Ceramic or tungsten carbide coated rims?
Has anyone used or serviced (Mavic) ceramic or (Thorn badged) tungsten carbide coated rims (not anodized)?
I'm considering them for 26" road touring tandem wheels, using V brakes - better wet weather performance and slower heat buildup according to the manufacturer (Thorn).
Definitely V brakes, not discs. I'm looking for feedback on the rims - durability, brake pad wear, braking performance.
Will cross post in Touring, Tandem and MTB.
