OK I am 195 lbs, I ride the bike on tours, meaning I carry up to about 70lbs on it from time to time. I am a strong rider.
I have broken two Phil Wood spindles, and have bent the most recent Shimano I chose as a replacement.
What the heck is going on? Are there any "super spindles" out there?
This is a custom made bike, so there is no brand associated with it.
I am using a Campy crank and chainrings... been using the same for nearly 20 years.
