Bent, any way to fix it or do I have to buy another wheel? Hit a big ass pothole and dented the front rim. Tire went flat and wont hold air...

yeah with the price of fixing it most of the time you can find another good rim.
most fixes are only about $100-120 but then you have to pay shipping etc.

Rim repair if you shop is better than buying a used one. you have to shop for the rim repair though. The rim repair shops will usually get the rim straighter than it was when it was new. Unless you can find a good rim used with rotors and bearings for less than 200 shipped, it is worth it to get the rim straightend instead.

can you make the city pay for it? just wondering..
You know I actually brought that up to my parents the other day. I was thinking about that but wasn't sure how far that would get. Plus it would probably take forever to get it fixed due to the things I would have to go through.

I went ahead and just bought a new rim with tire. I got one for 200, shipping included with a semi new Pilot Power 2ct front tire. Pretty good deal if you ask me!
