I went on my first ride on my new Tallboy LT today and had a fall that resulted in my front wheel potato chipping. I was thinking it was all my fault for failing on the nasty little climb I was on. When I got home I pulled the wheel off, removed the tire and tube and started to look to see if I might be able to true it back up. That was when I noticed that the joint in the rim partially separated. Now I am thinking that the rim may have bent because it was defective. I fell because I stalled out on the climb, so it's not a case of going fast and tweaking the wheel.
Anybody else had an issue with the WTB i23 rims?
