I have a trouble.
I just the new Lightweight wheels last week. I was too excited and didn't do a total checking.
Look at this spoke,a small hole. It's new,I take my bike home and find the small hole.
Will this hole make my wheel weaker than others?
I'm waiting for some answers.
:cry: :cry: :cry:

See if you can upload a better/larger picture. It's really hard to see what's going on there...

^^This, the hole looks way smooth to be from a ding. You said the wheels are new?

Take better pictures, and email them, with the wheel's product number, to CarbonSports for their assessment. Perhaps a CarbonSports representative will show up on this thread, but you should go ahead and send an email.

This "hole" is not really a hole but a cast of some dirt in the spokes mold. This is nothing you have to worry about - it will not weaken your spoke or wheel as the complete bunch of fibres is undamaged.
