    And I’d say it’s gone out of true, so take it to someone who can adjust the spoke tension / replace as necessary to get it straight again, unless close inspection shows cracking around any of the spoke holes, in which case the rim is toast. Or download a copy of Roger Musson’s book on wheel building and have a go at truing it yourself.

    It looks like its been run over. And the frame looks bent too.
