You could put some baking paper over the patch, then use iron (for ironing clothes) to get the patch hot, then remove it (patch glue becomes liquid once heated).

Assuming you have a decent/good quality hub, why not just get another CR-18 rim and use your existing hub & spokes?

I had the Spongy Wonder for a while and still have the t shirt that came with it. Didn't work for my particular problem but I still recommend it for a well made noseless saddle.

Iím not going to address your accident. To check the frame, inspect it first to see that everything looks straight. If nothing looks really off, get a long piece of string (6 to 10 feet). Tie one end...
