    They are riding their wheels. That's what they're doing to them.

    I've seen a metric butt-ton of Bontrager wheels crack around the nipples over various styles and generations. Way more than...

    I picked up the vivoactive for a couple of reasons: I liked an idea of a smart watch but didn't want to spend tons of money, and - I'm a Garmin dealer.

    I usually ask customers, "tubular or clincher." They usually respond with, "tubular!"

    "Are you sure?"

    "Yes - I want the kind with the tube."

    Problem with the tire barring any major damage to the rim bead but odds are just the tire bead.

    No. I would never....but that's mainly because I haven't ever found a Bontrager branded part that I like. Apart from that...it's a bike. It's only redeeming value is you enjoy riding it. (TWSS).

    Crows foot style lacings work fine but they are about the looks - not the function. Couple that with the paired spoke dilled rim...that's a celebration of being different to be seen.
