Front Wheel damaged but not to excess advisory

#1 Post by SometimesSansEngine » Fri Jan 11, 2019 10:59 pm

This is a recent MOT advisory on a bike I've enquired about

Front Wheel damaged but not to excess (5.2.2 (c) (i))

This is said damage:

Supposedly been checked by a mechanic who said it's nothing to worry about... But is there anything else you would check?

(nb might not even go and see it yet, it's a bit of a trek and I'm not in a rush anyways, but this is generally good info for the future anyway)

I would be worried about if the wheel was true or not although the damage doesn't look to be too bad

Could just be from a cack handed tyre change

True wasn't definitely one of the things I'd considered - easier to check on a bicycle wheel though plus I have all the tools to fix an out of true bike wheel :lol:

Looks more like someone has slipped with a tyre lever to me rather than accident damage

My ER5 front wheel has lumps out of it but it's never been mentioned in any MOTs
