How do you straighten bent lugs on a clincher
rim? Can you just hammer them back into position
or will they snap off. Thanks Doug
They were swedged in,and can possibly be beaten straight.I would weld them to be sure they stay .This can be done on inside of rim,so it doesn't show.
Doug, I would use heat and bend them back into place. If you hammer them cold, you are likely to upset the swedge used to hold them in place, and they may then be loose.
Hope this helps.
