2013 - Mavic Aksium Wheels seams that look like cracks
I noticed that there are cracks in the wheels directly across from the valves. I first thought they were broken and possibly manufacture defects. However, I found out they are simply non-welded seams. One of the seams are a little uneven but they are smooth on the brake pad side. Apparently they are there by design just in case you were wondering they were too.
