I cracked my rear 35mm Light Bicycle rim on Cressy also. I took some strategically angled pictures and sent them off with a very kiss arse email (tyres pumped up, elderly rider blah blah).
Will cost you about $40 postage.
I've now gone back to alloy (Easton Arc 30), the're...
Two cracks on the edge of the rim, a bit of delamination as well. I'd hope the warranty comes through due to the rims being only 5 months old and they were built by LB. I also requested a strong rim. We'll see how I go, easier to sell two rims.

So I was just wondering if there was anyone heading up...

Started the day with a run down Gang gangs then onto Dalatite. Bike felt pretty good although I think I've got a bit of work to do sorting out this suspension, especially the Pikes. I also missed the big ring of the 2 x XX cranks, with the 32 tooth...
As promised in my newbie thread, here is the pictorial of the last 12 months of bike ownership.
We'll start with my first serious (for me) mountain bike, the Polygon AX3. Such a sweet bike and very hard to let go.
After the Stonefly episode, a 29er, not a...
