Shimano Recalls Dura Ace Carbon Clinchers

I had been hearing rumors all year that these wheels sucked, but apparently they suck so bad that you can get your money back. According to the CPSC, the “rim surface and spoke hole plugs on the wheel can cause a puncture to the inner tube, resulting in a flat tire.” They add, “this can cause the rider to lose control and fall.” There are so many things in the world that cause me to lose control and fall (my love of marshmallows, new episodes Americas Top Model, rejection, etc) that I never would have known to blame Shimano. Gimme back my $1600 dollars!
