Now then, checking my H PLUS RIMS today prior to putting on the bike , looking out of the window I don't think I'll bother. I was very slightly troubled by the fact that there was no rim wear indicator ( I did know this before purchase ) when I spotted a very small indent in the rim. If you have these rims get the valve hole at 12 o-clock position & then look at the 11 o-clock & you should see the same indent this is the same both sides. problem/concern solved ? opinions please

    Loads of companies do this. When the rim is worn enough so that the hole dissapears it's time to replace. It's completely normal.
  • ugo, sorry old boy but you have told me no such thing, there is no need to shout, the only wear indicators I've ever seen are a continuous line or a series of indents. the mark on the h plus is no more than a small single centre pop mark.Thank you for the info.

    It is in the outbox, which means you have not opened it... It should be in your inbox unless for some reason the PMessaging system is down

  • Whenever I get an e-mail it appears on my page list (light colour print=opened---dark = unopened) & I must admit I've never had occasion to go into the inbox till now, but as you suggested I tried it & it only showed the 4 mails that were already on the screen. I'm using f/fox & I don't know if that makes a difference but it has to be said that computers & I don't always get along too well. My grandson usually puts me right (with many sighs & rolling of the eyes).
