Here's how we straighten them back out in a hurry, or make "taco-ed" bike wheels from the bike shop's dumpster usable again.
This wheel is pretty bent. Notice how the joint is even coming apart.

Step 1: Find a Hole
As they say in Venezuela, "En tiempo de guerra, Cualquier hueco es trinchera."
I guess the city is planning to plant a tree here. In the meantime it's a good place to fix a wheel. Here I am uncovering the hole. Remember to cover it up again, this is a litigious society.
