So i just got my new Mavic Cosmic Pro carbon Sl C Wheelset and i discovered a little chip on one Rim-surface. Its really small id guess like 0,2-0,5mm, i can barely feel it, but its there and i have no experience with Carbon Wheels since this is my first. i just wanted to know if you guys think, that it could cause any problems in the future? The wheelset is brand new though. ... 9.jpg.html ... 2.jpg.html

i think it'll be fine, but if it's brand new and u can exchange for a new one, why not?
It'll be constantly on my mind if I didn't get it exchanged.
