Rode 4 hours on new years day. Bad Muddy and small block 8 on the front = wrecked a few times but I rode hard so no funny jokes lol.
So, I just got in from a night ride and pow! Front wheel, nipple pulled from the rim, threads and all. New StanZTR 355's
I do NOT want to send them back. Could this be fixed?
thanks for the help.

The whole nipple came out? OR the spokes came out of the nipple? If the nipple came out sounds like the rim is trashed, manufacturing defect I would assume.
