    Worn rim?

    My wheel has been wearing my brake pads rapidly and seems to have a ridge . Is worn out or normal as I see eBay listings of Same Easton circuits that look the same

    Yes, it is worn.
    Replace as soon as you can, or die in a fiery explosion.
    Hope that helps!

    And his brake pads/shoes appear to be on backwards....

    pretty sure you have to buy a new wheel. that's what i did. that's one area where disc is superior to rim brake bikes. my older wheels had thick alloy brake tracks but that's less true today where everyone values light over durable

    That rim is finished. And as Marc posted put your brake pads on correctly.

    That rim is toast. Replace it before your next ride or buy a good life insurance policy. It will soon collapse.

    Replace your brake pads too and put them on correctly this time.

    That rim was worn out a long time ago.

    Brake pads are backwards!

    ... and wash your bike more often.
