    Mavic CXP22 rims....just destroyed my rear....

    out for a ride ......made it about 8 miles and noticed a thumping or some thing strange under me.

    I stopped and couldnt sort it out. I decided to turn around and head back. It thumped all the way home. Upon closer inspection the entire rim cracked in half

    I remember hitting a pot hole but didnt think it was that hard. Wholey crap...they have been great riims too. Not a single issue....now i need a new back rim. THere is a flat spot and right where the flat spot is you can see a stress fracture in the aluminum and the spoke right in front of that area is super loose.

    BOOOOOO!!!!!!!

    heheh.....on the way.

    im still stewing....

    I ordered them about a year ago for BWW and have been 100% fully satisfied on the quality of the wheels. They are fantasitc. Ive contacted them to see if they will tear the down and slap a new rim on them for me.

    Just about the same on the other side...maybe a bit worse. Very odd.......no buldge in the tire......no pinch flat or issues with the tire/tube in any way that i can tell.

    Are all the spokes of even tension? And not too tight?

    well the good news is the folks at BWW are going to replace the rim for the cost of shipping. Thats good service right there. Ive bought 2 sets of wheels from them in the past and when i need more im doing business with them again for sure!
