Selling my Tubular wheelset on the forum and after a set of clinchers.

Seen these on Gumtree and They seem perfect! ... 1084328270

Just a bit worried about the Bubbling. Can anyone confirm that its purely cosmetic or would it be an issue?

Cheers all


  • Let's assume someone posts on here that the bubbling is cosmetic. (you never know the the seller could also post on this forum under a pseudonym) and you go ahead and buy the wheels. It then turns out they're a pile of poo. How are you going to feel?

    The only way you are going to know and be satisfied the bubbling is cosmetic is to go look and decide for yourself.

  • In these rims the carbon is structural, in other words they are not like Mavic Cosmic or HED Jet where it's only a fairing. That looks like a manufacturing problem, some layer delaminating... cosmetic or not it's hard to say

    Well they look far from perfect to me. Personally, cosmetic or not, I'd walk away.
