• The braking surface on my Pro-Lite Padova disc wheel is locally wearing away. Is this a problem? The brake pad is now, I guess, bearing straight down on the carbon layup.

    Is this a problem?

  • Pretty sure I’ve seen carbon repair places offer a refinishing service for the breaking surface on carbon rims/wheels.

    I think that, when new, you are basically breaking on lacquer so it’s just a case of replacing that and you get a load more life.

    Obviously it’ll depend how far gone it is now and stuff so I’d stop using it and get it seen to asap.

    Edit: Had a Google, opinions seem mixed.

    This place seems to have done it though… https://carbonbikerepair.co.uk/wp/?p=137­0
