Man, I just can't imagine even considering repair unless you were stuck in in a Third World nation where the tubes were just unavailable. You can usually buy used tubes on ebay or at junkyards. For me, all the time wasted in experimentation is taken directly from riding and could easily lead to more money spent in the long run.

Personally, in this case,I'd bite the bullet an buy NEW components that I could reasonably expect to be round and true and just reassemble it once.

I must admit guilt from old age and a little more money than I used to have, Vic. Mea culpa, mea culpa. I have to realize too, that many don't rely on their bike for the daily commute to work as I do. That need to have an reliably operating machine every day really affects my perspective.

Now that I think about it - in my earlier life I replaced and balanced the permanently mounted u-joints in a Datsun B-210 driveshaft rather than buy a new shaft. But that was 20 years ago . . .

I hear ya Vic.
