Fixing bent Marchesini rims

hey guys just wondering if anyone would know of a place that can straighten Marchesini magnesiums rims. went out for a ride here in the NE as the weather was not bad today and hit a pretty big pot hole. Came home and put the bikeup on stands and have a nice ding in my front rim. I know its not easy to straighten magnesium but someone has got to be able to do it. Any recommendations??

Dunno about Marchesini, but Dymag has a repair service, and they offer refurbishment to any brand of magnesium rim. The bad thing is that they have to be shipped back and forth to the UK.

I've dealt with the current iteration of Dymag (the previous company of the same name went bankrupt, then another company bought them out) and found them good to deal with, but NOT cheap.


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Gerry has fixed a few of my wheels, and they came back absolutely perfectly true with no marks on them.
