Shimano Dura-ace rim crack questions!
Was washing my bike yesterday and replacing a worn tire and noticed 2 cracks in my DA rear rim. This is only my second season on the wheels, probably 4000 miles on them.
The 2 cracks are on one side of the rim, parallel to the arc of the rim, maybe 1/8th on an inch below where the spoke enters the rim. Larger crack is maybe an inch long.
1) Will this likely be replaced under warranty?
2) Is this typical for lightweight rims? I really don't want to be going through this every 1-2 years. I am 6'2" 195, not the lightest rider out there, but no clydesdale by any measure.
