I was prepping my bike for a tour that starts Friday. I guess I should have done that last week because I notice cracks in the rim around two of the spoke, that were several spokes apart.
I ordered the Mavic rim in May 2008 so I probably have 7K-8K on the rim. That is touring and just every day riding miles. Touring miles on the rim maybe 2K or so.
Has this rim lived it's useful life or should I have gotten some more miles out of it?
