  4. Hi there!
    My MTB’s front wheel is untrue but I dont feel any loose spokes. Am I looking at replacing the rim or is it still possible to true it? I am going to have my bike service next week but if the rim is irreparable then I can buy a new one before the service date so that they can build it up and put it on my bike.
    Thanks! Waiting for a reply. 🙂

    1. Hi David, it depends on how big the wobble is. Best to bring it in to the shop to let a mechanic assess, but rims are often salvageable.

  5. How untrue is seriously untrue?
    My road bike’s back wheel is untrue about 1/8-1/4 of an inch is this bad enough to true it immediately and not to ride it till its true? Please respond asap, Thanks
