F3: Rim damage?

Hi all,

cleaning the bike intensely ;-) after the first rides, i have noticed some notches on the inside of the rear rim (see pics)
Does anyone knows about similar "damages". What could be the real cause?
I am sure that they have exist before dispatch.
Is it worth reporting it to the dealer?

Cheers
Toni

Sorry for my bavarian english... ;-)

Yes report to dealer. Make sure it is scratches and not residue from the chain.

You can see it's chain lube man, Andrew is right, see it smearing in the first picture.

I wish it would be chain lube :-/ ...
I have cleaned the rim with brake cleaning agent.
You can feel the scratches with your finger nails

Just get a degreaser, that stuff on your picture is spreading, I get that all the time with the carbon ceramic brakes, sticks to the rims like it's welded on. Spray silicone spray on your rims to help you get stuff of in the future.
Use a soft cloth mate, it looks like your using sandpaper on your rims.

Thx, this sounds convincing: brake pad wear debris...
That stuff is just in the plane of the discbrake. The chain runs far outside of the rim.

Question

This is a weird one ?.. Under normal circumstances brake cleaner is a good agent for removing most oil, grease residue and lubrication substances.

Without seeing the damage in the flesh its difficult to ascertain what might have caused it..

If you’re saying its in the surface of the material, could it have been caused by the relocation of some wheel weights and a reaction to the glue lifting off the surface finish ?.. I appreciate that's a slim chance.

Like others have said, don't do anything else and report it ASAP to the supplying dealer.

Mate,dont use brake cleaner on your wheel,it will mark your rim (too late now)just a mild degreaser with a soft cloth.Those marks do look like scratches though.

first thing i thought was chain lube, mine had some on the inside of the rim, it took tar and glue remover to get it off, i agree brake cleaner will damage the finish.

If it is scratches it could be from tyre fitting machine?

Strange

Treat others as you wish to be treated
