    Is it possible to glue back the plastic fairing to the rim on one of these wheels?
    Asking for a friend, its coming away slightly at the brake track apparently.

    Apparently it is. I bought a set recently that need this done. Came with some 3M adhesive . I haven't actually got around to doing it yet though. From what I can see, they might have been glued slightly off centre first day with either the carbon or the glue being touched by the brake blocks which possibly caused the localised issue. Once I actually get around to it I'll
    let you know if it works.

    Common enough issue on the older Cosmics.
    Have a search of the online forums or consult the lbs for best advice.
