is there a way to do that, my Alienation PBR (single wall) rim has a slight hop, should I just get a new rim because it's a single walled rim? or is there a way to remove the hop and to be honest i would not mind having to buy a new rim seeing as that i would want new spokes too cause im missing like 3 or 4 and i am running brass nipples on that bitch (i think) and i would get alloy ones... so is there another way to remove the hop or is de/re-lacing the entire wheel generally the best and more of the only option?

If it's a single wall you might as well get a new double.

Let me tell you, getting a hop out of a rim is near impossible. Think about it, all spokes do is pull. To even out a hop you would have to pull every other part of the rim lower, to match that hop. And attempting that you risk deforming the rim further. Tiny hops you can live with, bad ones you HAVE to live with or replace the rim.
