How to spot damage to carbon rims
I was riding in a cyclotour (sportive) at the weekend and got sandwiched on some cobbles ending up with probably a pedal in my front wheel. I didn’t come off, but one of the spokes on my lovely new 50mm carbon wheels is kinked and needs replacing. The wheel went about 8mm out of true, even with the brakes fully open, 90 km of brake rub didn’t help my time. I’m happy replacing the spoke, but is there anything I should be looking for to check for damage to the rim? It looks OK, but these are the first carbon wheels I’ve had, so I’d appreciate any tips. Thanks
I've made a close inspection and can't see any cracks, so I think I got a way with it.
