Oil and dirt around spoke ends.(2 posts)

Oil and dirt around spoke ends.new wheels

I bought a new groupo, campy chorus 10. After about 300 miles and 3 weeks I noticed oil and dirt where the spoke meets the rim. Should I be concerned? I haven't had new wheels for awhile and I can't remeber this being the norm. (Mavic open pro rims)
That's normal...melanthius

...it's just the oil the builder lubed the nipple seat with duing the build seeping out. Just wipe it away as it appears, no biggie.
