I notice many bike racers have separate wheels for their racing bike, and will often swap them out for regular wheels. I and a few others however, just leave racing wheels on all the time, mostly because it's a minor PIA to keep changing wheels out, and I don't care to purchase a second set. Am I damaging my wheels for doing this? What is recommended?
Some context might help too: My racing wheels are Mavic Cosmic Elite S rims. I also only use my road racing bike for races or paved trail riding (or clearer streets). When I commute, run errands, ride with non-racing friends and family, I use a hybrid bike, so I don't even let my racing wheels take hits from pot holes and nasty streets.
