to make it any worse.

    ... and if you are, you were going to replace it anyway :)

    That'll buff out.

    Exactly, it's when the rim is split that you need to think about replacing the wheel; this one just loosen the brakes off to get you home and then bend it back

    I'll leave the DIY to you chaps. I've had a rim split on me before and don't fancy causing it myself! :)

    I don't think he's needed, you seem to have managed well enough on your own.

    Its just bent, use tools and bend back into shape.

    Job done.

    I've heard tell that there is nothing worse than a poorly executed rim job. It can leave you wobbling when riding and the discomfort is just a pain in the censored .

    censored ...

    Were your pressures alright, or did the pothole just appear before you?
