    I bought a heavy rim from a member here, due to shoddy packaging and rough handling one of the wheel cups has a dent.I've scoured the net and most everybody says I have to replace the whole hub.If they're pressed in, can't they be pressed out as well, or will it damage the hub?Such a bummer, the wheel literally has no use, I sure don't want to have to pay for a new hub and relace.
    Any help?

    Thanks Blue, that's what I came up with as well.Looks like brutal surgery or hub replacement; good thing I have a bunch of spare parts from a closed bike shop.
