Fixed.

Yeah it's where they weld it on the inside of the rim. So if you took your tyre, tube and rim strip off you'd see the welding on the inside of the rim.

i dont think thats supposed to be there, that looks like a shadow rim and shadow rims have a welded seam so there shouldnt be a line






EDIT: its possible you cracked the weld

looks to straight to me but idk i cant see it other than picture so be the judge and use common sense to if it is cracked

what did you do? what was your tire pressure? its impossible for a rim to just get messed up, rims only get beat up from getting beat up... aka riding bikes

but he says it goes all the way around so it sounds to me as the welding mark like on any other rim enless his is special and is one piece of metal

|

1/3/2011 9:58 PM

the picture just looks like a pinned rim, or even a weld... since a welded rim is just a pinned rim welded

blurry pics don't tell the story

That picture is so clear...

I'd suggest a new rim if it cracked though. Not worth it to have a wheel fold on you...

dont rims only have one weld though? or have i just never noticed theres to welds?

all rims have this. when they make rims they bend the aluminuminto a circle but then they have to weld it or pin it together thus creating a point where it is more likely to fade.
