I just noticed today that my front Reynolds DV46 UL rim us has warped around the nipples in at least 5 different locations. This wheelset was one of the first batches that came out, those ones that were around 1180gr.
Anyhow Ive been riding them for 3 years without even noticing any defects and they are strangely still true.
So just wanted to ask your wise opinion on whether you think they are safe to ride or not?
Disclosure: I'm sponsored by Velocite, but I do give my honest opinion about them (I'm endorsed to race their bikes, not say nice things about them)

As long as these are a Reynolds stock build and haven't been over-tensioned by a ham-fisted "mechanic" then i suspect Reynolds will be receptive...Reynolds is known for being quite good at backing their product. EM3

Sure that they are not carbon?
Well, a mate had the same with his 32UL 's.Had them only for 4700 kms on his bike. He kept on riding with them. The next step are spoke failures. Spokes brake just at the internal nipple edge. Therefore be prepared for deep scratches in your carbon frame inside your chain stays and or seat stays.
I would not ride with them any further.
So this is an "high end non Chinese component failure" then.

I dont think Ill ever buy a Reynolds wheelset again. Not only because of this issue. The drilled holes on the rim seem to strip everytime you replace a tire. Ive seen the same thing happen on on my SDV66's so its a general thing.
