    HED Alps and Carbon Wheel HELP!

    so my bud gave me his old HED Alps wheel a few days ago, but as you
    can see there is a huge ass gash in it where some guy who had it be
    for him cut it to make the short valve fit... I 'v been riding it with
    no problem on my Fuji for a few days and my friend rode it for a
    month with no problems. So do what do you think? Is it a total
    death-trap or anything? or is it just fine to ride?
    Thanks, appreciate it.

    Howdy and welcome to the forums! I would take that question the the Bike Mechanic section, they would be better help for you than here in the Introductions forums. Maybe a mob will move it for ya. I would not ride them, I would think they are compromised structurally.
