Lightweight Obermayer Rear Wheel Damage

The first of the nasty pavement edges in the Solvang Spring Double made a very ugly noise. I didn’t realize that the rear wheel had been damaged, and it held up fine for the next 140 miles. As there was little or no braking required for Solvang, I wasn’t even aware of the damage until today, when I examined the wheel while inflating the tire.

The wheel has been structurally compromised with carbon cracking in the rim section radiating downwards, and a distinct bulge to the aero part of the rim that has a chiclet in/out movement to the touch. Not good.

Fortunately, I purchased the Lightweight “Service Up” warranty when I bought the Obermayer wheelset (at an extra 10% charge). That ought to take care of repair or replacement of this wheel (repair seems rather dubious).

How long Lightweight will take to replace the wheel I do not know, but since this was my most-used and favorite wheel, it’s a bummer.
