Worn pads leads to damaged rims?
While washing my bike post race yesterday, i found something quite troubling.
Since my pads had worn a few millimetres, the increased travel caused the remaining pad to begin rubbing away at the body of the rim, instead of on the brake track.
This troubles me as I want to switch to carbon tubulars next year and I'd hate this to happen to those.
Is this a common occurrence or do I just need to be more watchful on my brake adjustments?
