Does anyone here have any tips or tricks on replacing a rim? I have a rear wheel from a Mobylette, with a bent beyone repiar rim, but the hub is good. Now I have a rim which happens to be the same size and dimensions and number of spokes, the only diff is it does not have the little dimples on the sides of the rim. Has anyone re-spoked thier wheels, and if so, how did they do it? I made a jig from wood already, where I can spin the wheel, and see if it is circular, as well as if it is running up and down (side to side if installed). Now, I was able to make it run true and circular, but I don't know the spoke tension)
