Anyone know what the current warranty deal is with Bontrager Race 28h wheels that were stock on the Domane? Was just truing up one for a buddy and realized the rims was cracking/pulling through at a drive-side spoke hole. Rear wheel. I've seen online that Trek may be doing a no-questions-asked replacement on these wheels. True/False?

I had a 2 month old frame replaced last year. I was told that the warranty is 2 years for the components of the bike (wheels, drivetrain, etc) and lifetime for the frame. If the rims came with the bike and are within the coverage timeframe, you should be able to get them replaced under warranty. How old are the bike and rims?

No dice, it's older than that. Apparently this is a fairly widespread issue for these rims. I'll order a new rim and relace it. Thanks for the input.
