I could also call it nonsense, blather, gibberish, tripe, balderdash, hogwash, hooey, rubbish, or poppycock. But, for now, I'm going to stick with drivel.

No, I got that. Im just a little surprised at the life expectancy of a rim-brake carbon wheel.

8k-9k is about the time I've noticed most rim brakes needing attention for standard material wheels. To go beyond that & not have need to have done anything up to that point, especially with carbon, seems like a reliable maintenance span.

I'd push my dealer if I were you. I've had great experience with Giant warranties, and I credit having a great LBS going to bat for me.

FWIW, I have the same wheels from late 2015 (2016 model Propel). They're pushing 40K miles at this point and still look and function great. They shouldn't be delaminating.

Formerly fastest rider in the grupetto, currently slowest guy in the peloton

The OP created a bf account a few days ago just to create this thread...And has not posted to any other threads, nor been back to this one, since the day the thread was created.

I am glad that more people are riding now, and some have joined bf...But this BS is ridiculous.

He's probably had second thoughts, may be a little embarrassed. He got pretty limited support for his notion that Giant might owe him something beyond the warranty.

I would still take it to small claims court. I believe there is such a thing as ------implied warranty. When you buy something, you assume it isnt just going to fall apart.
