Received my new wheels last week, thought they were the dogs danglies, light and tough ("for aggressive trail riders that aren't afraid to take risks and go big"). Well, last night on my usual 'urban MTB' ride (read commute ) I managed to put an almighty ding in the rear rim, riding down a flight of blingin stairs... hardly seems like 'going big' to me!
Anyone else had strength issues with these rims? Or am I just so hardcore that I'm the only one to manage a dent in them? I might add that I've done exactly the same route with my 'old' wheels, DT 4.1 rims (that really do have a rep for being soft) nae problems at all
Any chance of a warranty claim to Spesh do you think? Or do I just have to suck it up?
