Shimano R535 Wheelset Help!(1 post)

Shimano R535 Wheelset Help!cvento
May 9, 2002 6:17 PM
Hello,

I have a Shimano R-535 wheelset that I have had for about 9 months. I have
about 1200 miles on the set, and when I pulled it out of my truck to ride
today, I noticed I had my very first flat in the rear wheel.

The puncture in the tube was located on the underside of the tube where it
protruded into the sealed spoke recess. This is the first time I have had
the tire off, and thought it odd there was no cover over the spoke recess
holes. Anyway, I put another tube in, pumped it up, and within seconds, IT
POPPED IN THE SAME PLACE!

Does anyone have any experience with these wheelses? I am going to pull the
tire off the front as well to see if maybe the rear is missing some type of
velox or tape or something.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
