Nah. The first picture looks like a scratch and the second picture looks harmless. Unless it's deeper than it looks.

If it blows up, you'll know it.

What's the point of trying to fuck dedeeadee out of a wheel by giving him shoddy advice? That was stupid.

There is no right way to sand carbon. Sand paper will break down the carbon fibers and compromise the strength. I thought you learned that by now?

Yeah, we've all had our fair share of that.

@brndlpz hmm its like a chip on a frame paint im not to sure ill try to take a picture to show how deep that chip
@akuma sanding a carbon, will break th carbon fiber it self , why you give me a shitty advice? and yes thats a china carbon wheel with a novatec but i change the bearing with a cema ceramic bearing , it cost me about 500$+

Looks alright, but you should take it into your LBS and have them check it out. A picture is definitely not the same as having it in front of you.

@sublime thx and sorry about the photos things i thought it will help :(, ill try to go to lbs aroud the town for checking the wheel:)

just bring it to your lbs, if they say its safe, then you are good to go.

you can just get a clear nail polish from your gf, or get it at walgreen/cvs for $2? and do a minor touch up on that chip

It's not a big deal. If you are worried about it drop some epoxy in it. If you want it fixed for good, PM and I can advise you. I do carbon repair regularly.

Akuma - grow up kid. It's pretty obvious you're a weird guy. I'm just trying to help a fellow cycling enthusiast out. Unless you are being serious (not too sure) then I can probably help you as well.

Some people have far too much time on their hands.

This minor chip is fine. You'll know when the wheel is unsafe to ride. There would need to be some major crack in it. But like Scrod said.. you'll know right before you hit the ground if that wheels safe or not.
