Race X Lites

I had a pair (2007? the one's with black rims and DT240 hubs) that came with a bike I bought.. . I trashed the front in a crit (re-trued and demoted to a cyclocross front beater). Then, I noticed the rear rim started developing cracks at the spoke holes. I took it to a local trek dealer and had a new 2009 wheel (silver rim, white spokes, red nips).

Check the rear rim for cracks... it's a known issue.

FWIW - the thrashed from wheel has been bomber for a cross training wheel, save the hop from the crit crash and repair.

The 2009 rear wheel has been OK.... fairly stiff. I had it trued 1 time last year for free under warranty. It's now due for another true.
