Heliomatic spoke shear
On Sheldons site he warns of the Helio-comical / Malliard hub combination shearing
spokes and sure enuff after reading this I sheared a spoke on my commuter !
The only thing that I did was take the plastic ring off and clean and lube the cluster
about 4 days earlier. The Chain has never gone into the spokes.........
I dont beleive(?) the article give a reason for the shearing but I want to do something
to make this NOT a regular occurance....Do you seasoned Peugeot veterans who still
run this stuff do anything to keep this from happening constantly ?? Is it something
with the cluster or just the design of the Malliard hub ?? I want to keep all my Pug stuff
original if possible so any suggestions would be appreciated !
