Holy crap!!! I saw the first photo and i'm like that's shocking an intact pressure bladder not just flakes. Then when I saw the second photo my jaw just dropped! I have had remnants of a pressure bladder in my scott addict frame but nothing like this.

I'm surprised you could pull all those pieces out through the valve and spoke holes without tearing them.

Wonder how much it all weighs?

Could almost get a warranty for that

In what way(s) could this be considered a product failure?

I didn’t weight it, but 40/50grms..

It was hard, but with a Jbend spoke and a small pliers and a lot of time 😂

In this day rims inside must be as nice as outside.
Those weight very very little - only problem with bladders is when you must get nipple or washer from rim.
