I bought a Carrera Velos from Halfords and when riding at speed there was a very noticable thud everytime the wheel rotated over a certain spot with brakes applied.
After looking at the seam, where the rim is welded, it is not aligned and shreds the crap out of my brake pads. So I took it back to Halfords who said that's what I get for my money, so I've switched for a newer model which came out a few days after I got the new bike. Same problem.
Halfords are saying it's the manufacturers fault (tough luck basically). So do I have a new faulty bike, buy at my expense new rims because they won't replace them or refund?
