Cracked Bicycle Rims
Sunday, July 05th, 2015 | Author:

I’ve been noted to be pretty harsh to mechanical devices that I own (I used to break the frames of my motorcycles during my motocross days), but I never expected to have multiple cracks in the rear rim on my Cannondale bicycle.    These Mavic rims are not cheapies, but in the second photo below you can see one of six cracks in the holes for the spokes.

Fortunately, my trusty bicycle service center at Troy Family Bike Shop got me fixed up with new rims and a tuneup.
