Double blah on that stupid response about a disk wheel. Why bother typing and posting that garbage?
Thanks, Crushkill. I think you are onto it. "Little white cloudy bits" is a perfect description. That would make sense since I have this only an the rear where I don't have a brake, but the front rim is shiny and smooth. Hmm, I wonder if a Scotch Brite pad would be too abrasive? I wouldn't want to scratch them. I also thought about extremely fine steel wool. I could always carefully test out one spot, or go with the brake suggestion.
Bexley: I've had mine for one year. Laced them myself to some Formula hubs 3x. Had to tighten up the spokes/true once after a few months of riding but other than that they have been wonderful. The silver ones are really great look and perform well. I don't normally show brand allegiance, but I've had nothing but positive results with Mavic rims.
Thanks again, Crush. It is nice to ask a simple question and get a simple, clear, direct answer.
