When I started racing in 1953, wood rims were still being used mostly on training wheels. They were usually an older set of wheels. When I went training, I usually had a rear brake attached with a home made brake bridge. The brake pads always wore the finish off the sides of the rim. On one occassion during a sprint, my rear wheel completely delaminated in one place causing the wheel to
collapse. Down I went.
