Bent wheel and need help

What about spokes?

Spokes are not cheap, so you may end up putting more into this wheel than it’s worth.

Are you sure you can’t borrow some funds and get a worthy uni?

235# is big, bigger than me, I wouldn’t ride a single wall rim cuz it’d bend.

Xmas is coming, so maybe ask for muni?

I have bent rims back, the classic is to place the edge of the rim in a drawer and bend it back. I’ve gone as far as using a hammer. Seriously, I’d fix the wheel you have without investing $$. A taco’d wheel can often be brough back intrue by simply backon off the spoke tensiona and retentioning.
