    Cracks in rim?? Warning: Big ol image

    Cleaning my bike today and noticed what appears to be cracks all along the rim. Im not a big guy and suck to much to ride that hard...
    Is this just the paint cracking or something more?

    I'd be curious to know: 1) does the rest of this rim look like that? 2) what does your other rim look like?

    The rest of the rim looks like that and the front wheel to a lesser extent.

    Looks more like scratches to me then cracks but it's hard to tell from a photo.

    Have the same issue with the same rims. Shop took a look, spoke to specialized. Word was it's just cracks in the anodized finish.... Rode my wheels (hard) all summer and fall last year and they did not explode!

    Hard to tell from the photo - it could just be cracks in the paint. Take it to your LBS and get them to check it. I would say that it would be very rare for an alloy rim to crack longitudinally like that....
