I had a blow out the other day on the flat gravel ,slow speed and I stopped immediately. After changing the tube and remounting the wheel I noticed it was not spinning true but no apparent problem with the disc brake. . So off with the quick release and a re-mount. Same again and the brake rotor runs true in the brake calliper. Thumb test shows the rim is buckled and a close inspection shows the same pattern of rim damage to a bit lesser extent around another 7 spokes. It is a WTB STP i23 rim on the grinder I bought from Wiggle this May.
Opinions please: Is this wheel fudged? Can I get it trued and ride on? Should I be demanding a replacement from Wiggle?
