Anyone else have the issue of a rattle in a carbon wheel??
Have just noticed when spinning the front wheel getting a rattling from wheel that sounds like a stone or something inside the wheel rim (60mm) tube and tyre off and have shaken but still can't get rid of it, any ideas???

    Carbon rms have often poor finish... It can be that a piece of composite from the hole drillings ended up in the rim... Nothing to worry about... You should only hear it at low speed, as centrifuge force should glue it in place at high speed
