I am curious to see if others have the same issue as me. Or perhaps can tell me it isn’t an issue at all…
I have started to notice that the rim metal surrounding each spoke eyelet on my KH rim has a slight raised area, like the metal is being ever so slightly pulled up, dome-ing it toward the spoke. It’s really slight, but i can feel with my fingertip a very little bump. It’s pretty impossible to photograph otherwise I would, but in a good like when I spin the wheel I can see a slight deformity on the outside of each rim spoke hole.
I did contact UDC to check if this was actually the normal appearance - can’t remember if it’s something I’m just noticing or is a new thing… They said it is probably the tool that put in the eyelets… It could still be that of course, but every time I look at it it does seem a hair more noticeable. Could be just paranoia, but I’d like to know if anyone else has/ has had this with their trials uni.
I should also point out I’m by no means a skilled rider so haven’t been punishing this wheel at all - still I did notice this after starting to learn to hop… Ummmm…
P.S. Spokes a really tight - Could this be the issue? I had assumed that a trials wheel would be pretty tight compared with my other larger unis… But now I’m wondering if it is perhaps too tight!?
