Damn Aaron that sucks. Got a back up plan for the vacation?
Will the mfg replace the rim?
Have you carefully inspected all the others?

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

LUCKILY I have a complete spare, wheel and tire so I am heading out to put it on now. I have to take the wheel to a distributor tomorrow and they have to file a warranty claim on it. I dont see why it wouldn't be covered.

I have heard of some of the rockstars having small holes/cracks and leaking air. BUT I have never heard/seen anything like this....

Ouch. I should keep a better eye on mine. I never heard about the problems, until after I bought mine, but it does seem to be popping up more and more recently from what I have read on the net.
