Hi all,

I noticed this damage on my pretty Enve wheels.. is this bad? Can I keep on riding these?
The second picture shows a normal part of my brake track.

Thanks :-)

Just looks like normal wear so safe to continue riding. How many miles have you done on them?

About 1500-2000. I have zero experience with carbon wheels. This is my first set.

Are you using the supplied brake pads or something else?

that does not seem right... I'd send a pic off to Enve and see what they say, I dont have that many miles on my 4.5 (maybe half that) and they still look perfect. I probably have more miles then that on my 2.2 tubs though and they still look perfect.

Already did that, no answer yet :-) I hope it's not that bad..

So did I but I can see why it was edited. Potentially could be an issue

i have no problem with that. :-)

The "problem" dit not occure during that time. it looks worse in photo than in real life. I don't feel anything sharp.

Personally, I don't think it will affect the ride quality. Just wanted your opinion :-)
