That's the advice I was going to offer.

In my experience, if you're using the right brake pads, keeping them dedicated to carbon rims, and not constantly riding through muck and grit, the life of a carbon rim depends on how long you can go until you crash it into a curb or something like that.

Tubular rims suffer bangs and collisions better than clinchers, in my experience.
