What shop can straignten a rim?

I think my rim is bent because when I'm going about 70 and look down it's going up and down a bit even on straight surface, and when I go over 100 there's some real shaking going on.

I know I might have to get another wheel instead but what shops can see if it's fixable?
thanks

Your rim is bent man. I'm not sure, but are you the guy who rode around with no air in your tire? Well if you are you could see the bent rim in one of the photos you posted.

Brand new front rim = $500+
Straight used front rim= $200-$250
Straightening your wheel= $150 (never 100% but very usable and worth it).

dude, be careful, this guy told you that you're rim was bent on 8-30. And now you're talking about doing triple digits on it. Hope you haven't ridden since then.
