I took my bike for a service recently and was told it needed so many repairs that it was more cost effective for me to replace it.
One of the repair jobs was to replace the wheels due to worn rims. The shop told me they were so dangerous that they refused to replace the brake blocks - which were also dangerous - for fear of causing extra wear.
I am happy to replace the bike but this is a bad time to do so. I'm looking to move house and my eventual location may impact what kind of bike I buy. I'd like to ride on my worn rims until then.
The rims have a groove to indicate wear. The groove is still visible but it has become very shallow:
I've sorted the brakes for now by tightening the cable. But realistically how safe am I riding on these rims and for how long?
