..and not happy!
The LBS has had my commuter Giant Yukon rear wheel for a week now! I heard a pop and then when free wheeling (which I don't do often if it makes a difference?) a clunk/pop and hitch was felt from my rear wheel. Not good! I turned around and went home and swapped out for the car (suck-0!!).
Long and short of it is, the rear hub is so locked up they haven't even been able to disasemble it! The cassette is fine, the wheel is fine but it still went DOA. The kicker is that I've had this bike for less than two months and have a hair under 600 miles on it. It looks to be covered by the factory warranty (thankfully) but still!! I'm not overly rough but I do my best to always crank and I've found some potholes at 430am on my way to work. I didn't do anything out of the ordinary. I mearly stood up on the cranks to get across a four lane as fast as I could when my light turned.
I'm bumming hard! The ol' Chicago Schwinn just isn't cutting commuter duty.
Anyone else have this happen to them?
One week down and prolly another till I get it back....
any advice for me here? Any MTB hubs recommended for an Uber Clyde? Im at a loss here...
