Jerome -- The Wheel Punisher

I built up a pair of wheels for Jerome back in 2012 using DT Swiss RR415 rims.  Pretty quickly he had dinged them up, and it was clear they would not last forever.  Well, over two and a half years later, and he finally traded them in for a wheel with a stronger (and wider) rear rim ... more suitable for his style and type of riding.  Wheel No 00020.

The RR415's took a real beating.  Aluminum clincher rims are, ultimately, disposable items.
Looks like Jerome tried a can opener on these rims?
More deep dings. Amazing that they were still rideable.  But time for a change.
