I guess its time for a file and some sandpaper

My only advice: be careful as to how you "smooth" this. There are several ways to go, and at least one will perhaps lead to a bad end. Ask directly someone here who has a lot of experience with wheels/rim-grinding/sanding, so that you wind up with the result you want. Good luck with it!

So ... how'd the long distance extravaganza go? You know the rules ... it didn't happen if there aren't any pix.

I got to the fire station at Rincon...55 miles...was fighting headwind the whole way alone...so I was pretty cooked...
Had I realized how good the tailwind was I would have gone to carpinteria..
ended up with 110.5 and a dinged rim. Which I have hopefully fixed up now!

Mark had 140..everyone else about 137..they skipped Gobernador...
Was a really beautiful day out...
