Minor bend in the front wheel

I have a very minor bend in the lip that doesn't seem to significantly affect the tire pressure. I want to get this fixed and I think I have two options: new rim or get it fixed. I have seen these guys who fix rims on cars and they look brand new.

How much do these guys usually cost and do you recommend it on a bike?

I've had rims fixed local (Wichita, KS) for $30-35.

I do all my own stunts.

Re: Minor bend in the front wheel

I've used MCWheel to fix a badly dented wheel for my VFR. It cost about $100, but they did a great job.
