Speaking of rim eating potholes...

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Speaking of rim eating potholes...

During steep descent Sun felt that my Roubaix Pro was handling a little squirrelly. UP on the stand I can feel a slight lump or bump in my back rim when wheel is spinning freely. Very slight not even a 16th. Same on the front. Is this normal for mavic equipe or do I need to get them adjusted or are they broken?

How big is the bump? Is it across several spokes and can be trued? Or is it between spokes? The small sharp bumps are impossible to true out. I use a 1-foot long 2x4 and wedge it between the spokes in that area and whack it back out with a hammer...
