    Deemax problem!

    Okay i have had my deemaxs for a month now and i keep hearing metal rolling around in side the rim at low speeds. I'm figureing that its a piece of metal from when mavic punched out a hole in the rim for the spoke and got stuck in there. Anyone have this problem before and how did you deal with it. If i send it back to mavic I will have to wait like 3 weeks for them to check it and send me a new one or the same wheel back. I would rather not have to do that.

    take off the tire and remove the valve stem, you should be able to liberate the piece from there

    actually its probably the pin they use to hold the rim together before they weld it, not sure if you can get it out. You can always remove the eyelet thats closest to the sound, but really you should be able to move it around anyways if that would work.
