If you aren't going to pay to get it repaired, try fixing it yourself. If it is a small dip, it can easily be fixed with a rubber mallet or deadblow. Aluminum is fairly soft and like most metals it has a memory and will revert back to the last hot-worked shape fairly easily.
And, where can you get a used front wheel for $100-$150? I'd like to see that.
