Where is the line between the two? My front wheel recently developed a somewhat significant wobble, and using the ziptie to the fork truing stand, I could not get it true. This could just be my noob mechanical skills though. In the process of attempting to true my wheel, I broke a spoke which just pissed the living sh*t outta me. :madmax: It is like there isn't a particularly large wobble, but the wobble is prolonged. It seems like 25 percent or 35 percent of the wheel/tire is not aligned with the rest. So frustrating. BTW I got them used around 2.5 years ago and I've been riding on them without touching em since. ERGH

If you can not true the wheel and/or the spoke tension is wildly uneven after truing, the rim is bent.
