The short version: I broke a 20-year-old Campy Record hub. I posted about this on the C&V forum, and one respondent suggested that Campy would warrant the hub, even after all these years. Is that true?
I have a rear Campy Record small-flange 36-hole hub that I bought in the mid-eighties, and used lightly since then -- the hub might have 2000 miles on it, or even less. Laced 3-cross, straight-gauge spokes on a Mavic G40 rim. At some point (not recently), I dropped the chain into the spokes while riding, can't remember it well, so the outside spokes were a bit scarred behind the freewheel. A couple weeks ago, I was riding to work when I heard a pop that I thought was a stone. I continued riding awhile, and then noticed a wobble in the rear rim. When I looked closely, I realized that the drive-side flange had broken out across two spoke holes. The funny thing is that it actually broke at the inside spoke, not the outside one, where the piece of flange was still attached.
I've now disassembled the wheel, but I did take photos, and I have all the parts.
