How fast do parts wear out?
I'm 6' and 250 lbs.
I've been commuting 15 mile R/T for a year and a half now.
Upgraded from a cheap Next folder to a TREK 820 with slicks and now
a Novara Safari. The first 2 bikes I broke lots of stuff all the time.
Cheap I understand. Bought the Safari and did the Southern Tier last spring.
Brought it back home and am using it for my commute and fun rides.
The problem is the rear hub needs replaced after only 5000 miles.
Is that normal?
Do we Clydes wear stuff out that quick?
Or is 5000 miles about normal for stuff we Clydes use?
Please help here.
Thanks a million.
