    Giant SLR1 carbon wheelset - is this a problem?

    I really love my Giant SLR1 carbon wheelset but the front wheel has developed a series of strange lines on the spoke side. They go almost all the way around but never open up into cracks or gaps. No they are not scratches (note they go under the sticker).

    Never been crashed, no extreme temps, no off road, etc.. just regular road use. Vittoria Rubino Pro clinchers 700x23, ~115 psi (lower than recommended max). I'm 158 lbs.

    No response from Giant by email (3 days).

    Could it just be an issue with clearcoat or something (?)?

    I would take them back..... Those cracks could explode at any minute, or not!

    'brifter' is a lame word.

    115psi?!? I don't even know what size they are and that's too much.


    If you've got that much pressure in them and they're still in one piece they're probably fine. Just so we know...what size tires?


    ETA: I'm an idiot, the size is right there in your post. But that's still wayyyyyyy to much pressure.

    You should be running 90 F, 100 R MAX at your weight and that tire width.
