    Damaged braking surface on tubular rim/Trispoke

    I have a Specialized Trispoke with a damaged section on it with a little chunk on it. Can the rim be repaired or worked on in any fashion or are rims a one and done on a carbon layup like a Trispoke? This is an aluminum rim, not one of the new carbon HED's. Thanks

    Pretty sure the wheel is toast. The carbon sections of the wheel are bonded to that rim. So even if you could find the matching rim surface (HED now makes the H3 wheels), how would you un-bond the old rim without destroying the carbon and then re-bond the new rim?
