I was cleaning my wheels and noticed that the carbon looks to be delaminating right at the brake track. Is this fixable or are these now junk? Hopefully the link below shows the pic

    Yes it is coming away but then it’s just an aero fairing on an alloy rim anyway, can probably bond it back on easily enough.

    Zipps are not like Mavic Cosmic Carbone the carbon is structural and contain the spoke nipples. I think there finished, I’ve seen quotes for some repair jobs and I don’t think it would be worth it for these.
